3/25 Heather C. McGhee: Money Over Democracy With Matt & Michael

March 25, 2013

Heather C. McGhee, the Vice President of Policy and Outreach at Demos, explained Demos’s new report on how economic inequality is eroding democracy, why dominance of wealth in politics is killing the recovery, why the austerity caucus is afraid of democracy and the future and how clean election laws are essential for protecting democracy and renewing the middle class.

Cyprus agrees to bailout terms with the EU, NRA chief accuses Bloomberg of being “reckless” on guns, the Tea Party organizes a Fox News boycott and hilarity ensues and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
