STU: Which, which guy? I don't know who you're speaking of.
GLENN: Alan Grayson.
STU: Oh, the guy who lost by 18 points?
GLENN: (Laughing). Wait a minute. I didn't know -- you know 18 has an 8 in it.
GLENN: Oh, I didn't know he lost that much. Oh, that's great.
STU: Well, he did get one term.
STU: (Laughing). You're a loser. You're a fail you're, Alan.
GLENN: I don't hate him anymore. I don't hate him anymore, I really don't. It's
almost like I pity him. It's almost like I really, I have pity for him.
STU: With a dash of hate.
GLENN: He's so sad and pathetic, I feel bad. So anyway, he was on the floor of
the House and he blew up a big picture of me yesterday and here's what he said.
GRAYSON: Madam Speaker, we've heard endless braying --
GRAYSON: -- from Republicans time after time demanding an extension of tax cuts
for the rich in this country. They tell us that extending the tax cuts for the
rich will somehow create jobs when we've had these tax cuts for the rich for
nine years and I haven't noticed a whole lot of jobs being created in the last
STU: Oh, really?
GLENN: Hold on just a second.
PAT: Let's look into that for a second.
GLENN: I thought you created and saved 3 million jobs. I thought that -- wait.
He hasn't noticed any.
STU: He hasn't noticed any.
GLENN: He didn't notice any.
STU: Did he notice the second longest period of job creation in our nation's
history that happened since?
PAT: After, after 9/11.
STU: Yeah, after 9/11 the second longest period of consecutive job creation in
our nation's history.
PAT: It's like this --
GLENN: It wasn't number one. It wasn't number one, okay? It wasn't number one.
STU: That is true.
GLENN: By the way, we are looking for something with an 8 in it.
GLENN: Anyway, go ahead.
GRAYSON: Dramatically boost the economy, I haven't noticed that happening since
the last nine years, either.
GRAYSON: So you really have to wonder why it is that they persist in this mania,
this obsession of theirs that we need to have more tax cuts for the rich when
the economy is flat on its back and unemployment is almost 10%. I think I have
STU: More tax cuts. Now --
GRAYSON: The answer turns out --
STU: That is the most -- it's such a ridiculous argument. It needs to be pointed
out every time.
GLENN: Yeah, there are no more new tax cuts. Nobody's talking about cutting
taxes, nobody. Nobody.
PAT: We're talking about keeping them at the same level.
GLENN: Don't raise the tax. Don't raise the tax. There are 80% of Americans say
raising the taxes at this time is a very bad idea. 80%.
STU: And we're not talking about a rate that kicked in last year. It has been
the rate that has been on the books for a decade. You can't count it as a tax
cut when it's been on the books for a decade.
GLENN: Elmo can. Because I get paid by the federal government.
GRAYSON: Be very simple. They want a tax cut for the rich because they want a
tax cut for themselves. What I mean by that? Well, let's take a look at the
people who are really in charge, the ones who actually run the Republican Party.
Let's start with this gentleman here.
PAT: And it's a picture of? Rush with a cigar.
GRAYSON: The man with the cigar, Rush Limbaugh. Doesn't he look happy?
PAT: He does.
STU: He does, and you don't look happy because you lost by 18 points.
GRAYSON: He makes $58.7 million a year, and extending the Bush tax cuts for the
rich will mean that he will have another $2.7 million.
GLENN: And I hope he blows it all on jet fuel.
PAT: And cigars. And here's the thing. He's not getting an extra. That's what he
gets now. You're talking about taking that from him.
STU: Yeah, taking additional funds from Rush.
PAT: An additional $2.7 million.
GRAYSON: Megadittos, Rush, and megamoney.
STU: By the way, we've worked in the same studios, the same building as Rush. He
has half of a wing. There are -- how many employees does he have in there? He's
employing so many people just across the room from our old studio.
GLENN: Elmo says disregard those facts.
PAT: And now it's... the Forbes magazine cover with --
GRAYSON: Here's Glenn Beck. According to Newsweek, Glenn Beck makes $33 million
a year as a pundit.
GLENN: Hold on just a second.
PAT: As a pundit.
GLENN: That's all I do.
PAT: That's all you do.
GLENN: Yeah. Alan, how much do you make? How much do you make? Does it keep you
up at night?
PAT: As a fired congressman?
GLENN: As a fired congressman?
STU: Alan Grayson, remember, is one of the wealthiest people in congress because
he was a shyster lawyer before he came into congress. So he actually is very
wealthy and does very well.
GLENN: How much did he make?
STU: I don't know. I know he had -- I can find out.
GLENN: You should find out how much he made because he is one of the average
everyday people. By the way, the Forbes magazine and $33 million, first of all,
every American should celebrate that a man who was broke in 1995 can make a lot
of money and create a company that now has 46 employees, or 40 -- what are we,
43 employees or something like that? I don't know because we're hiring people.
And next year we're planning on adding another 40 to 50 people.
PAT: Now, you make all $33 million for yourself and then everybody --
GLENN: No, I don't --
PAT: Everybody else is gratis?
GLENN: That's the company's money.
PAT: Your 43 --
GLENN: That's the company's money.
PAT: And we all work for free?
GLENN: No, that's the company's money.
PAT: This is just voluntary work for us.
GLENN: No, that's the company's money. Our second -- what is it? No, I think
it's our third biggest division, our third biggest division is expected to make
$7 million. Part of this, part of this $33 million, $7 million next year is the
projection. How much of that $7 million did I just sit with my business partner
and say we are going to reinvest in that division?
PAT: I know, I know, I know.
GLENN: Do you? Go, go. Go, Pat, yes.
PAT: I'm going to say...
GLENN: Elmo says Pat.
PAT: Umm, $4?
STU: $6, $6.
GLENN: Elmo knows, Elmo knows, Elmo knows. It doesn't matter because that money
shouldn't even go to them anyway because that money should go to the government
to help out children.
STU: You got the correct answer, Elmo.
GLENN: Out of $7 million, we are going to reinvest $7 million.
PAT: Which will employ how many people do we project?
GLENN: Well, we're not hiring 40, I think it's 46 people, but there is also
other reinvestments on advertising, buying equipment, change that we have to
build another area out. I mean, we'll hire contractors. $7 million. 100% is
going back in. Now, when Alan Grayson can show me how somebody who is making
$40,000 a year is going to invest $7 million in the economy next year, you let
me know, Alan!
PAT: Those numbers can only work with the federal government. That's why we're
in the shape that we're in.
GLENN: I mean, it's just, it is so aggravating that they are demonizing the
people who are actually creating jobs.
PAT: Yep. And let's find out how much of that evil money you're going to save
next year with the tax cuts.
GRAYSON: And extending the Bush tax cuts means a cool $1.5 million for Glenn
Beck's ongoing night-by-night imitation of Howard Beale from network.
GLENN: Oh, I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore.
STU: See, that's the thought that people were making in 2009.
PAT: And the thing is they start taking that extra 1 1/2 million from you from
GLENN: Where do you think it's going to come from?
PAT: Does that mean you still hire --
GLENN: I won't.
PAT: -- as many people as you were going to?
GLENN: Only because I can't.
GLENN: Only because I can't. Because I also don't know what they're going to do
on healthcare! I don't know what they are going to do with the FCC! I don't
know! Businesses don't invest their money right now because we're afraid of
what's called the boogeyman, government, because they don't protect and defend
us anymore. They don't protect my right to life, they don't protect my right to
life or my liberty or my pursuit of happiness. That's all I'm trying to do is
pursue my happiness. And that's what Americans are trying to do. And these guys
come out and rape your company, rape your wallet time and again. When Mr.
Grayson will work for free, you let me know. If he's a big millionaire, work for
free. When you actually stand up and say it's obscene that we come in here and
we do to this country what we've done and we make $175,000 from the middle class
taxpayers, we take their money. People who make $70,000 a year and we take their
money and we take $175,000 to serve those people, you let me know, you big fat
PAT: Now say it like Elmo.
GLENN: Elmo says you shouldn't say big fat slob.
STU: By the way, Pat, what was that number that they said over $30 million for
PAT: Yeah, 33.
PAT: By the way, roll call, the Capitol Hill newspaper ranked Alan Grayson the
twelfth among all members of congress based on financial disclosure forms with a
minimum net worth of $31.12 million.
PAT: Jeez. What a hypocrite.
GLENN: What a hypocrite.
GLENN: By the way, I don't have anything close to $31 million in the bank.
STU: It's because you spent it all on shelters.
GLENN: It's all in my mattress.
