Former New York gubernatorial candidate and founder of the Rent Is Too Damn High party, Jimmy McMillan, appeared on Sean Hannity’s program to push his new national candidacy and explain why more people should vote Republican. McMillan explained that the Democrats controlled Congress for 40 years, and that President Obama’s candidacy was just a “lure” for people to vote Democratic.

Then he unveiled his new campaign slogan: “The Deficit Is Too Damn High.”
