Yesterday, I visited the Citizens’ Revolutionary Week event, a big event being held in Washington, D.C. hosted by far-left activist Ralph Nader, a former candidate for the Democratic Party presidential nomination.
Karen Friedman is the Pension Rights Center’s (PRI) executive vice president and policy director. Among the Pension Rights Institute’s efforts over the years, PRI joined with other retiree, employee, and consumer groups to launch Retirement USA, a liberal coalition dedicated to transforming the nation’s private retirement system.
Friedman explains how PRI manipulated the media and lobbied lawmakers and regulators to achieve their goals, including some unorthodox yet delicious ways of convincing lawmakers to increase entitlement spending.
Check out this video I made of some of the highlights from today’s events at yesterday’s Citizens’ Revolution Week session, and make sure to keep on checking the blog for more highlights as the week goes on!
