Brokaw Uses New Poll as Excuse to Continue to Push for Cuts to 'Entitlements'

He just can't stop himself. It's only been a few weeks since Tom Brokaw was on Meet the Press, pushing for cuts to Social Security and Medicare and here he is back again this Sunday, this time using an new NBC/WSJ poll on the public's expectations going into President Obama's second term to push for cutting them again.




You know what's not "unexpected" Tom? That millionaire pundits like yourself are going to continue to push to gut our social safety nets because you don't want your taxes raised.



When I read that Americans believe we need to create jobs, fix the economy and stop the spending, the first things to come into my mind are stop outsourcing, quit with the race to the bottom on wages, quit busting unions and stop wasting money on our bloated military industrial complex. Somehow cutting Social Security benefits instead of raising the cap and cutting Medicare benefits by raising the eligibility age and forcing seniors into private insurance -- instead of addressing the real problems with our rising health care costs -- never made it onto my list. Imagine that.

1. I wonder if Brokaw is involved with Fix the Debt?

The way he keeps harping on this crap makes me think he's shilling for someone. Or else he's just worried about his own tax breaks.

3. I agree. We need to get rid of entitlements

Like all the tax loop holes for the rich and all of the "incentives" and subsidizing of all things corporate.

We need to get rid of the corporations entitlements to poison our water, our air, our livestock, our everything, with impunity.

We need to get rid of corporate entitlements to buy laws, avoid taxes, kill the populace.

Yes entitlements must go.

However Social security is not an entitlement. We have all paid into these "safety nets" all of our lives and if you plan to take that away, you will need to reimburse us, in full, with a very very large interest.

A sadist with a six-figure pension. You're an unredeemable piece of crap, Tom.

13. Brokaw hasn't been outside for a few decades. He hears nothing, sees nothing away from the

DC cocktail party circuit. Golf courses, etc. .. you know.
