Congressmember Peter DeFazio interviewed
Listen Up: Post Wisconsin, U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio gave his reflections in an interview by Carl Wolfson of Portland's KPOJ. Given the 8 to 1 monetary advantage, one political consultant told the congressman that he could get people to hate Mother Teresa. Both agreed that Citizens United is wrecking our democracy. DeFazio predicts that if the Republicans win a majority in the Senate in 2012 they will laugh and quickly abolish the filibuster which has hobbled the Obama presidency. It is a great back and forth between two progressives -- so go to KPOJ and listen to the full interview. And listen to KPOJ or its podcasts (available online or via iTunes) for more great stuff. Carl in the Morning is one of my favs.
