The Honorable Newt Gingrich

3110 Maple Drive

Atlanta, GA 30305-2650

Dear Speaker Gingrich:

I have seen you refer to the privatized Social Security system in Chile several times as a model for the United States. I believe that you would not hold this view if you were more aware of the details of the Chilean system.

2. Maybe He Wants us to be "chili" (LOL)

I call these guys: 2 Dicks with a Newt in a Mitt! But, I forgot about Ron Paul! And with his son in the House now, he could sneak up from behind the 2 Dicks! Well, after Santorum said today that females in Combat would make the men protect them rather than do their job! What a flake! He's obviously never served, as a retiree and a female..it isn't that way at all! Maybe instead of making kids and going to college he should've served his Country!! Gingrich got a big bite of cash for filing to help the Federal Housing Corps (Freddie and Fannie); so the writing is on the wall...Chilean! Look what happened to USPS by privitizing. Of course it took 30 years, but it's happening!!
