1/21 Bernie Sanders, Adam Green & Charles Pierce: the Progressive Response to the SOTU

January 21, 2015

Vermont Senator and progressive champion Bernie Sanders explains what President Obama got right at the State of the Union and why we are in record levels of inequality. The proposals that would help solve the poverty crisis and Why TPP and Fast Track trade authority are problems for inequality and transparency.

The beautiful moment when President Obama burned the Republicans.

Adam Green Co-founder, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, explains what President Obama got right in his SOTU. Why progressives won the rhetorical fight, but are Democrats really moving in a progressive direction? The obvious progressive ideas that are popular with everyone. Outlining the goal of debt free college. And how do we finally reform trade laws.

On The Fun Half: The great Charles Pierce breaks down the President’s SOTU. Why poverty has disappeared from our political discourse. The role of Reagan, Clinton and race in ignoring poverty and the problem with middle class rhetoric.
