Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich rejects a GOP plan to turn Newt Gingrich, MedicareMedicare into a voucher program, Politico reports.

“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering," Gingrich said Sunday on NBC’s "Meet the Press."

Gingrich called the voucher proposal “too big a jump,” and pushed for creating a system that allows people to pick other options than government-run coverage.

Gingrich also showed support for another Republican idea to turn Medicaid into a block grant program for the states.
