ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): Socialism is spreading across America, starting from California. Ten to fifteen -- Upping to $10 to $15 minimum wage is the first way. Remember Seattle tried that. Restaurant owners flocked away from Seattle. That's failing -- in the process of failing in Seattle. California wants to do it now too, knock yourself out. Free everything. Free health care, free tuition. You don't even have to be a citizen of California or the United States to get most of the free things now too. You can just come across the border and get it. It's awful. They're not going to -- California's not going to be able to pay for it. Business aren't going to be able to pay for all these--

JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): So you think this is going to implode?

BOLLING: It has to implode. It's a house of cards. But Dana makes a very important point, that this should happen, but it should come because businesses choose to do it because they don't want to lose good workers. Not mandated to do it.
