Progressive vs. Regressive America
In this short video, Robert Reich lays out what’s at stake in the 2012 Presidential Election. It’s progressives versus regressives, and the regressives have a 4-part plan to sabotage America that we cannot allow to prevail:
- Make the wealthy wealthier
- Turn Americans against each other (non-union v. union, middle-class v. poor, etc.)
- Deflect attention from Wall Street by focusing on private morality instead of public morality.
- Treat corporations as people and make money the equivalent of speech
“You and I are determined to take this country forward. And together we will.
“So much is at stake this election year. Everything we’ve achieved as a society. Everything we want to achieve in the future. We must not allow the regressives to take us backward.
“The story of America is progressive.”
