Interview with Richard Eskow, senior fellow with Campaign for America's Future, conducted by Scott Harris
With the clock ticking toward an Aug. 2 deadline to raise the current $14.3 trillion U.S. debt ceiling, White House and congressional negotiators have yet to come up with a deal to avert what most economists agree would be a disaster for the American and world economy. Last week, President Obama and GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner, reached an impasse on a deal they were negotiating behind closed doors that would have reduced the federal debt by $4 trillion over ten years. Although Obama had agreed to make substantial cuts to social safety net programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, Boehner was unable to get support from his House Republican caucus to end tax breaks for the wealthy and take away tax subsidies from profitable big businesses, including the oil industry.

Elouise Cobell, a member of the Blackfeet tribe, was the lead plaintiff in an effort to end the abuse, mismanagement and outright fraud that resulted from the U.S. government’s control of 100 million acres of land and its natural resources that were held in trust for individual native Americans after passage of the Dawes Act in 1887. Initially, the federal government denied all these claims, asserting it had no legal responsibility and owed nothing to the native American litigants. Story continues

The 56-year-old Chavez returned to Caracas on July 4, quashing rumors spread by his opponents that he had died or was terminally ill. Story continues
