This is what passes for news anchors in America

CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo starts ranting about public health care in England. Congressman Anthony Weiner tries to explain to her that we don’t need to look at other countries, that we already have public health insurance in this country — namely Medicare — and that people who use it are very satisfied.

This is when Maria shows on what planet she is spending her time. She counters “How come you don’t use it? You don’t have it. How come you don’t have it?”

Weiner: “Because I’m not 65.”

Bartiromo: “Yeah… c’mon!”

Seriously. Watch it yourself:

    Congressman Anthony Weiner is 44 years-old, by the way.

    I guess Bartiromo is just as much of a shill as Rick Santelli, Larry Kudlow, and Jim Cramer. Too bad.
