Neil Cavuto Repeatedly Confronts Student Pushing Free College Plan With Harsh Facts – Keely Mullen


I happened to be watching Cavuto by chance yesterday. If anyone wants to know what our colleges are producing, here is a prime example. The complete notes are over at You tube. Enjoy the ignorance. Apparently Keely didn’t score well in math. One very special snowflake.

Keely Mullen, an organizer for the Million Student March movement, joined Fox Business Network anchor Neil Cavuto on the air Thursday to discuss the movement’s demands for free public college, student debt cancelation and a $15-an-hour minimum wage for student workers. In the awkward 9-minute interview, Cavuto repeatedly cited facts and figures that seemed to fluster the student.

When asked who would pick up the tab for the demands she listed, Mullen said, “The 1 percent of people who are hoarding the wealth and causing a catastrophe students are facing.”

“If the 1 percent just had their taxes raised a few years ago back to almost 40 percent then to pay for the healthcare law, they had them raised another few percentage points, then they had their deductions limited to raise another couple points — depending on the state or locality — they’re pushing over about 50 percent in taxes,” Cavuto told Mullen. “How much more do you think they should pay?”

Cavuto’s question, asked within the first two minutes of the interview, became the centerpiece of the entire discussion, as Mullen was unable to provide a clear answer.Mullen did say the rate should be raised to “enough until we have a system where not one in two families are threatened with poverty.” And when asked if she and her friends and family would pay more in taxes for her demands, she said “we already are.” However, according to Forbes, 45 percent of households pay no federal income taxes.

    Really hard to stomach the fact that so many of our youth are growing/have grown up to be a bunch of imbeciles!

    Perfect example of the indoctrination of our youth, but of course she has nothing to back it up. I am afraid that this type of thinking is becoming of more of the norm than the exception.

      She gets stumped when one of her talking points are not available to her mind.

    The student is young; the lacks knowledge and understanding of complex economics. This is not entirely her fault because he brain hasn’t fully matured. She is convinced of the soundness of her argument to the extent that she refuses to consider any other possibilities —including mathematical inconsistency. What she is doing in this video is regurgitating the things she hear her professors say. At this stage in the young lady’s life, we can forgive her ignorance; we cannot forgive the stupidity of her professors.

      Very well put. Clearly she is stumped when the talking points cannot resolve the conflict in the discussions. I do hold her responsible for not being willing to explore all facets of the discussion. In College, debate was the driving force in our lectures.

    Back in the days of my youth an old man told me it’s not how much you make its how much you save. Another old guy told me watch your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves. A Volkswagen Beetle commercial from the early 70’s in which a rich old man’s will is read ” to my wife who spent spent spent I leave nothing nothing nothing. Raising taxes on any segment of taxpayers will do nothing more than lead to increased spending. The tipping point at which our “too big to fail government” crashes will be upon us before we know it. Get ready for the coming serfdom.

      We can only hope at best it is serfdom. For some reason I think they may have other options for us.
