The Big Picture: Episode 22
Just one day after proposing cuts to social programs, the Obama Administration now says it may consider extending Bush-era tax cuts, even for the very wealthy. Thom talks to Shaunna Thomas about the White House's about face on taxes. Then, while debt collection agencies may not show any mercy for the people they call, the GOP wants to show mercy for them by softening the rules on them. Thom debates with Dan Gainor about the debt industry out of control. Finally, in honor of Veterans Day, Thom talks to two veterans of the Iraq & Afghanistan war about their experience and talks to one soldier who is turning himself in after going AWOL from his deployment.
