Guest: Attorney Peter Mougey

Cue the “Lonely Goatherder” music because this is going to get depressing:

Though the economy added 192,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate dropped below 9.0%, the labor force participation rate is 64.2%. That’s a lot of people sitting on the sidelines not getting counted in the official unemployment rate.

Yesterday we posted the video of Michael Moore’s speech in Madison, WI last weekend proclaiming that America is “not broke.” Those dirty liberals at Bloomberg News agree.

Attorney Peter Mougey joins the show to talk about how individuals, via tort law, are holding Wall Street accountable.

Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson have an article in The Washington Post that calls out what is really happening in Wisconsin: The union fight isn’t about benefits. It’s about labor’s influence.

Check out Sam’s interview with Jacob Hacker on the 11/22/2010 Majority Report.

The GOP is trying to hide an anti-unionization measure in an FAA re-authorization bill.
