    How about taking turns talking and answering every question asked ... Rather than answering a question with a question, as the commentators know the talking points, well all the audience doesn't...

      Appreciate the oppurtunity to respond. Mr. Speaker and Mr. Van Jones, the most pressing issue is not Obamacare. The most pressing issue is returning confidence to either party. How would you accomplish that? And what in your view, is on the voters minds as they cast their in not to distant future? Thank you and all the best.

    Newt comes across as responsible when he has been humbled and/or disgraced, but if he is winning, he is most arrogant, unreasonable jerk I have every seen!

    Looked forward to this discussion with Van Jones. We were unable to view it. Enjoy your show Mr. Speaker and views of all your contributors. I like many of are being askd to contribute to canidates election fund. Your thoughts on contributions and it's impact on fairly representing the people once elected ? Seems so many have forgotten where they came from and whom they represent.

    All the best. I was interested in this discussion with Van Jones. Unfortunately unable to view. Enjoy your show Mr. Speaker. I find it interesting canidates on both sides asking for donations for their election. When so many Americans suffer financialy, confused by elected officials actions, and party divide. Shame all sides can't get together and impliment a budget. Seems this would return confidence to all. Regarless of party affiliation.

    I am neither American nor a resident. But Newt comes across as a reasonable voice in a milieu replete of utter chaos. Maybe people are more reasonable when they are not in government.

      Now there is an outsider looking in at sanity.

      Newt is never reasonable – unless you agree with him.

    Insurance is the PROBLEM. Insurance wastes 25% or more of your health care dollars for NO VALUE ADDED to your health care. Insurance CAN NOT, WILL NOT, and NEVER HAS been able to control health care prices. A single payer system is the ONLY system that will allow us, as an entire nation, to negotiate better health care prices (the REAL problem).

    Gingrich, the big fraud of the Republicans. He was a fraud in the HOUSE. TRASH the nation and continuing that mission with the current Tea Party and Republicans. Gingrich LIES is you check the real facts.
