George Goehl: Have Corporations Purchased our Government?

Whether you consider yourself a progressive or libertarian, an atheist, an agnostic, we need to consolidate around a core problem: massive corporations having purchased control of the government that is profitable for them and destructive for us.

On this episode of Radio Free Dylan, we’re joined by George Goehl, Executive Director of National People’s Action.  This very week they led a protest at the National Association of Attorney General’s Convention in Washington, D.C.  They’ve demanded that America’s Attorneys General and other bank regulators stand up for homeowners and the American taxpayer to force the banks to accept a strong settlement when it comes to their practices in American housing.

Additionally, they’ve just launched MakeWallStreetPay.org, a campaign to make sure that instead of cutting grandma’s pension, jobs, and kids’ education, we focus on the real issue of making sure Wall Street and other big corporations become full-fledge members of the taxpaying public.

In this podcast, Dylan and George go through some of the unfathomable, systemic, massive financial extractions and institutional tax avoidance by the big banks that are ultimately bankrupting our country and our future.
