Fox News’ hosts are known for insensitive remarks, and yesterday was no exception. During Fox News’ “The Five,”, co-host Andrea Tantaros described why she believes the recession was a good thing for this generation of children.

Children in impoverished households are also more likely to suffer from stress and depression, because they often worry about their parents financial situations.
