There's No Way To Fix Deficit Without Entitlement Reform - CNN HOST Just Spewed - BULL

Some girl they pay to spew BS on CNN just said that "there's no way to fix the deficit without entitlement reform". This is a pathological lie. Pure bullsh*t.

We can fix the deficit if the billionaires paid taxes like us working people have to. No need to cut grandma's checks. Raise the cap!!!

God I hate the corporate controlled media / messaging.

Ever wonder why the media never talks about money in politics corrupting the whole system? Of course it's because that's how they get paid.

1. I'm sure she was a woman and not a girl.

However, it certainly is a lie. I hope it was refuted vigorously.

2. CNN Is There To Herd Us - Never Forget

 

Climate change costs 500 billion and counting this year.

Silence.

It takes 10 billion to buy ads for the next "political season".

No comment.

We are being herded into the stockyards.

The media is a greater threat to Amerika than the GOP.

Remember who covered a couple of Trump's crimes before the election?

Eichenwald, and no one else.

Media silence of all of Trump's mafia ties, obvious crimes, charity fraud, self dealing, money laundering etc.

We're so screwed.

1 month of hurricane coverage an no one ever mentioned climate change. Exxon runs CNN and MSNBC.

13. After the republicans added 2 TRILLION DOLLARS to the deficit

 

Last edited Wed Dec 27, 2017, 02:28 PM - Edit history (1)

The payoff to the Koch's, Mercer's and Trump's own crime family and now the drumbeat gets into high gear to kill social security, medicare, every social program you can think of to pay for it.

This is where the democratic party seizes back control of the government and stops the raping of America in 2018 or we descend fully to third word status. We already have third world diseases running rampant already like hookworm, we are halfway to the Randian hell republicans are so desperate for.

10. That's true!

There's no way to fix the deficit without reforming our notion that the rich are entitled to take anything they want from anyone, just because they want to.

12. How about rolling back some of the defense spending entitlements?

it seems like at least some in our military and Congress feel like the Armed Forces are entitled to hundreds of billions in spending every year.

14. Very easy to solve the deficit problem

1) Repeal the Trump Tax Scam
2) Raise the minimum wage to boost the economy from the bottom up - they will spend the money, not hoard it like the rich
3) Make a huge investment in Infrastructure - Make America ready for the 21st century - upgrades roads, bridges, railways, ports and airports; improve the electrical grid; improve national cybersecurity; upgrade/improve our water supply/dams; invest heavily in green energy to make America energy independent.
4) Repeal the income cap on social security contributions
5) The toughest one of all - cut defense spending increases (remember, it was very difficult years back to just cut something from the defense budget that the military said it didn't want or need - the extra engine for the stealth bomber because the extra engines came from companies in blue states...)

16. undoing SS and Medicare may increase deficit

and bring another great recession if not depression. Americans purchasing power will be sugnificantly diminished and may cause ripple effects across economy. Such chain reaction would lead to another bailout and new tax cuts to ‘stimulate’ the economy. Soon enough every program will be privatized and government will bear no responsibility nor ability to held corporations accountable.
