Co-host Steve Doocy summarizes his thoughts:
Here’s the thing that really bothers me about this, I made my final two college tuition payments about two weeks ago!
If you want to go to college, you can get a part-time job and make that tuition payment even without a loan, which is available to you, and even without grants.
Not much on Fox surprises me. I’m not sure why, but this surprised me. Sure, it’s pretty callous and pretty ignorant, but they usually pretend to have the answers for poverty. They usually pretend that their self-serving agendas are really benefiting the poor. This is sort of a refreshing, heartless, self-serving honesty.
An old church friend just said to me a couple of days ago that Democrats just want to keep poor people poor and dependent upon the government? REALLY?? Yeah, that’s exactly why we would promote free college, because we don’t want people to be able to get better paying jobs and get themselves off of food stamps and welfare. Our free college proposal is an evil attempt to make sure you never rise higher than McDonald’s fry cook. How did you see through us so easily?
Hey, we all know there are plenty of people who think
You know, I’m pretty well off, I have enough money, I don’t need your help, I’m self-sufficient, and I really don’t care about anyone else.
You’re poor? You’re a single mom? You’re disabled?
Sorry about your luck, but not my problem. I don’t want you getting food and housing assistance, I don’t want you getting education assistance. I really don’t care if you live in alleys and eat out of dumpsters. You aren’t my concern. Every man for himself, that’s my motto.
If that’s how you feel — fine — just say it. Don’t pretend to care about the poor and then stab them in the back in the voting booth or the legislative chambers.
At least these three came close to that sort of brutal honesty — but they didn’t quite get there, did they?
