Over the past two months, the videos I've done with MoveOn.org have detailed several ways to make the economy work for the many, not the few: raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, making public higher education free, busting up the big banks, expanding Social Security, making polluters pay, raising the estate tax, strengthening unions, ending corporate welfare, helping families succeed economically, and letting all Americans buy into Medicare.
But none of these is possible if we don't get big money out of politics.
In fact, nothing we need to do as a nation is possible unless we limit the political power of the moneyed interests.
