CNBC's Erin Burnett on National Debt: 'The Problem is Our Revenue'

Posted by highlysuspect on April 13, 2011 in politics |

Appearing on Monday’s NBC Today to discuss the debate over reducing the nation’s debt, CNBC host Erin Burnett declared to co-host Matt Lauer: “The problem is our revenue, what the government takes in, in taxes. What you pay every month out of your paycheck is way smaller, in fact, its only somewhere around $2 trillion a year.”

After Lauer asked about the relationship between government spending and the debt, Burnett acknowledged: “They are related, but really, to tackle this issue, we do have to tackle entitlements. When you look at Medicare and Social Security, its 40% of our budget.” However, she quickly denounced Republican attempts to use a raise in the debt ceiling to cut such spending: “Those are the questions we have to answer, but not through playing chicken on the debt ceiling.”
