"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Actor Noah Wyle, arrested at DC protest against Medicaid cuts, joins Thom Hartmann. Maybe we should ask Speaker Boehner what his definition of a "loser" is. Are school teachers who haven't made millions laying off factory workers losers? What about community organizers who devoted their days to registering voters rather than mergers and acquisitions - are they losers, too? If so - that might explain a lot about what Republicans have been trying to do in the House of Representatives the last year - giving trillions in tax breaks to so-called "winners" - and ripping the social safety net out from under the rest of us. It's in response to this attack on working Americans - that around 100 people were arrested last week for demonstrating outside Congressman Paul Ryan's Capitol Hill office.
