Marco Rubio Wants To Slash Social Security And Medicare, Won't Distance Himself From Beck

Marco Rubio was on Morning Joe and, as all good conservatives do, he bashed entitlements such as Social Security and Medicare. Like good conservatives, he says they have to be reformed, but Joe never asked him how he would reform either of them and he didn't offer up any solutions either. He knows most Americans will not put up with anyone cutting those programs.

I have a solution for you: How about raising taxes on the rich? I think 95% of the country will really like that approach. Or, maybe stop funneling $700 billion dollars a year into the War Machine and $65 billion a year into the two wars we are in now. I think many people would like that also.

Rubio also said he never heard Beck call Obama a racist and wouldn't distance himself from Glenn Beck when Scarborough asked him if he would do so.

Funny how these Republicans never manage to hear their fellow right-wingers when they come unhinged, but love to whine about how nasty liberals are, isn't it?
