Has NPR Joined Peter Peterson's Crusade Against Social Security and Medicare?

Has NPR Joined Peter Peterson's Crusade Against Social Security and Medicare? | Beat the Press

Pete Peterson is an evil man. There I said it. He refuses to see the problem of income inequality, which he has a part in, and would rather focus on generational inequality. But main street is composed of all generations and the real battle is between Wall Street and the rest of us, not a dividing of main street, which Wall Street pays for!

From Dean Baker's blog:

Peter Peterson, the Wall Street investment banker, has been most visible in this effort, committing over $1 billion of his fortune for this purpose. Recently he enlisted a group of CEOs in his organization, Fix the Debt, which quite explicitly hopes to divert concerns over income inequality into concerns over generational inequality. It argues that programs like Social Security and Medicare, whose direct beneficiaries are disproportionately elderly, are taking resources from the young.
If the young fall for this baloney of a very bad man, then all is lost in the war, for more fairness in our economic system. And don't be fooled young and old, the war was started by predators from Wall Street.
