Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi joins us in studio and explains how a former Enron commodity trader who wants to destroy pension plans across the country, why Rhode Island is at the forefront of pension “reform” policies, why pension “reforms” passing public funds into the hands of Hedge Funds, why Wall Street and crony capitalism caused the pension crisis, the single biggest scam devised by Wall Street, why if you are in the Hedge Fund business you never lose and why Unions are beginning to recognize the pension scam.

On The Better Half: Matt Taibbi gives his play by play commentary of CNBC’s demented interview with Alex Pareene, why anybody could do Jamie Dimon’s job, Jeremy Schahill and Glenn Greenwald working on investigating the NSA’s role in the US assassination program, the Republicans say “lets roll!” as they move towards government shutdown and your calls and IMs.
