GO GET EM, BUDDY.

FOLK, SWIMSUIT SEASON IS

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER AND

THERE'S ONE PLACE I ALWAYS

TURN FOR MY FITNESS TIPS,

THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

(LAUGHTER)

JUST CHECK OUT THIS MONTH'S

ISSUE OF THE VERY NOT GAY

MEN'S HEALTH MAGAZINE.

THAT'S ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN

AARON SCHOCH SHOWING OFF HIS

SIX-PACK ABS.

AND IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY YOU

CAN ALSO SEE HIS PATHWAY TO

PROSPERITY.

(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: NOW CONGRESSMAN

SCHOCH IS PARTNERING WITH

MEN'S HEALTH TO PROMOTE A

FITNESS INITIATIVE CALLED

THE FIT FOR LIFE SUMMER

CHALLENGE ENCOURAGING ALL

AMERICANS TO GET FIT FOR

LIFE UNTIL SEPTEMBER.

THEN WE TURN BACK INTO-- THEN

WE TURN BACK INTO ALFREDO-BASED

LIFE FORMS.

I APPLAUD CONGRESSMAN SCHOCH

FOR USING THE POWER OF HIS

OFFICE TO RAISE AWARENESS OF

JUST HOW RIPPED HE IS.

OF COURSE THIS ISN'T THE

FIRST TIME I LAID EYES ON

AARON SCHOCH.

I SPOKE WITH THE FULLY

CLOTHED CONGRESSMAN BACK IN

2009.

WHAT'S THE FIGHTING 18th.

>> Stephen: DO YOU NOT

REPRESENT THE 18th DISTRICT

OF ILLINOIS.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: TELL ME ABOUT

THE FIGHTING 18th.

>> YOU MEAN LIKE TELL YOU

ABOUT MY DISTRICT.

>> Stephen: SOUNDS BETTER TO

SAY FIGHTING 18th.

>> IT'S A 20 COUNTY DISTRICT,

HOME TO 161 TOWNS.

>> Stephen: FAIR WARNING,

I'M ALREADY BORED.

>> WELL, I THINK A LOT OF

REMARKABLE THINGS HAPPEN IN

PER ORIA JUST AS A LOT OF

REMARKABLE THINGS HAPPEN

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

>> Stephen: YOU'RE THE

YOUNGEST MEMBER OF CONGRESS.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: IS THERE A

HAZING PROCESS?

>> NO, NOT REALLY, YOU KNOW,

THERE'S NO SPANKING MACHINE,.

>> NO SPANKING MACHINE IN

CONGRESS.

>> Stephen: NO NICK NAMES.

>> NO NICK NAMES.

>> Stephen: SCHOCHMAN,

SCHOCH MEISTER, ANYTHING

LIKE THAT.

>> NO.

>> Stephen: SCHOCH JOCK, THE

SCHOCHER!

YOU SHOULD GET ONE, STAND

OUT FROM THE CROWD.

>> I'LL TAKE YOUR WORD FOR

THAT.

>> Stephen: YOU HAVE BEEN

CALLED THE BRODY GENERAL OF

CONGRESS.

>> BY TMZ.

>> Stephen: I HAVE ALSO

LEARNED FROM TMZ THAT YOU

HAVE SIX PACK ABS, IS THERE

ANY TRUTH TO THAT.

>> WELL.

>> Stephen: IT IS A SIMP EL

QUESTION.

DO YOU OR DO YOU NOT.

>> AS SOON AS I SAY THAT AND

THEN I GET OUT OF SHAPE

YOU'RE GOING TO USE IT

AGAINST ME SO YOU KNOW.

>> Stephen: YOU'RE IMPLYING

THAT I AM SO TAKEN WITH YOU

RIGHT NOW, THAT I AM-- AM UP

SET, YOU'RE IMPLYING THAT I

WILL STAY OBSESSED WITH YOUR

ABS.

AND YES, I'M NOT SAYING

THERE IS NO CHEMISTRY HERE.

BUT I'M SAYING I'M KEEPING

I WISH YOU WOULD DO THE SAME,

RIGHT.

>> Stephen: DOW BELIEVE

BARACK OBAMA WAS BORN IN THE

UNITED STATES.

OF BEING IN PUBLIC SERVICE

SOME THINGS ABOUT YOU.

OF THINGS ABOUT YOU.

THEY SAY ABOUT YOU THAT I'M

HESITANT TO BRING UP AND I

WONDER IF YOU WANT TO

RESPOND.

(LAUGHTER)

PRO-LIFE AND PRO GUN.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: WHERE DO YOU

FIND THE COURAGE TO SWIM

AGAINST THE TIDE LIKE THAT.

>> WELL, THE CONSTITUTION

PROTECTS INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS

IN LIFE.

BEING PRO-LIFE MEANS I

BELIEVE IN THE SANCTITY OF

HUMAN LIFE AND PROTECTING

THE UNBORN AND I THINK

THAT'S STILL IN CONCERT WITH

THE SECOND AMENDMENT OF THE

CONSTITUTION WHICH IS THE

RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS.

>> WHAT ABOUT FETUSES WITH

GUNS.

IF I CAN JUST INTERRUPT

YOUR -- FOR A MOMENT.

ARE FETUSES LIVING HUMANS?

>> I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT

RELATES TO-- .

>> Stephen: ARE THEY BY

DEFINITION ALIVE?

>> YES.

>> Stephen: SHOULD THEY HAVE

THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS?

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> Stephen: THANK YOU.

SO FEW POLITICIANS ARE

WILLING TO SAY THAT.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> Stephen: DOW HAVE SIX

PACK ABS.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: CONGRESSMAN,

THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME

TO TALK WITH US.

>> ANY TIME.
