-- unions like yours make sure that everybody had a perfect.
-- -- Had a fair shot.
You help build the greatest middle class but we've ever so you believe that prosperity.
Should be reserved just for a privileged few.
Well President Obama -- it is today as he wraps up his -- -- again -- but unions so far are not backing all Democrats.
Just says my next guest Pennsylvania congress today Saddam are losing his primary last week.
And unions helped knock it now because he didn't supported the president's health care law last year.
She joins a right now well let's just fine thank you for for don't try to look after the -- money won't what did you make of that.
Look I represented my district I know the vote that I cast was the vote that my constituents want it.
It's an unusual circumstance we just did redistricting in Pennsylvania I won 70% of the vote.
With the constituents that I still have remaining in the districts in the unions were successful.
In that carrying the message that you just described in the other part of the district but I know what made the right to vote and if I lost my seat over as I know what's the right thing to do.
The irony congress -- is that -- made a lot of union friendly decisions working man -- woman died decisions this health -- law notwithstanding so I always wonder when unions get what they wish today regret.
What they -- -- because in the and on you know is this could be a district that ends up going Republican.
I tried on every vote that I cast to cast the vote that was in the best interest of my district in what my constituents wanted -- to do.
Along with my own independent judgment trying to learn as much about the issues I did the best I could.
And as you said I did vote with the unions -- -- a lot of occasions the one that they remember is the health -- vote we have a different opinion on that.
We've had an election and then they made a different decision but again I know I made the right choice moving forward and we'll see what happens from here on out.
But what's on your congressman is.
Unions criticized Tea Party here is for holding their candidates to sort of a litmus test on.
Were you -- stimulus -- against did did you -- more spending or did you not and they said that that was a mistake to hold any -- -- that single type division.
Yet here we are you getting -- out on your Fannie because of the single issue.
Me thinks some hypocrites about.
While both sides still you know you had Chris you're you know you're right and Sharon angle in the last.
Though the last 2010 elections.
That that appears to be -- what's happening across the country are on both sides again and what you're gonna end up with is a more polarized congress and I don't think that's in the best interest of the country.
And I know in districts like this.
It's gonna be something that that Democrats and Republicans are gonna have to come to terms with when you have people on both sides of the issue.
Sometimes -- gonna have to take a stand for your district that might be contradictory to what the party would want you to do.
Well I think.
You wanna ask -- -- honorable ones in there -- is amazing to me but it is what it is congressman very good seeing you again Q well thank you -- I appreciate it.
