We also talk to Chris Hellman of the National Priorities Project, whose work has also been used by the White House, as well as the media, to help people see where their tax dollars are going. He’s on a new task force looking at ways to cut the defense budget in order to reduce the deficit.
Our buddy, political analystBill Scher, just got quoted by the White House in a statement about the middle class tax cuts. Bill’s a little frustrated with politics at the moment – but not for the same reason as a lot of other folks. Which is kind of the point. Hear his side of the story.
