"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."

The report released on May 2nd covers the CEO "performance pay" loophole. The report quantifies just how much taxpayers pay for certain CEOs. 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.

Jayne Miller of Oregon Cougar Action Team on Two Bills that Would Allow Use of Dogs to Hunt Cougar

Host Stephanie Potter interviews Jayne Miller, rancher and head of the Oregon Cougar Action Team, about two bills currently being discussed in the Oregon Legislature that would relax the ban on using hound dogs to kill cougar. In 1994 Oregon passed Ballot Measure 18 which bans hunting bears with bait or cougars with dogs. 

Now two cougar-related bills before the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. House Bill 2624 would exempt counties from the statewide prohibition on using dogs to hunt cougars and black bears, if county voters approve. It also would allow the use of bait to hunt bears.

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.
