After last Wednesday’s Million Student March demonstrations on college campuses across the country, Fox News host Neil Cavuto invited student organizer Darletta Scruggs on his show to discuss the main points of the actions, which are free college, cancellation of student loan debt, mandatory $15 minimum hourly wage for all campus workers, and divestment from private prisons by all colleges and universities. While Cavuto attempted to over talk Scruggs and redirect the conversation to straw man topics like tax increases and international affairs, Ms. Scruggs stayed on topic and literally schooled him on why free college should be a priority right now.

Fox News Contributor: Welfare and Food Stamps Make Poverty Feel ‘A Little Comfortable’

During an appearance on Fox News’ “Cavuto on Business,” contributor Charles Payne asserted that programs like welfare and food stamps can make poverty feel “a little comfortable.”

From the Huffington Post:

“There’s this idea that between the food stamps and the welfare and the earned income tax credit and the child tax credit and the local programs, you know, it gets a little comfortable to be in poverty,” Payne said during a discussion on food stamp usage.
