President Obama’s second cousin is a Tea Party guy from Kansas and it is now official: The Brody File has leaned that he’s running to be a U.S. Senator.
He is going to take on sitting Sen. Pat Roberts, who is 77 years old and has been in the Upper Chamber for more than 15 years. The official announcement will be later today.
Milton Wolf is President Barack Obama’s second cousin because his mother's cousin was also Obama's grandmother. Wolf is a Kansas radiologist who is also a columnist for The Washington Times. He wants to stop liberals like his cousin Barack from turning America into a “second-rate, European-style social welfare state.”
Here are some of Wolf’s past quotes:
“The reality is that whenever the Democrats have needed Republican votes to pass their agenda of growing government, they know that they have been able to count on Pat Roberts.”
“Tax increases, debt ceiling increases, expanding government healthcare… There are some people in this world who are stuck playing checkers when everyone else has moved on to chess. America is in trouble; we have moved on to three-dimensional chess and we are still looking at somebody who is voting for tax increases, voting for debt ceiling increases, voting for increased food-stamp spending, for increased regulations. I don’t know that America can survive that much longer.”
“My first goal is to save the Republican party from itself. My second goal is to save America from the Democrats. I love my party and have been loyal to it and it’s more difficult when my party is no longer to the ideals it proclaims… I oppose Obamacare not just because it is an economic disaster — it is an economic disaster — I oppose Obamacare because it is immoral. It is immoral for a government to get in between a doctor and a patient. It is immoral for a government to even know about a doctor-patient relationship. It is immoral for a government to decide who shall live and who shall die. And that’s what government health care does.”
Move over Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. If Milton Wolf can pull off the upset, you’ll have another Tea Party member up on the Hill.
