NBC's Rick Santelli on Sunday compared the budget crises affecting state and federal balance sheets to a Sept. 11-type attack on the nation.

There have been questions about the appropriateness of collective-bargaining agreements for public employees since the days of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Santelli added, and states are realizing that pension and benefit costs need to be controlled.
"This is an issue that needs to be put out into the air," Santelli said. "Many other states ultimately they might not have the same balance sheet as Wisconsin but collective bargaining from the federal level ... these are big issues, and these costs need to be put under control."
The dude is still on a roll.
While the rest of the Obama Toadies on CNBC are playing the music and directing the musical chairs on deck of the Titanic, Santelli is the only guy screaming: hey you morons their is a freakin iceberg ahead. I swear they only keep him on so they do not loose the conservatives that watch that are market oriented.
I have a relative who is a teacher in Ohio who will retire with a pension of 60K. My relative is retiring to avoid changes in health benefits deductions for retirees. Right now the retirees pay nothing toward it.
No no, 0 said we could absorb another 9-11 type attack. Drug induced hut case!
Hut case? Are we still talking about Santelli or Obama's birthplace? ; )
I watch Rick about every weekday. I do like his style.
