Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies



Saturday 12:00 Noon Central/1:00 PM Eastern

 

Call In, talk and/or Listen: (646) 929-2495


President Obama and John Boehner are at an impasse on the Fiscal Cliff negotiations. It seems like congressional Republicans are in the mood to defy Americans one more time.

While it is true that Republicans retained the house, it should be noted that they lost 8 seats and the popular vote. In other words, inasmuch as there are 33 more Republicans in the House than Democrats, more people actually voted for Democrats. Absent gerrymandering, the house would have switched. The Senate became more Democratic as well.

This was a decidedly left of center election throughout the country with several states legalizing marijuana and either supporting same sex marriage or defeating attempts to make it illegal. One would think that John Boehner would approach negotiations giving those realities with humility with the realization that the majority of the country is with the President.

Let us talk about how we can best influence action to ensure the irresponsible behavior of the House does not damage the working middle class. How should we exert our will on these politicians that are in fact our servants? Call the show let's talk about it.

Following are a list of my blogs that will be probative.


Please call me at (646)929-2495 let us discuss these issues. I want to hear and discuss ALL points of views.
