program date:

Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

It's no secret that for progressives, the Obama administration has been a mixed bag. A number of landmark accomplishments seem diminished in light of what they might have been, had the President and his Congressional majority had the backbone to challenge the prerogatives of the wealthy.
