EVENT: Campaign '06: The Year of the Hostile Takeover?

Campaign '06: The Year of the Hostile Takeover? With David Sirota Wednesday, May 10, 2006 New York City Hosted by the Progressive States Network and the Drum Major Institute
Author and Progressive States Co-chair David Sirota, a veteran political strategist and Capitol Hill operative, has released a new book called Hostile Takeover showing how political corruption is creating policies that are intensifying America's middle-class squeeze. Now, with corruption scandals dominating the news and wages stagnating, pensions being slashed, and health care costs skyrocketing, America is at a boiling point - just in time for the 2006 elections. Will the hostile takeover of America's government by Big Money interests take center stage in the upcoming campaign season? And what particularly odious policies could be economic wedge issues in the upcoming campaign?
