"Fix the Debt’ CEOs Enjoy Taxpayer-Subsidized Pay"

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Sarah Anderson of the Institute for Policy Studies about their new report, "Fix the Debt’ CEOs Enjoy Taxpayer-Subsidized Pay."

For example, Stephen Hemsley, UnitedHealth CEO, got $68 million in CEO pay over a two-year period thanks to the tax bucks paid by everyday Americans. These same CEOs are also with the 'Fix the Debt,' a group calling for austerity measures that will impact the poor, elderly, and others.

Sam Pizzigati on "The Rich Don't Always Win"

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with Sam Pizzigati about his book The Rich Don't Always Win: The Forgotten Triumph over Plutocracy that Created the American Middle Class, 1900–1970. 

Polls now show that two-thirds of Americans believe that the nation's enormous wealth ought to be "distributed more evenly." But almost as many Americans—well over half—feel that protests against inequality will ultimately have "little impact." The rich, millions of us believe, always get their way.

Except they don't.
