- Eric Kingson, professor of social work at Syracuse University’s School of Social Work and co-director of the Strengthen Social Security Campaign, discusses the concern that future negotiations between the White House and Congress to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling could result in benefit cuts for Social Security and Medicare, i.e. implementing Chained CPI and/or increasing the eligibility age for earned benefit programs.
- John Nichols, Washington, D.C. correspondent with The Nation magazine, examines the political environment that set the stage for the government shutdown and the related issues examined in his book, “Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America,” co-authored with Robert McChesney, which connects the dots between the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, record campaign spending and the decline of independent, investigative journalism.
- Christian Ramírez, Director of the US Mexico Border Program of the American Friends Service Committee discusses the recent March for Immigrant Dignity and Respect, part of a national campaign to pressure Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation. Eight Congresspersons joined 200 other protesters who were arrested as part of a pro-immigration reform “civil disobedience” event in front of the U.S. capitol on October 8th.
- Lucy Nolan executive director of the group End Hunger Connecticut, talks about how the current federal government shutdown has impacted food banks and nutrition programs like WIC & Meals on Wheels here in CT – as well as the more long term effects of sequestration and other budget cuts targeting social safety net programs.
