Fox News Host Slammed As 'Ignorant' By Dem Rep. In Fiery Clash

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Fox News' Neil Cavuto and Democratic Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson had an intensely heated debate about the deficit on Cavuto's Wednesday Fox News show.

The interview came after President Obama laid out his plan to cut the deficit in a Wednesday speech. Johnson is part of a group of progressive Democrats advocating a "People's Budget," which, she told Cavuto, focuses on raising taxes on the wealthy and in investing in education, among other things.

"All of us know that just cutting and doing nothing else is doing nothing more than running jobs out of the country and getting rid of jobs that are here," she said.

"But Congresswoman, we're broke," Cavuto responded, adding that it might be time to "dig out." Johnson said that the country needed to invest in the future through education. Cavuto cut in again. "If I die and leave to my kids just a lot of bills and debt...I've screwed their future."

"You're screwing the future now," Johnson shot back. "...I hate to break it to you, but all I do is follow numbers," he said. I am Fox's nerd here, and we are broke...broke broke broke broke broke."

As the two argued more, Johnson lost patience with Cavuto. "You know what?" she said. "Your problem is, is that you just don't listen; you just scream and you're screaming the same thing these fools are screaming here," she said.

"But ma'am, you're saying the same thing," Cavuto said. "I'm just asking you to say something different."

The interview ended with acrimony on both sides. "You can sit there and be as ignorant as you'd like to be, but it's not going to solve it," Johnson said to Cavuto. "...We're going to hell in a handbasket," he replied.

"I think you're already there," she said. "When you refuse to have vision, you're already in hell."
