The Right-Wing Agenda in Congress

Program #BENL001. Recorded in Tampa, FL on April 14, 1995.

The Contract with America is warmed-over Reaganomics: cut taxes for the rich, increase military spending and balance the budget. Corporate interests are having a field day. Their lobbyists are writing the legislation which Congress enthusiastically passes. Social and environmental programs are being gutted. While assistance to the poor is slashed, corporate welfare continues unabated.
