Live from the Old Northwest: John Kasich: "Do you know how crazy this election is?...
...Let me tell you something. I've about had it with these people. Let me tell you why: We have one candidate who says that we ought to abolish Medicaid and Medicare. You ever hear of anything as crazy as that? Telling our people in this country who are seniors, or about to be seniors that we are going to abolish Medicaid and Medicare?
We have one person saying we ought to have a 10% flat tax. That will drive up the deficit in this country by trillions of dollars--that my daughters will spend the rest of their lives paying off. You know what I say to them? I say: Why don't we have no taxes? Just get rid of them all--and then a chicken in every pot on top of it!
We have one guy who says we ought to take 10-11 million people and pick them up, where I don't know. We are going to go into their homes, their apartments. We are going to pick them up, and we are going to take them to the border, and scream at them to get out of our country. Well, that's just crazy. That is just crazy.
We have people proposing health care reform that is going to leave, I believe, millions of people without adequate health insurance.
What has happened to our party?
What has happened to the conservative movement?
