10. Dean did side with Gingrich.
Here's an excerpt from a Dallas newspaper. It was at a time when Gephardt was trying to stop Gingrich and the Repubs from cutting Medicare and Dean sided with Newt instead of him, which is why he's the one to bring it up.

The cuts Dean described reducing the rate of growth to 7 percent was exactly what Newt Gingrichs budget proposed. This would cut between $256 and $282 billion from Medicare: Under the House and Senate plans, the annual rate of growth of Medicare spending would be cut from 10 percent to 7 percent The Republicans say these changes would trim as much as $282 billion from Medicare.
