Steve King: the chart that scared the american people and mobilized them to ring the phones off the hook then and to run ads and raise the resistance because they did not want to have a government-run plan that t away their freedom. that's hillary care. this is obamacare. if you hated hillary care, you

Steve King

Steve King: then in there wasn't freedom of speech on the part of members of congress. i will bet that this chart went into all kinds of envelopes and got spread all the way across america and people opened it up and stuck it on the magnetsn the refrigerator and thought what are they doing in washington, d.c.? we didn't send them to grow a big government program.

Steve King

3:38:29 to 3:38:49( Edit History Discussion )

Steve King: health insurance. they don't believe in the best health care system of the world. they d believe in censoring, but the american people cannot be be censored. we have internet. we have twitter. we have -- this kind of a chart can be forwarded all over this country. by tomorrow morning it could be in every computer if the american people just decided they wanted to make sure you

Steve King
