Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight does a Democratic Party hate the rich that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
Talking points is a regular guy I think most of you watch a factor often know that sometimes have been accused of being a bit -- regular.
Growing up on Long Island my folks didn't have very much we didn't have air conditioning never bought a new car ate spaghetti -- and tuna.
But never once never once did my parents showed jealousy toward the rich people living Garden City a few miles away.
I never heard any of that I heard save your money and don't order an appetizer.
That's what I heard.
But America fifty years later is a far different place now we have class envy that is being stoked by the Democratic Party.
Ironically the media's part of the anti affluent Jihad while many in the media.
Are wealthy themselves -- and how -- -- got he's been has thrown around supporting the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
We've given -- a chance some of those occupiers would burn their Hollywood mansion to the ground.
The new Gallup poll last very simple question do you think the US benefits from having a class of rich people or not.
Say yes rich folks who OK with 34% of Americans believe the opposite however when you break it down by party.
Of Democrats believe wealthy Americans provide no benefit to the country whatsoever.
I take that very personally because I your humble correspondent against all odds.
Had become a rich guy.
And -- exactly what I do from my country.
I pay all my taxes I have no offshore accounts and everything -- government wants my accountant swiftly.
Is under orders to -- My foundation named after my parents gives away millions of dollars to the poor to military families in need and to fight disease worldwide.
I employed dozens of people the O'Reilly dot com is mine small business.
In addition because of factors successful people are hired by the News Corp.
to work -- program.
Also because I worked very hard I employed people in my house and you do other things that I can't do.
Recently I thought about retiring but I edited up in more than sixty people.
-- lost their jobs had I packed it in.
So now I hear that almost half of the Democratic Party believe I provide no benefit at all -- America.
Off the -- don't so let's say what I'm gonna do.
I'm gonna write a letter to President Obama.
To publicly acknowledge my contribution.
To the USA in his next press conference I want the president to open what up with.
I just watch all the Norwood Bill O'Reilly is doing for the country.
My asking too much in my maligning.
Bottom line jealous to enhance hurt the country I and others like me I help them.
Announcement -- top story tonight reaction joining us from Boston Marianne marsh.
-- a Washington here's empowers both -- stalwart members.
Of the Democratic Party.
-- -- the issue you would Marianne both of you scold the Democrats.
What demonizing the rich in this fall.
Well I don't think they're demonizing the rich actually I think that day first of all 52%.
Democrats actually do think we should have a class -- rich people what I did I disagree wet.
But I think -- that issue is the class.
That we aren't supposed to have classes in this country is you know this country was founded on the idea of equality and not having an aristocracy in different classes of people living radically different wise so.
I think that that question for me is why so many Republicans think that we should have a rich class.
Smokers he made so many mistakes in that -- opening monologue I can't always guarantee.
I just want to point out that people -- John Adams and and Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were all members of the moneyed class and live a lot differently than.
All the other colonists who were running around trying to gross stuff to lip and secondly you say that the Democrats aren't demonizing.
The key question is do you think the United States benefits from having a class -- rich people or not.
And thirty and 42%.
46% of Democrats say well there's no benefit from Marianne from people like me not.
All right so I think kind of moved to coast a region just give out everybody's what.
No it wouldn't want that to happen could hear it let's change yeah.
-- all anybody beside him.
-- And I I.
But here's what's changed -- I mean the majority of people including Democrats still want to be rich what they've seen changes their ability to move up the economic ladder by working hard and playing by -- -- -- I heard this place I hear in his propaganda all day long.
My father and a diet is propaganda my father worked very hard.
And he came back from World War II when he had a college friendly he got nowhere Marianne nowhere.
Why why because he didn't take enough chances he was scared because he was a depression kid he got nowhere.
And 90% -- better than my neighborhood.
And 90% of the people in South Boston in Dorchester.
And 90% of the people in the working suburbs above Washington are not gonna do would either they live good lives my father had a good life.
But he didn't -- classes I'm the first one.
A deal Riley Kennedy McLaughlin is that's my family.
Since the famine in the 1840s.
I'm the only one -- Who's got out of that middle class working class the only one so don't tell me it's stacked now it's always been stacked.
Your Norris facts I'll start.
Yeah but here's the difference spells I'm sorry going to the last since the eighties in particular here's the difference we now have an economy that rewards those who least needed at the expense of those who can least afford it -- -- -- when and how might be rewarded by the economy how.
I'm not pointing at you -- do because I hate you cross your points about me I don't know not well.
I'm a guy that's 46%.
Of of the people we Pearson is sticking up form -- and I can't say I'm when I'm -- I don't benefit at all to this country.
I'm running I'm -- -- yeah.
At a mirror.
No that's not what -- -- it doesn't have the right thing you know benefit it doesn't mean that windows has it -- guys know it's -- not know it does not save it ain't rich person does not -- do you think the united synergy benefits from having.
Crowds of rich people I am so glad he's all.
Okay but there's a difference because I I do have an issue with the idea of having a class the rich people don't look at age eighty he's not a class like we have like we goal and we had -- together he's just good.
It's time by how much money you make and that is it every -- All over the world -- pay your bill but except it is kind of like that because what is happening is that people who lived.
In the world of certain upper Echelon we have such radically different lives on the rest of the country I had -- although they have not that I truly zero I don't know you.
Am I staring us.
I think it is so different now and it really is such a disconnect and what what is what this is focusing not gonna ask you are you concerned about income inequality at all into an -- turn yellow call.
-- I'm concerned about the economy stinks.
Because the federal government is boxed it now -- a year out of the way.
And let people look at develop small business to be more jobs and then you have more income that's what I'm concerned about it -- anybody can -- and -- ticking up not as though I didn't hear anything you -- It's not anybody giving you anything that's a question of whether or not there is such a disparity between the increase is you have against Canada last stagnating just going like this and you have a very upper class just.
Getting the bulk of all of the benefits of this country I'm not bunny Mellon OK I'm.
Anything I work for it and GAAP.
If you put if you make it big in the major leagues you get paid if his football baseball -- TV.
Marianne as last word go I think the Democratic Party should be ashamed of itself for 46% of it saying guys like me do nothing for the -- that's it shameful.
-- a -- missing the point here this is more about the shrinking middle class who aren't getting the opportunities by the rules we used to play by when you look at folks like Romney -- go away and these guys went to that steel -- work hard every day he walked out with millions of dollars number one number to go back to the Clinton tax cuts.
That created 22 million jobs we have 23 million people unemployed problem itself.
Could erase the deficit from bush 41 and left it 240 billion dollar surplus this is not tough but that's all that have to happen I don't know just remember -- -- when you've got -- -- -- -- -- -- you have yet you have a democratic congress both the senate -- house and a democratic president data -- store -- yes.
Our ladies thanks very much and -- a rundown.
