“his quotes on student loans and Medicare and Social Security and the like as well.”
What did he say wrong about these?
Well he equated government guaranteed student loans with stage 3 cancer, he has said he doesn't like Social Security and doesn't support it, and seems to have questioned the constitutionality of Medicare. Now his reasoning may have been sound in the three cases: he appears to be mainly concerned with the long term government obligation on student loans, he's for personal savings accounts as a replacement for Social Security, and when he said that the federal government providing medical insurance was unconstitutional he likely meant Obamacare but his position can include Medicare and the VA hospital system as well. But the way he says it, like his quote on rape, generally come out wrong and can easily be misconstrued to mean something else. .
Most things Akin stands for are pretty much solid conservative values. But when he starts talking that link between his mouth and his brain disconnects and he gives McCaskill a whole new set of sound bites.
