Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area

WHO WE ARE

WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

Billionaires Feast on $1.5 Trillion Tax Cut Threatening Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security - 28:51  

Billionaires Feast on $1.5 Trillion Trump Tax Cut Leaves 99% with Scraps from their Table and Threatens Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security

Only the Billionaires will win bigly with this tax cut for the rich which offers a sugar coated poisoned pill of benefits for the working class with threats to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid down the road to pay for their party. The massive cut to Corporate Taxes will be permanent while decreases in the individual rates will be eroded by inflation and then end in 8 years. The final bill also limits deductions of state and local taxes only to $10,000/yr while exempting more millionaires from paying the Estate Tax. According to all credible estimates, Republican claims that the $1.5 Trillion deficit over 10 years will covered by increased economic growth are overblown. It will leave a $1 Trillion deficit which will give the Republicans an excuse to attack Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
