Robert Reich: GOP "Pro Rich" At Everyone Else's Expense

Speaking to Current TV's John Fugelsang, Robert Reich advised President Obama to challenge the Republicans' austerity economics, presenting Europe as an example of the failure of such policies. Reich also said that the GOP's anti-tax stance is all that holds the party together–and their opposition to higher taxes for the rich comes at the expense of everyone else. Watch:

REICH: “Republicans are saying, ‘No taxes on the rich, no closing of any loopholes at all. Mitt Romney’s special privileges with regard to private equity, and all of the other privileges that the rich have — we want to protect [that] … even at the expense of schools and roads and bridges and women and infants and children programs, and everything else the public needs.”
