I caught Sherrod Brown talking economic sense for the United States the other day and the need to restore our manufacturing base and do something about putting Americans back to work. Here's Thom Hartmann on Russia Today addressing the real problem with our economy as well -- the jobs crisis.

From Thom's You Tube Channel:

So raise the damn debt-ceiling - and get on with addressing the real crisis in America - the crisis created by our insane so-called Free Trade policies and treaties, and greedy corporate CEOs with too much power.

Amen brother. It would be nice to see the politicians having their phone lines burnt up over this issue as well instead of just for calls for all of them to compromise with GOP hostage takers on the debt ceiling.

Can you help us out?
