Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly engaged in a highly-entertaining and thoughtful debate last night. And while many solid points were made (as well as some false equivalencies from a certain party), the following quote by Jon Stewart stands out as perhaps the most important of the night:
"Why is it that if you take advantage of a corporate tax break you're a smart businessman, but if you take advantage of something so you don't go hungry, you're a moocher?
While O'Reilly stated at one point that "nobody begrudges people who need a safety net," he revealed the true face of mainstream conservative thinking when he said that there is just too much entitlement these days. That people (those who are starving, mind you) just expect too much.
Those poor people expect food and shelter and good health. It's too much!
