-- Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight Mitt Romney the truth and the folks that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
So now we have a controversy over governor Romney telling supporters.
That a large portion of the American population is dependent on government.
And most likely will not vote for him.
Is my question.
Why is that controversial that's true.
-- said that back in May at a fund raiser in Florida where he was secretly.
-- -- -- -- There yeah.
Okay here that.
Table here -- -- how good these days.
That he favors.
Possibility you're a lot of.
Now I believe the governor -- estimates the number I put the percentage of Americans who want a nanny state but about 40%.
My analysis based on a Gallup poll which asked a question which comes closer to your own view the government -- to march in 54% said that.
Should do more are.
Depends four point 5% now you say the federal government should do more social engineering and the Obama administration's currently doing that you want -- nanny state.
If you want a nanny state you're not gonna vote for Romney who's a big self reliance got.
So again what on earth is the controversy.
If I'm governor Ronnie -- -- what this all day long and I have the stats to back my position up.
Right now the federal -- governments are spending nearly a trillion dollars a year on means tested entitlements those opinions other then.
Social security and Medicare more than 46 million Americans are now receiving food -- that's a record.
Nearly nine million Americans are now on federal disability another record.
And more than 100 million Americans 35% of the population.
Living in a house or receiving some kind of welfare.
Thomas sitting mayor governor Romney wants to stop the madness and get people back to work so -- -- their own bills I'm assuming that's what he wants to do.
So Romney should be pointing a finger.
-- finger error.
-- President Obama.
Saying he wants a welfare state the president does.
And he's well on a way to creating -- because that's what -- stats show.
This is so painful this is so crazy I should say it's painful.
Did you know did you know that last week.
The Fed pumped about -- -- three billion dollars into the banking system.
Just throw it out there in the marketplace.
Flooding -- -- with dollars hoping they will be loaned out by American backs.
That's -- it's all in danger the more dollars that are in circulation.
The less the currency we have and our wallet and our bank is worth.
That's why OPEC Jack up oil prices.
To keep their profits steady.
So while we have a lending light practice.
Brain over Romney being insensitive or -- thing.
The man is telling -- absolute truth.
The US government is broke.
The feds -- borrowing heavily 3.5.
Billion every today.
And now they're manipulating the dollar in order to pay the bills.
That's economically insane.
All Americans should wise up if you're on the dole other people have to pick up your -- And right now there aren't enough other people to do that.
That's why the country as -- sixteen trillion dollar debt.
