Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich made strong claims behind the motives of Democrats seeking to quickly push President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better spending plan during a time of spiking inflation.
He claimed Democrats are out to “pay off” their political funders before losing control of the House following the 2022 midterms.

“A Tsunami’s Coming”
“If you’re Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer you’re already discounting next year and assuming you’re gonna get wiped out, so you’re trying to drive through everything to pay off your allies before the catastrophe hits,” Gingrich said.
“And I think it’s a little bit like people trying to build a house on a beach while a tsunami’s coming, and they’re trying desperately to finish the house and this wave gets bigger every week,” he added.
“The broader Democratic Party fares even worse, with 45 percent approving and 55 percent disapproving. By comparison, Republicans notched 49 percent approval and 51 percent disapproval,” The Hill shared regarding a poll earlier in December.
“I’m Amazed By It”
Gingrich also noted he was amazed by the massive spending of the left.
“I’m amazed by it, and it will be very interesting to see if Joe Manchin caves because what you’re seeing is a network of political power in Washington against the entire rest of the country,” he said during the interview.

Gingrich also believes the midterms will face a Democrat “catastrophe” that turns the House red and possibly the Senate.
With less than a year until the midterm elections, Americans will soon see if Gingrich is correct.
The rocky politics of 2021 led to strong Republican wins in Virginia and other states. If this year is any indicator, 2022 will be a major change with Democrats struggling against a loss of power.
