Hannity Guest Smacks Down Right-Wing Talking Points About Businesses Being Too Afraid Of Obama To Invest

Reported by Ellen - October 30, 2011 -

On Thursday’s Hannity show (10/27/11), radio host Jay Thomas was part of the Great American Panel segment. Sean Hannity argued the familiar right-wing talking point that despite the deficit, it would be bad for the economy to raise taxes on businesses because they won’t spend money on hiring and investing in growth. “Businesses have more cash than they’ve ever had since (unintelligible),” Thomas began.

“Yeah, but they’re afraid Obama and big-spending liberals are gonna take it,” Hannity countered.

“They’re not so afraid they’re not giving themselves huge bonuses, Thomas shot back.

Co-panelist and pundit Patricia Murphy said, “That’s an excellent point.”

Hannity had no rebuttal.
