Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class
Thom Hartmann talked about the new book he co-wrote with Mark Crispin Miller, Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class, And What We Can Do About It, published by Berrett-Koehler. He said that government policies are endangering the middle class, alleging that conservatives are creating rules and conditions that value corporations over people. He said the result is the abandonment of health care and social policies put in place by the Roosevelt, Truman, and Eisenhower administrations. He argued that the disappearance of these programs will cause the extinction of the middle class. He and Professor Miller responded to audience members' questions. close
