Via John Lott, who notes that Tim Allen’s sitcom had to add in some slams at Mitt Romney for “balance.” In this clip from Friday’s installment of Jimmy Kimmel, Allen tells Kimmel that it’s better to give away money than let the government take it away:
JIMMY KIMMEL, HOST: Does your family ask you for money when you go back home?
TIM ALLEN: Yes!
KIMMEL: Do they? Yeah, yeah.
ALLEN: Does that ever work, you know? This folds into the government, doesn’t it?
KIMMEL: I think it does work.
ALLEN: You can’t give people money and help them. It doesn’t work.
KIMMEL: Yeah, but they’re willing to try.
ALLEN: Yeah, they are definitely willing to. Oh, God, did you bring up a sore one.
KIMMEL: Well, why don’t you make an announcement right now that you’re headed home and you won’t be giving any money to anyone?
ALLEN: Well, you know what I look at sometimes, I say, “Rather them than the government.”
KIMMEL: I see.
ALLEN: You know, you better give your money away before it gets taken from you.
