Multimillionaire Sean Hannity says People ought to get a second job as a substitute of accepting authorities help
Over the past few decades, average Americans have fallen behind. Housing and study costs have accelerated rapidly, while wage growth has stagnated relatively. This is especially true during the COVID-19 pandemic. Joe Biden has promised to fill this gap.
And the idea of closing the wage gap is popular with voters of all kinds. But the anchors at Fox News want to convince their viewers that it is better to stay in poverty. During a recent radio spot, Sean Hannity urged listeners to get a second job instead of accepting any government support.
Hannity, who is worth $ 43 million, told viewers, "Socialism will always end this way – with unfulfilled promises, high promises. You – you think it's a great thing. "I don't have to worry about these things anymore. Ah, thank God. Okay, I don't have to worry about getting a college fund for my kids. I don't have to worry about my health care. I even have a state guaranteed retirement – I'll – I'll have a daycare when I have kids, "blah, blah, blah".
The Fox host continued:
"Here's my unsolicited advice to all of you, my wonderful radio family. I can't do this show without you. Rely on the government for nothing. Rely on you. Go out, work hard. Work 2 jobs like my parents . Save as much as possible so that you can make decisions later. "
For the vast majority of Americans, Hannity's advice would be utterly absurd. However, some of his listeners may take his words to heart. The modern GOP would not exist if some of its constituents were unwilling to act against their interests.
