The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 12/14/10

Air date: 
Tue, 12/14/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Compromise = Giving the Republicans everything they hold dear.

 Join Abe and Joe as we mourn the death of the New Deal. President Obama's  tax cut "compromise" spells out, in painful detail, the final death of the idea of liberalism as a governing philosophy. Obama was elected at the head of a populist wave and enjoyed strong majorities in both houses of Congress -- but at every turn, the prerogatives of the ruling class remained intact. The Bush tax cuts remain in place. Unemployment remains high. Obama and the Democrats kiss the ring of their corporate masters. Rest in peace, American Century. We hardly knew ye.
