Dylan Ratigan let it rip while hosting a discussion on the seemingly endemic problems that the U.S. political process is enduring — specifically how it relates to responsibly fiscal policy — the MSNBC host got really angry over what he sees as the real mathematical problem at play. The impassioned diatribe was delivered in the context of the recent credit downgrade and market volatility, and Ratigan placed equal blame on both Republicans and Democrats, but mostly argued about the entire integrated system, which included banking, trade and taxation.
It’s a rare moment to see a cable news host speak so passionately, and this is about as entertainingly unhinged as you will ever want to see.
Quote from Dylan Ratigan
We’ve got a real problem – this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, Republicans aren’t doing it, an entire integrated system, banking, trade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now.
The difference between a Tea Party rant and this Dylan Ratigan rant is that Ratigan blames Republicans and Democrats for decades of poor oversight.
