March 9, 2014 – Dave Johnson & Cliff Schecter consider jobs, reasons the trade deficit matters more than the budget deficit; trade deals, NAFTA, jobs, unions and resistance to Fast Track for TPP. Political satire from Culture of Truth, then present day Conservatives, CPAC, Putin. Jay Ackroyd moderates.
Commentators Dave Johnson (Campaign for America's Future) & Cliff Schecter (Libertas LLC) discuss
1) Good public policy as popular public policy. A government jobs program with a minimum wage increase would be both. Moral Mondays as an example of bringing public opinion to bare. Gillibrand's populist "Opportunity Agenda."
2) Political satirist CoT's most ridiculous moment from the morning gabfest.
3) Potential progressive options to Clinton (Sanders, Schweitzer, O'Malley) and the impact they may have on the Democratic Party, and Clinton's positions and campaign.
