What can you say about a politician that says he favors “free markets,” but consistently votes to expand government and compete with private businesses? You could say he has a forked tongue. Or you could say he panders for votes with his rhetoric, but reverts to his true character when elected.

However, his voting record paints a completely different story as he consistently votes to support expansion of government and completion with private businesses.
The characters in this humorous video are fictitious; however, they are based on the real life stumblings and bumblings in many small towns, maybe one near you.
