MSNBC host Ed Schultz railed against talk of President Obama potentially offering up any of the “Big 3″ entitlement programs for reform Thursday on MSNBC.
Schultz and Sen. Bernie Sanders (D., Vt.) were apoplectic throughout most of the segment, even going as far to suggest any compromise on entitlements would be “criminal:”
BERNIE SANDERS: Look, you are dealing with a major ideological split in this country. It takes us back to the 1932 presidential election. Hoover versus Roosevelt. On this issue, Ed, we have the vast majority of the American people behind us. We control the White House. We control the Senate. It would be criminal to cave on this issue.
ED SCHULTZ: Criminal to cave. I agree. And I think all Democrats need to stand up and remind the president what this is all about. Having dinner with these guys, you can’t trust them.
