Any unresolved problem segment tonight telling the truth in politics.
As you know the rhetoric in this election cycle has already gotten heated here's the very latest from White House senior advisor David -- Their campaign.
Is built on a tripod applies.
A welfare attack that is just absolutely untrue.
The suggests more raiding Medicare actually untrue and then this whole we can't build it nonsense I don't think we -- -- a presidential campaign ever.
That's built on a foundation of absolute lines and I think ultimately they're gonna pay a price for it.
Joining us now to react from Salt Lake City the mayor of Saratoga Springs Utah and RNC break -- star meal love who is running for congress.
-- great to see you had such a star turn it I think RNC last week's there's this wonderful to have you here.
Well think -- I'm happy to be here are right well let's start with about what we just heard there from David plots because seems to me there's a lot of projection.
Going on -- There are all accusing team Romney of lying when it seems that all -- Obama does is -- So let's go through the David plus comment one by one and I'll let you address each one of his charges.
First is the Grammy welfare -- which she talked about and and the Obama campaign has been going wild on that but the truth -- That the Obama administration.
Changed the legal framework.
Of welfare to actually allow the work we -- requirement to be stripped.
Well it's interesting because what -- policy did was incentivize.
Bad behavior and punish good behavior.
Somehow it's not okay they remove the -- some people would actually go out and work.
And and not lose everything and what we're doing is where it crippling Americans and saying we're not going to we're gonna hit just hand your paycheck and we're not -- you -- have to do anything about it.
And -- also fits right into Obama strategy which she is carried out of the last three and a half years.
Of making as many people as possible dependent on government right.
Well we spent 900 billion dollars on poverty programs -- supposed to and poverty.
But it continues to grow and grow and grow which tells -- it's not working this president would rather rate hit six that's.
On how much money he's digging out -- actually rating hit six that's on how many people how many people actually need those programs.
So this is in the modern Democratic Party -- really is a colts a victim hood and dependency.
And by stripping out the work requirement even though they argue that's not the case but actually when you look at the change in the HHS.
A mandate they came out of this administration a couple of months ago that's exactly what it does.
It creeds victim hood and it perpetuates dependency.
It certainly not the America I -- the America I know is grounded.
-- hard workers people who have been able to come here.
And a blood could been born here who have IDS and are able to go out and and make a life for themselves and -- -- for their children.
And I think that he stripping away the American dream in the America as we know it.
Our in his second charge and that clip neo was about raiding Medicare and he claims a team Romney.
Is -- also -- -- -- they say no we have no intention of raiding Medicare that's not what we're doing.
Well dropping 716.
Billion dollars at least from Medicare to pay for Obama parent that looks like a -- to me.
Neither absolute back.
I think it's interesting that we are in a race where -- president would say by the way these are my policies and you're not allowed to talk about the because it hurts me.
I mean I think it's -- ridiculous the fact is he did take money out of and Medicare to -- for obamacare and we're just pointing out those -- because I think that.
Parents that my parents need to know.
And senior citizens everywhere need to know are those who are -- award receiving benefits and Medicare should know about it.
Absolutely and that's why we're educating the American people about the truth about what Obama has done quite and the third saying that David Plouffe said there and that clip.
Neo was he he called it nonsense when it when other Republicans and regular Americans.
Are talking about Obama's own comment about -- and build that David plus dismisses that -- nonsense.
But you didn't know that those -- Obama's own words number one and number two.
That's been Obama's lifelong.
Philosophy it's also been the way he is governed for the last arena.
Well President Obama should really go look for that person that was impersonating him when he was talking about -- because.
I did absolutely ridiculous we saw him say that we -- you did build that Ed.
You don't just let you know there was eight survey that came out of small businesses and they support Romney 61%.
To Obama 26%.
Obviously it's hurting him obviously the American people are -- they see what's happening and they're saying we're not going allow you to do this anymore.
Which is why races in this day and all over are so important.
I mean we are we're looking at two million dollars of attack ads coming up against me people who support Mitt Romney people who support small businesses.
To keep us out and we're going to make a strong statement that we're not going to allow the left to -- by this race and I hope everyone.
We'll go to look for you talk dot com and donate to that to the campaign.
And final question for you you are the mayor of Saratoga Springs -- and I know that you guys had some very serious mud slime and how's everybody doing everything under control there.
I have to tell you so many homes were affected.
But the best thing that I've seen is 5000 volunteers go and work really hard and get these people back on their feet.
We do have a Blogspot Saratoga Springs.
Relief blood dot blogs dot.
Hot spot and I want people to does go and donate if they can't at Saratoga Springs relief.
