2 • BENNETT BANNER •JANUARY 26, 1995
Not since the Eisenhower years has there been an
overwhelming abundance of Republicans in Congress.
Nov. 8, voters made it plain that they wanted a change, and
they were not buying President Clinton’s version of it
The 104th Congress celebrated its first day on the job
by working until 2 a.m. as commanded by new Speaker of
the House Newt Gingrich.
What can be said about Gingrich that has not already
For one thing, the impact that Gingrich will have on
America is truly scary because this “Boy’s Town enthusi
ast” sees orphanages as an alternative to young mothers
rearing their children.
All of this is coming from a man who believes in the
“moral structure of the family being preserved.”
In a story published in the Jan. 19 issue News &
Record Gingrich said that men were physically stronger
than women and that women did not have any business in
combat. He stated that he believes women are physically
weaker than men.
It seems as though we have a Rush Limbaugh clone
who has more opinions than anyone can stand in our
government. Yet, Gingrich does not want to hear any
special interest subjects when Congress discusses the
issues. The Georgia politician seems to want to undermine
everything that would help the poor and disadvantaged. His
plans of supporting cuts on welfare, social security, elluca-
tion, and inner city programs such as midnight basketball
have been sacrificed.
Is this supposed to be a breath of fresh air in the House
of Representatives or is it the stale wind of the Bush and
era? gtephanie McCorkle
