WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 31: Rep. Allen West (R-FL) (C) talks with reporters after meeting with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill March 31, 2011 in Washington, DC. Gingrich met with about 20 freshmen Republican members of Congress and discussed ways to repeal the healthcare reform law, which he calls "Obamacare." With his eye on the 2012 GOP nomination, Gingrich also advised the freshmen to avoid a government shutdown during budget negotiations but to also to hang on to their principles.
