Campaign for America's Future co-director Robert Borosage joins FireDogLake editor Jane Hamsher and Wisconsin AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer Stephanie Bloomingdale on Cenk Uygur's show on MSNBC February 22.
"It's now important for others to stand up with them," including "people who care about democracy and the distortion of money in our politics," Borosage said. "This is a battle of whether we have a strong middle class, whether we have an operating democracy, and it is time for other groups to pick up this banner."
Hamsher agreed, saying that there are institutional forces on the right who are behind what is happening in Wisconsin and elsewhere, and if these efforts are allowed to succeed there, workers nationwide will feel the devastating effects.
"This is the movement of our time," Bloomingdale said. "The union movement is the only thing that stands between unbridled corporate greed and a true economic democracy."
"Our fight is your fight, and our fight is the fight to reclaim the middle class," she said.
