While he was Home speaker, the home enacted welfare reform, transferred a capital increases tax trim in 1997, and in 1998 transferred the first well balanced spending budget since 1969. He wedded his third wife, Callista Gingrich, in 2000 and he provides two daughters called Jackie Gingrich Cushman and Kathy Lubbers.
