Top members of the GOP and Newt Gingrich are trading barbs after Gingrich criticized the Paul Ryan budget. After Donald Trump's announcement that he wouldn't run, Gingrich may be one of the most bankable presidential candidates for Republicans, but is he already burning bridges? Newt Gingrich said about Paul Ryan's proposal: "I think that that is too big a jump. I think what you want to have is a system where people voluntarily migrate to better outcomes, better solutions... I'm against Obamacare, which is imposing radical change, and I would be against a conservative imposing radical change." The reaction, says Takeaway Washington correspondent, Todd Zwillich was swift and heavy, with conservatives saying Gingrich undermined House Republicans.
