Mark Halperin to Chris Matthews: No, actually Chris, Medicare is going broke
Call this post the “Education of Chris Matthews”, or maybe, why progressives don’t excel at math. Or maybe this is just frustration and denial at the ultimate demise of socialism. I am not sure. But one thing is for sure, Mark Halperin, now an MSNBC analyst, won’t last very long with his new employer if he keeps challenging conventional lefty wisdom. It is truly an awesome moment.
Two clips for you to watch. In the first Halperin calls out Matthews on the Democrat spin that Ryan’s budget will throw grandma under the bus. “We’re not having the adult conversation we should be having in the media.”
The second clip is the money clip. Halperin desperately tries to explain to Matthews why Medicare is going broke and why the lofty promises can’t be kept. “No, the government will provide the health care to seniors it has promised to provide them.” Period. So there. It’s pointless. To lefties, there is always more money. Oh brother. It’s like talking to a wall.
The road to armageddon. Just as a refresher course, read the SOS’ post from last night.
At, the very least we have to be grateful for Mark Halperin's courage. At least we are having an adult conversation with the exception of the clueless Chris Matthews.
I can't believe how much denial the liberal left is in. They think we can just keep spending and spending withour worring where the money will come from. It is like "go see the wizard behind the screen, he will grant your wish".
I think it is just as scaryto think that if the taxes were raised enough to pay some of these bills, it would only result in more spending. It is a never ending loop.
Please forgive the spelling errors, I cant get this program to operate correctly. It wont allow me to edit. (There isn't any cursor)
Matthews – a Carter speechwriter and top aide to Tip O’Neill -? and now he’s an OBJECTIVE journalist!!! What a crock of crap.
