Social Security: The People's Pension
Social Security, the life line of support for millions, is under attack these days, even from Democrats. Eric Laursen is the author of The People's Pension: The Struggle to Defend Social Security Since Reagan. He talks here with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about why the Right Wing is so opposed to Social Security -- and has been against it since the days of the New Deal.
