Head to head in Massachusetts and yes it's getting ugly.
No big surprise Gerri Willis host of the Willis report joins us now with more.
How ugly is it well you know I like talking about Elizabeth Warren you -- matter yes she's a woman who gave up with the idea for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau she dropped the original plants in congress with the latter had it.
So she's running for senate in Massachusetts right -- is a woman who loves big government she wants help for people who are being foreclosed upon she wants help for college students who can't pay their bills.
And now she wants help for medical device makers.
In Boston that's right to should remember she's running for office straightened she writes an editorial in obscure medical journal.
Saying that this 2.3 percent excise tax called for by obamacare right it's just not -- just not fair here's what she says when congress takes.
Takes part of it's it's hit the sale of a specific product that too often impact small companies in the industry disproportionate disproportionately she's saying.
If you tax them it's gonna hurt the small companies.
And maybe there's some -- another area finds he's contradicting yourself because on one hand she says we should share everything.
On the other hand don't tax if -- -- in my little constituents who could actually give me money to run for exam I went out and this isn't the first example of politicians can't help helping themselves -- -- mean this kind of right ended.
Behavior 165 freshman sending a letter just this week saying hey we want special dispensation on earmarks OK remember that these -- the people who said.
We wanna agree to a debt ceiling hike because and it's just not part of our religion we wanna save money rather asking for money -- -- New York GO -- is saying.
I -- waiver for one of the companies in my district because they want to import Chinese goods and I want to help them along so.
Everybody's doing somethings that is suspects suspicious and I think it's -- because they're politicians but.
-- that the -- will closest I mean it continue to perpetuate itself helped me in my constituents but you know what don't spend money anywhere else in the country.
And it's taxpayer money we don't care about taxpayer money whatever we want him.
It's not the way the system is set up on -- because it's a -- around money you need money to do everything.
Including to campaigned as you have to outspend your opponents and that's what leads to these types of sort of contradictory situation of this system might like to think it's the people who have something wrong with themselves.
And that they bring their expectation exploit I think it's the main thing.
Exactly we wish to change that you should change that.
You're actually getting reading list every day nearly the congress what it is upstairs job I don't Madonna wants me iron -- -- that is such a disaster what did not -- yeah governor well we're talking about this story we're having a lot of fun tonight -- -- about Jack -- about his new book on personal finance.
