David Gregory: Entitlements Are 'Cannibalizing' The Budget

David Gregory really hates all those people on the short side of growing income inequality.

Why does David Gregory hate seniors and poor people so much?

In a discussion over the government shutdown, Gregory laments that the intransigence preventing a debt ceiling agreement is also keeping congresspeople from sitting down to deal with the great, looming problem of "entitlements cannibalizing" the budget.


Why is it that those cushy, isolated and well-off Beltway denizens ignore that thirty years of kowtowing to irresponsible Republican policies have resulted in the worst level of income inequality in the developed world and the only answer that occurs to them is to make those who can least afford it suffer even more? We're creating more and more people who need to be able to rely on the government for a minimal level of subsistence, and David Gregory thinks taking more out of their mouth and reducing their health care options is what the congress should really be focusing on.

And while I'm at it, Dick Durbin, don't let the door hit you on your way out, you neo-liberal traitor. Simpson/Bowles didn't put everything on the table. It was a budget spending plan; nowhere did they address investment to grow the economy. It couldn't even get the approval of the "Catfood Commission", for crying out loud. On what planet do you have to reside to believe it could get through this Congress?

You're not helping, Dick. And Gregory? You're just flat out hating on the people in this country who are not at your socio-economic level (which is 95% of us, you insular hack). What's cannibalizing this country is the unmitigated greed and ignorance of Beltway chumps like you.

Methinks it's time for another "Modest Proposal". Let's start with Beltway pundits.
