We're not once but twice -- public and Todd -- claiming the White House has misquoted him once again.
Two weeks after claims -- congressman says student loans where cancer by the president yesterday the vice president saying.
He compared federal student loans to quote.
The stage three cancer of socialist.
We all realize.
You're spreading socialist and with that.
Which is cancerous.
I'm very long time and -- -- -- taken on a new dimension.
Part of what the congress -- -- of all of that and this latest statement -- as of right now congress until we give your do.
Well you know the administration's persistence and -- quoting what I said.
Once again underlines the fact that they're great at attacking people but lousy and attacking problem what is -- president explain what you said.
Bye -- quote was a stage three cancer socialism.
I said that America's threatened by that -- -- -- -- -- -- it all kinds of stuff and has no business tampering and that seems very clear exactly right very clear to me that's exactly right out.
And so essentially what they're doing is attacking got -- person but they can't attack a problem because they only got one solution and that's more government and bored bored bored debt.
And not you know it isn't that good enough just take over 16 of the economy -- Obama here now they're gonna chase out the private -- -- Out of the this student loan business and create the Freddie and Fannie.
Of student loans.
But do you have any that's a strong language like that and I -- you're saying because you're arguing that we keep going like this it will.
It will -- says it will kill laws -- -- can't exist at the rate they're going all right isn't quite well what you're -- That you use words that were so inflammatory you would -- bulls expect Joseph Biden.
Where the president for that matter to pick up on and the president has done in the past would not -- but other.
That you you would have hurt your cause with that Woody's.
Well I don't think it hurts the cause if you take a look at where the federal budget is worried one big mess and -- -- a mess because of the fact that the president all he wants to do.
As to take things over and spend more money that we don't have.
Are the harder taxpayers' money.
And -- That's a pretty serious problem when the entire federal.
All of federal functions of the government that we think of is normally what the federal government does.
Is all being financed by debt that's a pretty serious problem I think it is staged three socialism of cancer.
And when we get addicted.
That everything has to be done by the government.
The money is not gonna work and the whole system's gonna come down so I feel strongly about and anybody who takes a good look.
It where the numbers are like I do in the Budget Committee this is pretty serious stuff.
So now you've Monica's got Joseph Biden on you know all right congressman thank you very very much.
Place to join you.
