STEPHEN MOORE (GUEST): But I want to make another point that's not economic. But every study shows that people who are working, Neil, are actually happier than people who are not working. And families stay together longer, it's good for the families, it's good for everybody if people are working. And so this idea that people can sit on the sidelines and watch Netflix all day and somehow that's their road to happiness, it isn't. It's bad for America, it's bad for our businesses, and it is bad for -- we need to get the incentives aligned so that people are getting paid for working, not for working. I've talked to people, who have said, look, you know, I'm getting all these benefits right now. Why should I go back to work and be a trucker? Those -- these are tough jobs, a lot of them. 

NEIL CAVUTO (HOST): Indeed they are. And by the way, Netflix isn't their only option. They can always go to Fox Business, Fox News.
