Dave Mazza guest hosts today. He speaks with David Cay Johnston, former New York Times reporter and author of Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (and Stick You with the Bill). Johnston has spent his 40-year career exposing collusion between government officials and private sector entities as they enrich the rich and ignore consequences for middle-class laborers and the poor. In his previous book Perfectly Legal, he focused on hidden inequities in the tax system. He and Dave will discuss the financial crisis and the bailout and how all of us will be affected.
