2. Note in the subject of "spending" David Gregory keeps the myth alive...

The myth goes like this: Everything was fine until Obama increased Welfare for "his own kind".

3. Gregory is such a hack.. No wonder the President doesn't want to do Sunday

Talk shows... I can't even listen to this because of the smwarmy ass Dancing with Rove.. Normally, he would have used 60 mins, but that's too late in the evening to push congress' asses to do anything.

6. D Gregory is a right wing hack..nothing more and simple as that

 

Look at his question of "automatic spending cuts" and "what have you done...i.e...are you part of the problem?" just the posing of these questions speak of his intellectual DISHONESTY on these issues...

He's purposely feigning "ignorance" on what the right wing side in the House and the Senate have done (or NOT done) in order to create this mess...ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, everyone but MSNBC*(Rachel,Ed,Chris,MHP,CH,LD,Rev AS)*

We need more internet sources ala TYT, and other sites like DU, and Daily KOS, and Think Progress to combat this "war on Intelligence" by the RW side....

7. The people who are now retired PAID THE TAX RATES THAT WILL RETURN IF WE GO OFF THE CLIFF.

That is true of the middle class tax cuts as well as the tax cuts for the rich.

Agreeing to a chained CPI that will result in lower Social Security payments or cutting Medicare in exchange for keeping the low tax rates that were introduced during the Bush administration amounts to cheating seniors.

That is all there is to it.

Our economy flourished when we paid those higher tax rates.

The problem with our economy today is "free" trade which has reduced our wage base and resulted in lower tax revenues.

We need to return to the tax rates of the Clinton era when our economy was roaring if not to the higher ones of earlier times when our economy was doing even better.

The chained CPI is essentially a tax on seniors. It takes income away from the economy to give it to younger people in the form of tax cuts.

That is absurd. It is unfair. It is divisive, and President Obama should talk to someone who is not under the influence of Pete Peterson so that a real economist can explain to him why this is a bad idea.

Going off the cliff will be better for American than cutting Social Security or Medicare.

WHEN WE WERE WORKING, WE MIDDLE CLASS RETIREES PAID THE TAX RATES THAT OBAMA NOW WANTS TO AVOID IMPOSING ON THOSE YOUNG WORKING PEOPLE IN TODAY'S MIDDLE CLASS.

Obama and his friends are counting on the fact that most older people will not understand what a swindle this is.

Shame on you, President Obama.

Again, we survived paying those tax rates. They weren't that bad.

8. Finally...

Finally a decent President Obama interview...David Gregory is his usual doubting self, but this gave Obama a decent opportunity to defend himself and talk over a hak that wasn't Bill O'Reilly...
