Akin: President Obama misquoted me

Congressman Todd Akin, a candidate for the U. S. Senate, claims that despite what President Obama says, he never said students loans are a cancer. Akin clarifies that he only means that the government helping students and poor people who need health care are a cancer.

Thanks for clearing that up, Congressman. The news release is printed below:

“With all due respect, the President misquoted me.  I was not saying that student loans are a cancer.  I referred to the policies where there is a government takeover of private industries.
“This is most evident in the government takeover of U.S. healthcare, the government takeover of student loans and the government’s attempts to shut down U.S. energy.
“I suspect the President was given a misquotation of what I actually said, but I am sure we have a fundamental disagreement on the role of government and what constitutes socialism regarding current public policy.”
