<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> This complete video, once on YouTube and then on the Talking Points Memo website, has been yanked from both, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>simply because of the heat a rookie republican congressman (and former reality tv star) got for daring to mention he's having trouble getting by on "only" $174,000, partly due to higher health care costs because of worse federal coverage than he was used to from Wisconsin as a District Attorney.</span></div></div>

Watch it here while you still can. link (http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/scarce/video-wisconsin-gop-doesnt-want-you-see-gas)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> In the clip, Duffy is asked whether he'd support cutting his own salary. Duffy says he would, but only as part of a plan where all public employees' salaries would be cut. He then said that the $174,000 in salary (not including benefits) he receives is a squeeze for his family of seven to live on:

"I can guarantee you, or most of you, I guarantee that I have more debt than all of you. With 6 kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I'm living high on the hog, I've got one paycheck. So I struggle to meet my bills right now. Would it be easier for me if I get more paychecks? Maybe, but at this point I'm not living high on the hog."

No doubt Crooks and Liars will receive a similarly sternly worded cease-and-desist letter, and the clip will be pulled from here also. But for now, here is the clip the Wisconsin GOP are so scared of being seen. (Can this story get any more pathetic?) </div></div>

Shared sacrifice...?

A perfect example of a picture being worth a thousand words, your clip, and the clip of Bush, after he shook the hand of the Haiti native, rubbing his hand off on Clinton's shirt, behind Clinton's back, no less.

Both clips present perfect examples of who Republicans really are...
