Gingrich made a total ass of himself demonstrating how he completely misunderstands Orwell and '1984' in attempt to discredit universal healthcare.

So that there is no doubt about Orwell's political leanings:

"And the only regime which, in the long run, will dare to permit freedom of speech is a Socialist regime."

"One has got to be actively a Socialist, not merely sympathetic to Socialism, or one plays into the hands of our always-active enemies."

George Orwell.
