You see, your very network has created the very balanced narrative that ties people's poverty to their own lack of virtue, and says that programs created to serve the impoverished are in fact the reason that those are still impoverished. Sort of the idea being, if they weren't such shitty people, they wouldn't be poor. And those food stamps are just making them shittier.(audience laughter) Of course, you didn't say it so elegantly.
FOX NEWS VOICEOVER (8/9/2013): Food stamp abusers, eating on taxpayers.
FOX NEWS VOICEOVER (7/19/2011): America's poor are actually living the good life.
STEVE DOOCY (10/10/2013):... America's culture of dependency ...
ERIC BOLLING (3/8/2014): Our liberal government is teaching our kids to be takers, instead of makers.
GRETCHEN CARLSON (1/6/2012):... moochers ...
JONATHAN HOENIG (8/7/2013):... parasites ...
MICHAEL REAGAN (10/23/2010):... sucking off, you know, the nipple of the government ...
CHARLES PAYNE (7/5/2012):... freeloading ...
TRACY BYRNES (11/18/2011):... draining this society ...
STUART VARNEY (7/19/2011): 99% of them have a refrigerator.
...My point is this. Congratulations, on finding your food stamp abuse Bigfoot. That one guy you found is certainly not someone that the food stamp program itself would probably point to as its greatest success story. But we make fun of you not for finding him, but for pretending that he somehow represents literally millions of Americans. I know I'm being purposefully hyperbolic.
ERIC BOLLING (2/26/2014): He is this, the representative of literally millions of Americans.
Oh I'm sorry, I meant hyper-Bolling.(audience laughter)
But let's take you at your word. Perhaps you're merely a watchdog for the American people. And like watchdogs, you do occasionally bark at burglars, but mostly just the dishwasher and shadows. For instance, what is the waste, fraud, and abuse in the food stamp program?
ABBY HUNTSMAN (2/4/2014): More than $3 billion dollars has been lost to trafficking, fraud, and overpayments each year.
Well you know what? That ain't nothing. That's a lot. And I imagine you would agree with me that $3 billion dollars is a lot of money.
ERIC BOLLING (2/11/2012): You and I know numbers. I know you know numbers, and I assume you know I know numbers.
Well, OK, you don't have to point at me, but OK, fine. So knowing numbers, and hating waste and fraud as you do, when Democrats were looking to raise a trillion dollars in revenue, in part by ending the very wasteful $4 billion dollars —$4 billion dollars — in taxpayer subsidies that go to already profitable oil companies, you said what?
ERIC BOLLING (2/11/2012): The tax breaks, or the loopholes, or tax credits that you give to oil companies amount to about $4 billion dollars a year. They're a pittance compared to what they were looking for.
(in haughty rich voice) Oooooooohhhhh!!!!!(audience laughter) It's a...$4 billion is a pittance! A pittance for the refrigerator set!(audience laughter)
So what I have learned today from my "teacher" is that $3 billion dollars of taxpayer money is greater than $4 billion dollars in taxpayer money.
Let's see you post Jon Stewart HAMMERING Obama. I can help you with that if you need.
BTW, FOX NEWS is the #1 cable news program. Has been for years and will be for years to come.
I bet you STILL support Obama, too. Right? lololololololololololololololo lol
