Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin:
DUFFY: I guarantee you, most of you, I guarantee I have more debt than all of you. Six kids. I still pay off my student loans, I still pay off my mortgage, I drive a used minivan. If you think I'm living high on the hog. I got one paycheck. I struggle to meet my bills right now. Would it be easier to me if I got more paychecks? Maybe. But, uh, at this point, I'm not living high on the hog. I have no problem... you know what. I think we should all take a step back and go, 'can everyone do more with less?' Absolutely.

Yes siree, that one paycheck and a modest quarter-million dollar vacation home can really drag a poor feller off his high horse when he's just barely doing the best he can to keep from being stepped on and eaten by the greasy hog.

Pick up some tips on how to get high on the fancy pants multi-millionaire international celebrity playboy hog while simultaneously carting your narcissistic triad around in a chauffeur driven minivan and bankrupting everything you can grab a hold of in the greasy hog chase.
