BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): People just say that, historically, the president, after he wins, after his first two years, takes a pounding in the midterms. So he's got to somehow buck history. The thing that could help him buck history is what the Democrats are doing, and what they're running on, and it is this socialist platform.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Socialism. Yeah, yeah.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Thanks Bernie Sanders.

EARHARDT: It's becoming the norm. Becoming mainstream. Listen to this. 

...

KILMEADE: Not many people high-five when you get Medicare. I mean, it's not the best. 

...

DOOCY: Right, but if you don't have anything and somebody's offering free college, free healthcare, free everything, that is a very tantalizing prospect.

KILMEADE: But if you didn't learn in school how when you don't have anything, the way to acquire it is not to get it by having it handed to you, but by earning it.

EARHARDT: It's impossible. Do you know what we learned in school? There's no such thing as a free lunch. Remember that in economics? It's true, you've got to work hard for that cheeseburger.
