Short Description: 
Saving the Economy or Saving the Rich? The $700 billion bailout plan.

The Bush administration says it needs $700 billion to avert the current financial crisis from turning into a global depression. Taxpayers see this as another use of their money to protect the wealthy. Congress is caught in the middle, trying to come up with a plan that will stop a financial meltdown without turning voters against. them.

What exactly does need to be done about the collapse on the Wall Street? Will the administration's plan help or hurt the situation? This week, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Bill Scher of Campaign for America's Future, a non-profit organization advocating progressive solutions to the nation's problems. We'll also be bringing you the latest information as the House considers a new vote on the administration's plan. Join us in this important discussion about how we fix the financial crisis.
