Bernie Sanders "Nervous" Obama's Talk Of "Entitlement Reform" Means "Cuts"
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) talks to ‚ÄúViewpoint‚ÄĚ host Eliot Spitzer about the impending fiscal cliff. Sanders argues that the best way to raise revenue and reduce the deficit is to raise taxes on the rich by returning to Clinton-era tax rates.
‚ÄúI get nervous that instead of bringing back the old Clinton-era tax rates for the wealthiest people ‚ÄĒ 39.6 [percent] ‚ÄĒ there may be a way to wiggle out of that,‚ÄĚ he tells Spitzer. ‚ÄúI get very nervous when I hear the president and others continue to talk about ‚Äėentitlement reform,‚Äô which I‚Äôm afraid is just another word for cuts in Medicare and Medicaid, maybe even Social Security.‚ÄĚ
