Cenk and former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) battle it out over Social Security. “There isn’t a single person in your audience that isn’t getting something from the federal government in the form of something and bitching about the government that gives it to them,” Simpson says. Cenk argues that Simpson’s proposal to raise the retirement age is an awful deal for workers. “That’s terrible if you’re a blue collar worker and your actual life expectancy hasn’t changed,” Cenk says.
