Bartiromo: Are you guys just incompetent or what? I mean, if you can't do this, if you can't do what the American people pay you to do, why don't you just step aside and put somebody in there who can actually get a deal done?
. . . You're talking about $1.2 trillion in revenue, but you're not prepared to put anything on the table. People are not stupid.
. . . Cardin: The easiest way to get the revenues is to get the rates on the higher-income taxpayers.
Bartiromo: That's all you want to do. That's it. It's your way or the highway. Raise the rates on the rich. No other way. Your way or the highway. That's it.. That's where we are. Thank you, Senator.
Cardin: Next time, let me answer the questions --
Bartiromo: Oh, you've answered them. Clearly.

I Love her but I really thought she was just a Bully and did nothing but trivialize what is going on. Boehner is jerking us all around. He doesn't have the votes nor the Intestinal Fortitude to go against those who have bought Congress. He can't control his caucus. We had an election we voted for taxes being raised on those over 250K and Obama has given even more. We knew what we were voting for. The Republicans have to face reality They LOST. The Senator could not get a word in edge wise. It reminded me of Hard Ball with Chris Matthews.
~ Jackie S.
She never treats Republicans in such a contemptuous way, she's becoming all that's bad on cable, look for her to move to Fox soon where she'll fit in perfectly!
~ John M.
Raise those mean nasty rich people's taxes don't raise mine I want my gubmint check to come on time lol welcome to Rome 700 A.D. All empires come to an end.
~ Gary E.
love it. I don't care which party or politician she's interviewing, every one of them is ruining Christmas.
~ George P.
Great job Maria !!! this guys need to be push for a "yes" or "no" answer, other-way they only say "bla-bla-bla".
~ Diego S.
CNBC might consider that Democrats are their viewers too. We do not need CNBC commentators to spread Republican lies and deceit; they already have Fox News for that. Why does Maria not ask Boehner or Republican guests what spending cuts they would support that does not entail throwing Grandma from the train. Maria needs to take some time off, a lot of time off. Perhaps, she would be happier over at Fox News.

The Cliff Diving has begun ... Maria is going to be much poorer as Wisdom Tree Funds lose a billion dollars by the close of tomorrow's market. Karma for the house of Steinberg from all the Frank B. Hall people they screwed in the 1980's.
~ Fred C.
hahahaha,,, Maria is among the 1% of filthy rich American, who are against raising the taxes for the 1% and will pick-on and corner any Democrat politician, while giggling and flirting with the republican politicians she gets to interview... hahaha,, great way for CNBC to glamorize her,,,,, she must be getting desperate and scared like the rest of the 1%, thinking about the tax hike she is going to have to pay up... :))))
~ Vin da V.
Always thought CNBC was bipartisan.... Neutral..... This is sad. CNBC is allowing right wing tantrums on air. So unprofessional..... The last straw was Maria acting like a little school girl giggling over the attention she got on the floor. I will be watching Bloomberg from now on.
~ Andrea L.
Itsy bitsy spider going over the cliff, watch out Maria your going to get bit, Ranting, ranting ranting is not impressing most, we all know your really should quit. Terrible, me bad. Please Faux Fox, hire Maria.
~ Shirley M-D
Great. Just wish the guy had been next to her so she could grab him by the collar and shake sh#t out of him. Loved the applause at the end.
