JON TAFFER (GUEST): And it is a massive change in attitude, Laura. They are trying to balance, and this is their words, not mine. They are trying to balance "quality of life and work." But you know I think to us, Laura, we worked hard to earn that quality of life. I think that's a lot of the shift is that they're moving the quality of life to today before they have earned it, rather than after they have earned it. It is a powerful shift.



LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): What if we just cut off the unemployment, hunger is a pretty powerful thing. I don't mean physical hunger, because people who truly are in need need help, but people who can work but refuse to work.



TAFFER: I have friends in the military who trains military dogs Laura, and the only feed a military dog at night, because a hungry dog is an obedient dog. Well, if we are not causing people to be hungry to work, then we are providing them with all the meals they need sitting at home.
