Arianna appeared on CNN's "Parker Spitzer" tonight together with Stephen Moore, senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal to debate the government's role in fixing the economy.
"We've got to grow the economy," Arianna said. "And we're not going grow the economy with Republican policies which basically are all about cutting taxes, including for those making over 250,,000 a year.
"The job creators," Moore interjected.
"Those include a lot of people on Wall Street who have moved from making things to making things up," Arianna responded. "They're not exactly job creators. They're not wealth creators. They're just casino gamblers. That's one of the problems we are facing, and you have to come to terms with that and stop defending them."
"On top of it," Arianna said to Moore, "you guys have got to get serious about our military spending. If you are serious about the deficit, you cannot ignore the fact that we are spending $2.8 billion a week on Afghanistan, on a war that is unnecessary, propping up a corrupt regime. What's your excuse for that?"
