HARRIS FAULKNER (FOX NEWS ANCHOR): And I would say, or ask, is this about the fact, Kayleigh, you point all that out, that this is not paid for? This is — now we’ve wiped away the work requirement. That means — he kept talking about working families, but how does that jibe, because it's not -- this is debt on debt on debt, and now you don’t even have to be a working family, necessarily, to get this.

KAYLEIGH MCENANY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Yes, and it’s debt on debt on debt, and on top of that we are in a situation where we don’t have workers to fill the jobs because of checks that have been written in COVID relief, because of unemployment benefits. Added on top of that, child tax credit, yet another reason not to go back to work. There is a place for welfare in this country, but excessive welfare without work requirements, that’s where we get into really dangerous territory.
