Statements about Bush Administration

When Republicans last controlled the presidency and Congress, "the number of people on food stamps (and) the number of people in low-income housing went through the roof."  

Says U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson "admitted" that Washington, D.C., "changed" him into an insider selling his influence to make millions from powerful special interests.

Since President Barack Obama took office, "you have 1,700 employees just at the Department of Transportation" earning over $170,000.
