The Deficit Commission In the Real World Rick Smith Show Interview

Richard Eskow

I appeared on the Rick Smith Show this weekend to talk about the Deficit Commission report (it’s technically not an official report, but it’s being treated like one anyway), and what its recommendations would mean to a lot of people in this country.

Rick, who’s based in central Pennsylvania, does a great job of discussing the issues from the perspective of working men and women.  As if that weren’t enough, the intro music for this segment (Social Distortion’s cover of “Ring of Fire”) will be met with great approval among Southern California punk-rockers.  

Our conversation is here. (The clip will start to play as soon as you click on the link, so don’t click if you’re anyplace where the punk version of a Johnny Cash song might not be well received).
