In Defense of the Middle Class
Before unbridled capitalism provided "The 2%" with unimaginable wealth and destroyed the middle class, "The American Dream" was shared by millions. Not so much anymore. A new book by Senator Bernie Sanders and co-author John Nichols frame the problem ... and suggest a fix moving forward.
