Summary
Millions of Americans lack health care and millions more struggle to afford it. Wages have been stagnant for thirty years, even as corporate profits skyrocket. Politicians say they want to fix the problem and then pass bills written by lobbyists that drive wages even lower and punish those crushed by debt. Jobs are shipped overseas, pensions are cut, and energy is becoming unaffordable. Sirota, a major new voice in American politics, seeks to open the eyes of ordinary Americans to the fact that corporate interests have undermined democracy, aided and abetted by their lackeys in our allegedly representative government. At a time when more and more of America's major political leaders are being investigated for corruption, Sirota shows how all of this nefarious behavior happened right under our noses--and how the high-profile scandals are merely one product of a political system and debate wholly owned by Big Money interests.--From publisher description
Summary
Offers an analysis of major public issues--spiraling health care and education costs, job outsourcing, and a declining environment--and explains how to find workable solutions despite the efforts of lobbyists, Big Business, campaign cash, and other detrimental interests
