Taibbi, Kuttner Discuss Health Care, Financial Reforms with Bill Moyers

What will Friday nights be without Bill Moyers after he retires from PBS in April? I don't even want to think about it. In the meantime, please enjoy this discussion on topics ranging from health care reform to financial sector regulations. My favorite moment is when Rolling Stone magazine's Matt Taibbi posits that a sound electoral defeat for Democrats in 2010 and 2012 might be a good thing, a learning opportunity, and Robert Kuttner of The American Prospect replies with classic disillusionment "Boy, you are younger than I am!"

Watch the discussion here.

Once you reach the Bill Moyers Journal website, you might want to do yourself a favor and learn about Boston community organizer Steve Meacham and the amazing work of his organization City Life/Vida Urbana. It's hard to be cynical about the human race, but it can truly be a reservoir of goodness, as shown by Meacham and his collaborators.
