According to political scientist Sean M. Theriault of the University of Texas, Gingrich has had a profound influence on other Republican lawmakers, especially those who served with him in the House of Representatives when they took his filibuster tactics.  A 2011 study by Duke University political scientist David W. Rohde in the Journal of Politics found that “almost all of the growth in the polarization of Senate parties since the early 1970s can be taken into account by Republican senators who previously sat in the House of Representatives after 1978,” when Gingrich was first elected to the House of Representatives.  In May 1997, Republican leaders reached a compromise with Democrats and President Clinton on the federal budget. The agreement included a federal spending plan to reduce the federal deficit and achieve balanced budgets by 2002. The plan included a total of $152 billion in tax cuts between parties over five years.  Other important parts of the spending plan have called for $115 billion in restructuring Medicare, $24 billion for extending health insurance to the children of the working poor, tuition tax credits and a $2 billion initiative for social assistance jobs.   Now the prospects for an agreement between the parties on a new aid law have fallen before the November elections. Negotiations between Democrats in the House of Representatives and the White House remain stalled, with Republicans raising a $500 billion proposal and Democrats insisting on the need for at least $2,200 billion.
“I don`t think it will happen because there is such a difference,” said Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.), who spoke of a perspective shared by several other senators this week. “There might be a chance for [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [Sen. Charles E.]. Schumer and the White House to do something, and every day you approach the election, the probability is probably lower. If your word anagrams, they are also mentioned with a definition of the word if we have one. The Gingrich Group was established in 1999 as a consulting firm. Over time, its non-health-free clients have been removed and renamed the Center for Health Transformation. Both companies had sales of $55 million between 2001 and 2010.  Revenues came from more than 300 health insurance companies and other clients whose membership cost up to $200,000 per year in exchange for access to Gingrich and other benefits.  In 2011, when Gingrich became a presidential candidate, he sold his interest in the company and said he would publish the full list of his clients and the sums he paid “as much as possible”.   Later, Gingrich organized a series of political workshops at the GoP convention in Tampa, presented by the Republican National Committee entitled “Newt University.”  He and his wife Calista spoke on the last day with an introduction by Ronald Reagan to Congress.   Clinton said that the Republican changes would deprive the U.S. Treasury of its ability to dive into federal funds to avoid a credit crisis. The Republican amendments have limited appeals from inmates on death row, have made it more difficult to grant health, safety and environmental regulations, and have forced the president to balance a seven-year budget.
