Erin Burnett Questions Need For Extended Unemployment Benefits; Compares U.S. System To China As Model

You Tube

Erin Burnett hides behind a viewer email to question whether or not the United States should be extending unemployment benefits for workers who have lost their jobs since so many people are "asking about it". I guess in Burnett's world, our country would be better off if we were more like China.

I'd like to know if Burnett has ever questioned whether these overpaid Wall Street a-holes she sucks up to every day deserve the golden parachutes they're walking away with - after destroying our economy. How about that for a random thought to come out of that head of yours?

And of course Scar can't help himself, trying to one-up her for the day's biggest "compassionate conservative" - he even manages to get a shot in at single mothers before the segment is over. These people have no souls.

Adam Green wrote Burnett an open letter over at the HuffPo. As he noted you can let her know how you feel about this at: SquawkOnTheStreet@cnbc.com.
