The Myth of Americans Living Beyond Their Means with Robert Reich
 
03:58
There is a belief that Americans got into economic turmoil because of living beyond their means. Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains why this a myth, that most Americans do not live beyond their means and that their "means" have not kept up with the economy. Where has the wealth accumulated and why aren't the top of the top being surtaxed while average-earning and the poor shoulder the burden? https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

The Hoax of Entitlement Reform with Robert Reich
 
05:01
Conservatives are touting entitlement reform as a solution to looming deficits. But, as the title of this video suggests, this is not the route to take. Entitlement reform is a distraction. Changing social security and medicare doesn't affect the deficit, and changing the rules to raise the age for recipients only shifts the burden to the next generation of laborers. So what is the solution? What is the major drain on our budget that truly does need reform, and how can that be done?

#NoFilter: Child Free By Choice - Deal With It!
 
03:13
Everyone should have children, right? Not necessarily, say members of the millennial generation, who are increasingly rethinking the notion that having children is essential to becoming a complete person. Yet there's also been a backlash, with many parents today accusing the childless of selfishness and demonstrating craven self-interest. In this week's #NoFilter segment, Ana Kasparian takes on the haters, insisting that the choice to have - or not have - children lies with individual couples alone, and busybody parents should reserve their judgmental attitudes for their poorly behaved children.

Bring Back the Basic Bargain with Robert Reich
 
06:26
Throughout much of the 20th century, the American political and economic system thrived based on a fundamental bargain - that US employers would pay their workers enough to purchase the goods and services US companies produced. Meanwhile government's role was to maintain this bargain, allowing wages and living standards to rise across the board. Today, however, that bargain has been all but destroyed, and as Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains, the petty squabbling soon to return to Washington when Congress reconvenes will prove useless at improving the economy until this compact between workers, employers and government is restored.

Republicans vs. Democrats: Why So Angry? with Robert Reich
 
03:42
Americans are more bitterly divided along political lines today than they have been in nearly a century. While the advent of social media and the shout-fests of opinionated radio and cable TV have played a role, the greatest factor driving today's political polarization is income inequality. So says UC Berkeley Professor of Public Policy and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who argues that the erosion of the middle class - and the social contract that kept those in the middle from falling too far below - has led to a search for scapegoats, feeding the demagogues, the trolls and the sowers of division.

#NoFilter - Watching P*O*R*N? The NSA May Be Watching YOU
 
03:18
In this week's #NoFilter segment, host Ana Kasparian rants about the recent revelations from Edward Snowden that the NSA has been monitoring online activity involving explicit material. The purpose? To blackmail or silence individuals who are not suspected of anything, but who may become involved in illicit activity. Along the way, Ana eviscerates former congressional law professor Barack Obama for gutting the Fourth Amendment, lauds Snowden for trying to salvage our democracy, and calls Americans out for failing to demand a rollback of the increasingly entrenched surveillance state.

Three Truths The GOP Denies About The Affordable Care Act (Robert Reich)

Why the GOP Will Never Learn with Robert Reich
 
05:01
It seems like the disaster of the 2012 elections should have taught Republicans that it's time to reform their strategy. What they were doing before, especially on social issues has been proven to clash with what Americans believe, and are on the wrong side of history. So, will Republicans take the lesson from their failure, reform, and change their strategy to keep themselves a viable party? No, of course not. Why? Who is the Republican party's base and why are they seemingly more valuable to the party than the nation's other ever-growing demographics? It is possible to reform a political party.The Democratic Party of the 1990s simply ignored its old base and became New Democrats, spearheading a North American Free Trade Act (to the chagrin of organized labor), performance standards in classrooms (resisted by teachers' unions) and welfare reform and crime control (upsetting traditional liberals). But why won't Republicans change with the times? Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains why the GOP must change and why they ultimately won't.

The Economic Elephant with Robert Reich
 
05:29
What's really wrong with the economy, and why? Unemployment is still high and job creation hasn't made a big dent this many years into the so-called recovery. Who has the best plan? Is it the Keynesians? On the other end, the Austerics? The answer is neither, really. They both neglect the economic elephant in the room - spreading wealth to the wealthy keeps buying power away from the middle class; it simply does not lead to economic recovery, historically. Perhaps looking to history can help us learn what works and what doesn't. Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) delivers a compelling argument for a 6-point plan for economic recovery. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Ending the Global "Race to the Bottom"
 
05:32
Even as the Apple Corporation is being roundly criticized for using its Irish affiliates - some of which have no actual employees - to avoid paying billions in US taxes, American elected officials continue to call for LOWER corporate taxes to make the United States more "competitive." The cause of this seeming disconnect: a worldwide "race to the bottom" in which nations compete to attract capital investment, typically by cutting corporate tax rates, dismantling regulations and driving down wages. As a result, the power of transnational corporations continues to grow while individual nations lose their capacity to control their own markets. There is a solution, however. In this video Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains how large economic entities, such as the United States and the European Union, can leverage one important bargaining chip - access to their consumer markets - to curb the power of corporations and serve their citizens, rather than the profit-at-all-costs interests of global capital. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

#NoFilter - Ana Kasparian: "Enough With The Materialism Already!"
 
03:55
Recent news stories about African-American consumers being hounded and harassed at high-end retail stores have highlighted one persistent element of racism in American society. In this week's #NoFilter segment, Ana Kasparian expands on these stories to launch a broader attack on materialism and a culture that encourages people to equate self-worth with the caliber of designer goods they own.

Jon Stewart - "Just a Comedian" or So Much More?
 
06:31
Comedy Central's Jon Stewart has bristled at suggestions that his criticism of the Affordable Care Act rollout is indicative of something ominous for the Obama Administration. In the past, Stewart has argued that he's "just a comedian," and as such should not be considered a major influencer over the public discourse. Others, like Howard Kurtz, balk at the notion and feel that it means something when a liberal like Jon Stewart directs his barbs at Democrats rather than Republicans. Who's right? That's the question our panel grapples with on this segment this week.

Breaking up the Banks with Robert Reich
 
03:02
Too big to fail? We all know that term was a misnomer when applied to big banks. Robert Reich explains why it's so important to break up the biggest banks, which have grown exponentially over the past few years. This idea of breaking up the banks isn't new, and is supported by Federal Reserve Governor Dan Tarullo, Former Citigroup CEO Sanford Weil, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, Senator Sherrod Brown, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. It's clear we can't afford another TARP bailout. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Michele Bachmann: Good Bye and Good Riddance
 
02:44
During the 2008 presidential campaign, Minnesota Congressional representative Michele Bachmann burst on to the national scene with her inflammatory rhetoric and accusations of "anti-American" sentiments against Candidate Obama and her fellow Congressmen. Today, on the heels of her failed 2012 presidential campaign, and under a cloud of suspicion for campaign finance irregularities, Bachmann is retiring from Congress. In this video, "The Nation" editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel recalls her first interaction with Bachmann, and the echoes of McCarthyism and red-baiting represented by the politics of fear, intolerance and divisiveness that have come to reflect Bachmannism. www.thenation.com @KatrinaNation Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Obama's Kill List and White Paper Memo with David Sirota

What Obama Must Do Next with Robert Reich
 
02:58
It's widely believed our biggest national problem is the deficit. It isn't. The deficit is down to about 5 percent of GDP -- what it was when Bill Clinton became President. Now, we must take on continuing high unemployment, falling wages, and widening inequality -- all of which are about to become worse as the government lays off hundreds of thousands more, cuts vital safety nets and investments, and withdraws additional billions from the economy. So what steps must the president take? Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains why the sequester must be repealed. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Costco vs. Walmart - How to Treat Employees

Costco and Walmart provide two very different models on how to pay and treat employees, with Costco giving relatively high wages and benefits and Walmart/ Sam's Club paying low wages and no benefits. Costco's model seems to be doing very well, but would it work for other businesses? What of Walmart's wages that in effect, force taxpayers to pay for health insurance for its employees?

Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren has been identified in the press as a potential thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential ambitions. But while Warren represents a powerful voice for increased regulation of the big banks, easing student loan debt and boosting Social Security, can she become the driving force that takes the Democratic Party - and the country - in a more progressive direction?

#NoFilter - Why Student Loan Debt Is Destroying the Economy
 
04:01
The rising cost of higher education and reduced funding for public colleges and universities, combined with low wages and a weak job market for college graduates has created a perfect storm of escalating student loan debt that is crushing the millennial generation's hopes for participating in the American Dream. The results on the larger economy have been devastating, with no end in sight. Host Ana Kasparian shares her unfiltered thoughts on how this crisis has reached critical mass, and what needs to be done to set things right.

#NoFilter - Parking Tickets Are A Bulls**t Regressive Tax
 
04:04
Since the passage of Proposition 13 in 1978, capping property taxes at 1% of home prices, California has lost a substantial portion of tax revenue. So how are some municipalities - like LA - making up for the lost tax dollars? By constantly raising fees and the cost of citations like parking tickets. The result is a regressive tax on the poor and middle class, who can least afford to pay the exorbitant fees and fines. The Young Turks' Ana Kasparian explains why we need to bring back fairness to taxation policies and stop sticking it to the little guy just because the wealthy don't want to pay their fair share.

55 Years in Prison for a Non-Violent Drug Offense? (Rocky Anderson)

In this video, former Salt Lake City Mayor and 2012 Justice Party presidential candidate Rocky Anderson decries the horrific social and financial consequences of mandatory minimum sentencing laws, sharing the outrageous case of Weldon Angelos, condemned to spend 55 years in federal prison for non-violent drug offenses. Even the Republican judge in the case regarded the sentence as excessive, and called upon President Obama to release Angelos. Rocky also issues a call to arms for citizens to write to the president and their local congressional representatives, calling for the commutation of Angelos' sentence and to overturn these counterproductive and costly mandatory minimum sentencing laws.

What's really happening in education politics? Would you believe it's a battle between greedy school teachers and corporate CEOs who want what's best for the children? Well, not so much. Charter schools backed by these so-called "education reformers" aren't necessarily better than standard public education- it's actually been proven that they aren't. Charter schools do however make sense as a business strategy, allowing corporations to make big money off school children. How does this strategy work? David Sirota explains.

The Point #NoFilter - Femininity Is Not Weakness
 
04:03
#NoFilter is a brand new segment for The Point with Ana Kasparian. It's an outlet to speak frankly and truthfully, without any imposed censorship about a specific topic. Femininity and the embracement of being feminine is often mistaken for weakness, or for being narcissistic or shallow. But that's simply not the case. If a woman takes a photo highlighting physical beauty, does that make her vapid? Of course not, though many mistake of judging that woman as such. Why is the commonly-held view that women must act like men to be taken seriously? Why do people judge makeup and feminine clothing, equating the use of them as the same as being stupid? Has society taught us that women must be torn down for embracing femininity? Is it better to pretend there are no gender differences, or to realize there are inherent differences as we strive for equality? Ana Kasparian makes her case.

Public Morality with Robert Reich

The push to legislate "morality" goes on, and on. But should it? Republican legislators have hammered away at trying to take down Roe v. Wade at the state level. Why is the "morality brigade" so concerned with fetuses, but so quick to cut benefits to children from low income families? Can that behavior really be considered "morality?" On that matter, is there any argument against same-sex marriage that isn't "morality" based? Why are corporations given rights that trump those of ordinary people? What about the sweeping Wall Street greed that is decimating our country's economy? Could it be...that this about who has the money and who's working for them? Why isn't the morality brigade fighting that battle?

Should People Even Go To College?
 
03:52
What are the true costs and values of college? Is going to college the catalyst of what makes a person successful and great? Or is it a glorified daycare for young adults to party? Does having a university's name on your resume mean better job prospects automatically?

The Hollowing-Out of Government with Robert Reich
 
06:12
The deadly explosion at a West Texas Fertilizer plant was absolutely preventable. The plant was had not been inspected since 1985, and heavily violated safety standards. Why did this happen? The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is the government agency set to ensure workplace safety, but it's been steadily hollowed out by Republicans, it's been denied funds, and its enforcement has been severely shaved down. This problem isn't just for OSHA though-- it's all kinds of government agencies, including the IRS. Reducing IRs enforcement is extremely counterproductive to our budget, but is that what Republicans are truly looking out for? What about taxes on corporations? Big banks? Must essential programs be hollowed out and dismantled in favor of greed? Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains why reducing, de-funding, and disabling government agencies and programs hurts the American people in the long run (and why Republicans won't stop doing it) https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

WIN - Lesbian Couple Marries in Front of WBC Hate Group
 
07:35
Kimberly Kidwell and Katie Short recently decided to hold their wedding directly across the street from the notoriously homophobic Westboro Baptist Church. Were they right to bring their message of love, tolerance and compassion to the doorstep of the group that protests at military funerals and at services for the child victims of gun violence? Or does this serve to bring more attention to the already attention-hungry WBC? Can you conquer hate with love, or does hate just breed more hate? If we all ignore the Westboro Baptist Church, will it shrivel up and go away? Who is the target audience the lesbian couple was trying to reach - members of the WBC or the larger community? Did Kimberly Kidwell and Katie Short make the right choice to use their wedding to make this stand against the hate group?

Unpaid Internships - Great Opportunities or Rank Exploitation?
 
08:11
As unpaid internships have proliferated, so have the critics arguing that these programs exploit free labor, benefit the wealthy and often fail to produce the vaunted on-the-job experience and contacts that were promised. So which is it - do unpaid internships represent valuable opportunities for young people looking to get ahead or merely a means for employers to finagle free low-skilled labor from workers with too few options to say no? This week's panelists discuss these topics and share their personal experiences with unpaid internships.

#NoFilter - On Covering Miley Cyrus Fluff vs Serious News Stories
 
02:55
The Young Turks covers a wide range of stories, from the insider DC political battles and hardcore news of war, famine and environmental destruction to celebrity fluff and the offbeat antics going on around the globe. The reality of this industry, however, is that the fluff turns out more viewers, and drives revenue. To stay in business, TYT has to strike a balance between "light" and "serious." Otherwise, our business model simply can't work. In this clip, Ana talks about her evolving role at The Young Turks and why covering Miley Cyrus and other gossip-fodder is essential to allow TYT to get out the much more important news about stories like Syria, Wall Street and the corruption of our democracy.

#NoFIlter - Ana Kasparian is No Belieber in Making Fun of Mental Illness
 
02:44
Media outlets have had a lot of fun at the expense of Toby Sheldon, the 33-year-old LA resident who has spent more than $100,000 during the past five years on plastic surgeries to more closely resemble his idol, Justin Bieber. Rather than joining in the fun, Ana goes #NoFilter, criticizing the rest of the media for piling on Sheldon, who she says likely suffers from mental illness, specifically body dysmorphic disorder.

Immigration Reform & Entitlement Reform with Robert Reich
 
07:10
Social Security today is not what it was when the Baby Boomer generation was young. Forty years ago there were five workers for every retiree. Now there are just over three. Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson have just offered another of their deficit-cutting plans -- paring back Social Security's annual cost-of-living adjustment and reducing Medicare by squeezing suppliers and cutting benefits for higher-income retirees. Do retirees have any hope? As Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains, immigration reform may just be the key. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Helen Thomas's Legacy
 
02:43
In her lifetime, Helen Thomas set a fearless, intrepid precedent for the Washington Press Corps, which was rarely if ever matched. In the Bush press corps, and even Obama's, the White House press corps swallowed what they were given, instead of doggedly questioning, demanding real answer. Thomas never forgot, not in recent years, or the decades before in which she served as a true watchdog. Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor and Publisher of "The Nation" discusses the great journalistic legacy of Helen Thomas.

Understanding the Sequester with David Sirota
 
06:33
What happens if sequestering, or budget cuts, occur? Conservatives may have you believing such a thing will mean the end of days! But that's not the case. David Sirota explains that the sequester may mean some amount of curtailing of defense spending. How could Republicans, who argue government spending can't create jobs, say that defense spending cuts would kill jobs? On what grounds can they have it both ways, and what will actually happen if defense spending were cut?

'It's All About Me' Wealth Culture
 
03:34
TV shows and celebrity culture at large seem to celebrate a lavish lifestyle, which most people are obsessed with. Why do we care about the lifestyles of the rich and famous? Why do we care about the lives of celebrities, and do we admire them or laugh at them, and what does that say about how we define our own happiness? This and much more will be discussed this week on The Point!

Are Police Secretly Tapping Into YOUR Cellphone Data?
 
08:16
Local police forces have requested - and received - the cell phone data on more than a million Americans, legally and without a warrant. Today police have a range of tools at their disposal to monitor and collect information from smart phones, repositories of some of our most personal and intimate data. Should Americans be more outraged by this evisceration of the 4th Amendment? What about Tea Partiers - where are they on this critical constitutional issue? What can be done to rein in an out-of-control surveillance state? Our panel discusses answers to these questions and more in this segment of "The Point with Ana Kasparian."
