CNBC is so transparently one-sided this morning - they have polls
up showing 55% will support moving retirement age, 65% will support means testing, 70% would support something else - BUT THEY ARE ALL BENEFIT REDUCTIONS.

What they have failed to state is that most everybody would support eliminating the income cap or raising payroll taxes on the upper end of income earners.

Anyone else catch this?

1. Those options are not on the table.
Don't worry, though. Obama will save the elderly.

3. What remains on the table is our SS money,
which the rich are about to divide up among themselves.

4. What do you expect?
They would do away with all benefits and anything else that would benefit the working class.

CNBC is not our friend.

5. No, I'm aware of that - it's just that their bias was so evident.

You kind of expect them to be better at this smoke and mirrors deflection thing they have going on.

6. They don't make any pretense anymore about where they stand.
Their audience is that narrow. I used to watch it to get real-time stock market reports...but now I can't stand them because their bias is so big toward what will screw over the lower classes the most nso that the high-powered CEOs and other execs will continue to get theirs.
