Short Description: 
As the Republic is delivered into the hands of the plutocrats, Abe surveys the wreckage.

 We truly have passed through the looking glass. With unemployment near 10 percent for the third straight year, the patricians in Washington haggle over whether corporate jets deserve special tax consideration. In the name of fiscal discipline, after eight years of reckless borrowing and warmongering under G.W. Bush, congressional Republicans have seen fit to hold hostage the creditworthiness of the United States.

Winners and losers in 2011 Oregon legislative session

program date: 
Thu, 07/07/2011

Host Jo Ann Bowman conducts a review of the recent 2011 Oregon legislative session.  Tax payers are funding more for prisons, and less for just about everything else -- we can thank Kevin Mannix and the passage of his measure 57 for mandatory sentences. Also thank legislators who "passed the buck" on this issue.  Minority and ethnic groups lost out when House Republicans voted against a cultural competency bill.
