Your Call: Jim Hightower takes on corporate hucksters and lawmakers

May 17, 2016

On the May 18th edition of Your Call, national radio commentator Jim Hightower joins us to discuss ubiquitous corporate influence on lawmakers. 

Since 1998, lobbying spending on Washington has steadily increased to more than $3 billion dollars annually. Corporate influence is spreading to state legislatures too, which have seen a 10 percent growth in lobbying interest. 

How do we put power back in the hands of the public - consumers, working families, environmentalists, small businesses, and just-plain-folks? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest: 

Jim Hightower, National radio commentator, writer, public speaker, and New York Times best-selling author
