Andrew Sorkin's Revealing Limousine Liberal Moment On CNBC This Morning

If you doubted that CNBC co-anchor, and New York Times columnist Andrew Sorkin is a limousine liberal, consider this moment from this morning's Squawk Box program.

A guest who was a former CEO of Staples was discussing the effects on the average American household of increasing taxes. He explained how most Americans would react to threats of higher taxes by cutting spending elsewhere and treating the planned tax increases as a negative uncertainty.

Sorkin chimed in with this gem, as closely paraphrased as I can recall,

'Do you really think people do that? Do they really notice tax increases?'

I think Sorkin has finally marked himself as a liberal now completely out of touch with the average American, what with his three careers- columnist, CNBC anchor, and published writer with an HBO movie based on his book.

You can't make this stuff up, can you?
