Bill Maher appeared on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” to discuss the GOP’s long-term budget plan that includes large tax cuts for the rich in an attempt to reduce the deficit — an idea the HBO comedian called a “fantasy” that was discredited in the 1980s.

“I don’t know what to say about these people Rachel, I hate them as much as you do,” Maher said.

Maher and Maddow discussed how they believe President Barack Obama and Democrats should respond to the plan authored by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) that privatizes Medicare and deeply cuts Medicaid over a decade.
