Conservative economist, “We need to raise taxes.” Fox Host, “You’re a Communist.”

November 17, 2012

Greg Gutfeld of Fox News interviewed Conservative economist Ben Stein yesterday, and when the host didn’t get the answer he wanted, he deemed Stein as a “Communist.”

Congress right now can pass a law which would prevent a tax hike on the first $250,000 of anyone’s income, but Republicans are obstructing anything that doesn’t protect the wealthiest, so it’s rather telling when one of their own asks a Fox News host, why he would care if taxes went up on the rich. Gutfeld responds that he lives in a basement apartment, obviously inferring that tax cuts for the wealthy would not effect him, but after a two second Google search, it appears that the Fox host is worth $2 million net. That must be one sweet basement flat!
