Lawmaker Claims FDR Used Stalin as a Model

In a speech on the House floor, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) blasted "this big welfare system in this country" saying it started with President Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who "both had socialist beliefs."

Said Broun: "In fact, Franklin Delano Roosevelt sent his advisers, his close-held friends, his cabinet people to go visit with Stalin in communist Russia to study what he was doing, what Stalin was doing there so that FDR could replicate it here in the United States. And he did everything that he possibly could to do so."
