There's about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party who are members of the Communist Party and that then he paused before adding it's called the congressional progressive caucus yes -- -- thing that's not a bad punch line.

So sorry that was that was really rude of me.
You -- -- you'll find it Louis CK it's funnier than Tom -- right everybody is -- at confluence probably one of the funniest people I've ever met and the creepy he's great and I think makes me really nervous and I convinced he has dead bodies.
All over his basement -- don't know now all over.
-- people like that are always like super neat freak yes yes that thing but they always look like they're happy.

For -- -- -- you stay strong thanks.

No I was in in high school my high school teachers and would teach me that -- and I know that I was making -- you -- Yeah they talked about being seen communism and small become into the right that problem and there's a difference -- go home my -- -- -- big state.
Congress passed and I have organized -- -- school classroom like six months -- I don't know if that.
Does a great does a great time because every sentence and did when I was a kid with Carter stinks.
-- I thought it was just one word.
Who's the president elect has voted for him -- -- think that the senator Gregg to ask you did west make a joke but a -- that he too close to home and you answered I do.
It didn't expect that at that I -- -- it -- but -- it buzz isn't really sure what that meant I think she was.
-- -- -- -- -- -- It's a question -- no I was I was just I loved it.
I had these unit yes.
About Greg I -- you wanna make -- about what you think colonel west men.
But if you think he didn't just call -- colleagues Communists.
You know it as interchangeable socialism when it ranks he started -- members of the Communist Party yeah I -- that.
I go back to my war hero theory -- the war hero on your block can say whatever he wants you know it's -- a weird thing.
Now I'm sorry.
-- -- I'm not sorry I don't know enough probably congressional progressive caucus co chairs Keith Ellison and oral -- how -- issued a statement saying quote.
When people like representative west have no ideals are principles they rely on personal attacks we will not engage in -- and childish conversations that lower than.
High level of discourse Americans rightly expect from that representatives.
I'm and they closed it with from each according to his ability to each according to his need help and how I haven't got the hot -- And at that spot anyway I think we can safely say that colonel west he's not going to be Mitt Romney joining me.
-- excuse me did you see any HBO movie game change.
I've -- -- is it game changed really is and -- by saying that.
The is -- it it war heroes yeah absolutely.
He is aiming to okay yeah.
All right time so -- I guess that stint in the army.
Staff changed your heart I guess it did I -- I guess it did how Obama's has Reagan would.
Sport Buffett -- senator you said Warren Buffett's gonna lose some credibility on this because he's taken advantage of every tax loophole in the system.
This -- why did -- do that if you care so much.
Did you wanted to make money if he didn't always have.
Billions of dollars there and I -- -- Warren Buffett would not be a fan of any company that didn't take advantage of tax loopholes -- right it's not my point say he's asking.
All plus you with us -- change -- -- every dime every spare not me after the government.
You think he made it clear he wasn't asking me but he follow well I don't collect money yet there mr.
yet now he was not asking me.
Thought Tommy said the problem here is that Buffett's overpaying -- secretary here's the thing which I've said before.
I wanna see Buffett's tax returns and I -- -- see his secretary's tax returns because until then I have no proof that she paid a higher rate than he did.
Right I think she didn't Andy you're right she may not I don't know they did.
Has anyone -- President Obama had this woman at at his state of the union speech today that this did they check this.

Happy about that -- it's at least eight of the union address I'm GAAP and I think that it's all pretty safe bet we're talking about capital gains for the most part we talk about buffeting which is.
-- is going to be a lower rate.
I agree that if I agree that that's when she probably played paid a higher rate I think this probably the same rates -- that I wanted to give everybody 50%.
