Eric Cantor: The Middle Class will lose
Sean was joined by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to talk about the future of the U.S. economy and what he thinks will happen to Obama Care. “How many times have you repealed Obama Care in the House,” kicked-off Hannity, “Democrats sold this as a penalty and not a tax but we’ve discovered the overwhelming burden will be on those families making under $120,000 a year.” “You’re absolutely right,” began Cantor, “The President promised that he would not put taxes on the middle class and yet, as the Supreme Court ruled, this is a tax and we know this is forcing people to have health care coverage they don’t like.” The Heritage Foundation has a great article that reinforces Sean’s point that the middle class are hurt the most by Obama Care.

Newt Gingrich: No Taxation With Misrepresentation
Sean spent some time with Newt Gingrich analyzing the 2012 Presidential race from a unique historical perspective. “A Romney presidency would need to educate the American people in the Lincoln tradition,” began Gingrich, “That is, having faith that if the American people have the right information they will make pretty good decisions.” “We’ve gone through difficulties and obstacles before,” presented Sean, “But why do I feel now that we’ve gotten so distant from the concept of liberty that the job has gotten so difficult to save this country.” “It certainly has gotten hard,” agreed Gingrich, “Each of our generations that has faced this has been worried and we should be worried.” Speaker Gingrich recently wrote a great article on President Obama’s Obama Care strategy called, “No Taxation with Misrepresentation” which, as the title suggests, is a great statement on what is happening to middle class taxpayers all over America.

America Is Losing Her Guns
Sean was joined by Wayne Lapierre, the Chairman of the NRA and author John Lott, author of the book, “More Guns, Less Crime” to share the scary news that America is secretly losing its right to bare arms. Yesterday, news broke that President Obama was considering joining a worldwide treaty with the United Nations that would release records of gun owners throughout the country. “I knew President Obama from his days at the University of Chicago law school, we both overlapped there, and he told me one time that he didn’t believe people should own guns,” told Lott, “The first time I met him he told me that he didn’t think people should own guns, since then I’ve tried to talk to him a few times but, because he views my position on guns as being evil, he just didn’t want to talk with me.” “That’s what concerns me about a second Obama term where he doesn’t need to worry about re-election,” caution ed Hannity, “You’re describing someone who has radical views, those that are against our own constitution.” “We have tried to get them to exempt rifles, shotguns and handguns but the United Nations refuses to recognize the legitimacy of any firearm in the hands of a civilian,” explained Lapierre,”That tells you how extreme this is.” For more on this treaty, click here.
