And let's talk politics Democrats in Washington continue to call for higher taxes on America's top earners but.
What that tax loss if He was applied in college campuses what America's best students.
Had to re distribute their GPA.
You don't want kind of telling emulating the federal tax speculate -- we expect great things.
I do give GPA points since then don't deserve it.
I worked for what I have -- your profile.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well that video has gone viral and is offering a reality check to liberals on college campuses the young man asking the questions that video is Oliver -- sees -- -- strategy co-founder of exposing.
Leftists dot com and he's my guest this morning good morning to brighten early Oliver.
Good morning thank you for -- this morning are -- to come up for the idea of this video -- -- have to say it's it's it's very interesting to see when you just.
Push that whole argument to something else that people earning.
-- early -- like it's so much.
Now you know they did alike and will basically we did was we knew and we do know that a lot of -- didn't support them redistribution of wealth.
And so what we thought we'd do is out break that on to terms that they can relate to and they all earn their GPA and so we decided last.
They would be interest and every distributing the GPA points that they aren't.
Two students to bomb you know maybe.
We're having trouble.
Getting high GPA or for what not reason and -- ups get game grades in school and it's down the same argument.
As -- distributing wealth you're taking something that someone arms and redistributed to someone -- to someone that did not -- That money or and now this case they grades and students.
We're quick to support redistributing wealth than not so quick to support redistributing something that they had to -- -- hit closer to home.
Right so so but did all of the students that you talked to have that reaction.
Where they where they all said -- and that's not the same thing or I don't like that idea did anyone say all wallet -- think about that.
You know a few people did want to think about it but I don't think there.
In a GP it was just had to Begin with everyone that had a but you GPA and you see if four point -- students in there and they do not want to give any of it -- then iconic countered back with the typical liberal argument was not selfish aren't you.
You know -- -- hiding all that you know GPA points or whatnot and and they -- -- -- argument TV selfish they'd come.
Said it was different than incumbent.
None of these students to provide any.
On the contrary your valid reasons as to how they were different they'd -- just kind of said it was different and you can see in the video and kind of clueless.
When there are confined within.
Red -- so what is so some people who have gone to this video to watch it now what has been the reaction if they posted comments to you.
You know there have been thousands of comments now posted and think the video has -- 200000 hits on YouTube on this -- -- particular so there have been a lot of email that we've been getting a lot of people love the the parallel between GPA and income some since still.
Felt that they were deaf friend and I don't think there's much that we can do to convince some that you know it's a good parallel to.
Seeing the same philosophy apply to different and out different things right condition collect those same students and a couple years when throughout the real workforce to see.
If their thoughts for the saying -- maybe they've changed Oliver -- the recent college grad who filmed that video thanks so much for your time this morning.
Think you very much for having me.
