O'Reilly: Bernie and Hillary Are Promising Americans 'Free Stuff'
In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly said that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are trying to gain points with voters by offering "free stuff."
O'Reilly pointed out that Sanders' plan calls for free Medicare for all Americans, an increase in Social Security payments, guaranteed paid family and medical leave, tuition-free schools at all levels and much more.
"The freebies and programs Sen. Sanders supports would cost the American taxpayer $18 trillion over a decade," O'Reilly said. "Obviously, that's not fiscally possible unless the federal government begins seizing assets, which is certainly in line with the socialist philosophy."
O'Reilly noted that Clinton has seen how popular Sanders' message has been, so she's trying to get on the "free stuff" bandwagon with a proposal for essentially free college tuition.
"The Factor" host pointed out that Jeb Bush was widely criticized for saying the GOP, unlike the Democrats, isn't about giving African Americans "free stuff."
"It is 'free stuff' that the Democratic Party is promising in each and every election," O'Reilly said. "That's what the party stands for these days: Entitlements."
"So, with Hillary Clinton now imitating Bernie Sanders, the country faces a very interesting scenario: Capitalism versus socialism. We'll see what prevails."
