Better than Brit Hume and Rachel Maddow: Berkowitz one-on-one w/ 16th CD Cong. Manzullo, Illinois Channel, Cable and Streaming

Jeff Berkowitz: …The short of what you are saying is that you were doing plenty to bring about change?

Cong. Don Manzullo (R-Egan, 16th CD): Oh, my gosh, we were in a leadership position, we kept on…
Cong. Manzullo: But Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, some people looked upon as you can’t touch them…
Jeff Berkowitz; So, on the bill you were voting on on Sep. 29 [2008], what was wrong with that bill [the first bail-out bill]?

Cong. Manzullo: …a Board was set up, but by the time the Board could meet and take a look at the investments, the Secretary of the Treasury could have gone through 700 billion dollars in thirty days
Jeff Berkowitz; …are you 1000 % Pro-Life?

Cong. Manzullo: either you are Pro-Life or you’re not.

Jeff Berkowitz: Would you allow any exceptions? Just for the life of the mother to have an abortion?

Cong. Manzullo: That’s correct. That’s correct.

Jeff Berkowitz: Not for rape or incest?

Cong. Manzullo: No, you’re dealing with a child. It’s a very difficult situation—
