Clip from the April 4, 2010, Cenk Uyger Show, where Cenk, Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders and E.J. Dionne from the Washington Post discuss, dissect and debunk Paul Ryan's 2012 proposed budget madness that includes (in addition to massive social spending cuts, surprise, surprise) more of the same "trickle down" economics in the form of a reduction of the top marginal rate on the wealthiest 2% from 35% to 25% (roughly a 30% reduction).

Sen. Bernie Sanders

As Washington lurched toward a government shutdown by the end of this week, the White House and congressional Republicans failed on Tuesday to agree on how many billions of dollars to cut from spending for the rest this fiscal year. In the Senate, there was a serious sentiment developing that any deal to lower deficits should include additional revenue from the wealthiest Americans. Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed a 5.4 percent surtax on millionaires to raise up to $50 billion a year. Weve got to stand up and speak sense to the American people, Sanders told radio host Ed Schultz in an interview after a very hot and very interesting closed-door meeting of Senate Democrats.

1. Ryan's basically setting up the death panels
and then positioning himself to say it's all the government's fault.

With what kind of margin did ryan win his election?

8. 6-7pm Eastern on MSNBC
If you mean a video/podcast of the whole show, that's not on the MSNBC website. But you can watch clips from the show on two of the TYT YouTube channels:

5. C-Span had a GOP cheerleader
for Ryan's proposals on this morning. I had to turn it off.

6. C-Span ought to put on Ezra Klein
He had a brilliant post debunking Paul Ryan's math:

7. That's a good article.
C-Span has no interest in telling our side. I watch Washington Journal every morning. They are subtly one sided. Many Republicans call in complaining it is one-sided the other way. But these callers see anything more fair and balanced than Fox News as biased the other way.

My complaint is the guest line up sequence. After they have someone on carrying the right wing message, they seldom allow anyone on to counter.
