Economic Crisis and the Tea Party

Program #GUPA003. Recorded in Baltimore, MD on April 15, 2011.

Audio sample:
You've played by the rules. Went to work every day. Paid your bills and taxes. When your country summoned you to fight in its wars you were proud to serve. You've worked hard all your life and now what do you get? Bupkis as they say in Yiddish. Goat droppings. Your job was outsourced overseas. Your house has been foreclosed. You're in debt. Meanwhile, the big banks are sitting pretty on tons of cash. The stock market and corporate profits are up. GE made billions in 2010 and didn't pay a dime in taxes. With this backdrop in walks the Tea Party. They got the answers. You know why you are getting shafted? It's the immigrants, gays, uppity women, minorities, liberals, unions, and public service workers.

Speaker(s):

Arun Gupta, journalist and activist, was a founding editor of The Indypendent and the Occupied Wall Street Journal. His articles appear in Alternet, Truthout, The Guardian and Z. He also appears on Democracy Now! and Al Jazeera
