  1. Closed captioning of: GOP's attack on middle class continues

    >>> show. we love hearing from our viewers. that is why this is my favorite segment. tonight our first question come from kathy schertz. why is the gop so against the poor and middle class ? well this is just my opinion. this is the concentration of political power in this country. if the middle class becomes a viable political force, it is going to be really tough for the wealthy and country to drive the agenda. this is why the koch brothers are so advanced in going after workers. this is why alec is a part of writing legislation that attacks institutions that made this country great because those very institutions will have political prowess and they will be able to fight back against the wealthy and concentration of wealth in this country. so that is why the go is so against the poor and middle class . not to mention, they love to privatize everything. they think privatization is key to the success of this country. and as a democrat, as a liberal, i simply cannot good along with that. our next question comes from some i go who calls himself peekaboo. all right. how can you blame gop policies in detroit when demes had control for 50 years? you know what, there isn't a city in this country that could lose 300,000 manufacturing jbs and stay the same with the same tax base. we covered this in the first segment of the program. the bottom line is, these democrats in control of detroit , they believed in fair wages. they believed in healthcare. they believed in pensions, then made shower a living wage was important because that's the culture of the city. that's what henry ford was all about. henry ford was a leader and an icon, a manufacturer. a financier. he believed that american workers were important. that's why he paid them. so the culture of the city moves forward. so does the culture of the country with outsourcing and republican policies and the free markets . detroit was just the first city it pay the price. no, this is all because of republican policy. you see, the democrats in detroit , they care about you after you're born there's a lot more coming up in "the ed show." stick around.
