Class Warfare Goes to the Movies

Hosted by

Americans are supposed to be equal under the law, but the Great Recession renewed awareness of economic inequality. On this Fourth of July, we talk about how that's revealed in some of the films available for this summer's viewing. Also, the first reform of the US tax code in 30 years will start with a "blank slate," and back to reality when the White House and the Capitol were really burned down.
