CNBC Host: We Should Cut Medicare Benefits Because Big Business Is Cutting Workers’ Health Care

Am I wrong to think CNBC is worse than Fox at this point?

--

MATHISEN: How specifically would you address the spending in Medicare? I — it seems to me that Americans are very accustomed to seeing their health care benefits cut. Just ask anyone who works for a major corporation over the past twenty years, and you would see that the portion of your medical care that you pay for has risen as the portion that your medical care that the company pays for has declined. Why are we so afraid of that?

1. No you are not wrong

CNBC is a corporate wall street mouthpiece spewing the most vile BS.

2. If cutting Medicare leads to greater Democratic control

over the levers and institutions of government, then a liberal cynic could hope that Mathisen's arguments win.

The American people are tired of this bullshit. That was the lesson of Election Day.

But some people never learn, so hey what can I say.

7. Is this their idea of culling the human "herd" of the old, sick and weak?

Wolves don't even bother with sheep's clothing these days.
