Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared on „The Ingraham Angle“ on Tuesday night, where he blasted moderate Senate Republicans for going along with the Democrats’ plans for a massive infrastructure bill. Seventeen Senate Republicans recently sided with the Democrats on a procedural vote to allow the bill to be debated on the Senate floor.
