This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Oct. 16, 2013 for week ending Oct. 25, 2013

"We're now debating things, we're worrying about things that we never worried about before. The reason that's happening is because the wealthiest people in America, the most powerful people in America spend a lot of money on campaigns, on lobbying, messaging and media to create a circumstance where what we talk about is what they want us to talk about. And that's a very unhealthy circumstance."

– Interview with John Nichols, Washington correspondent with the Nation magazine, on how fringe political groups – backed by wealthy conservative ideologues – are attempting to dominate public discourse and set their legislative agendas

Interview with John Nichols, Washington correspondent with the Nation Magazine, conducted by Scott Harris

With the government shutdown entering its third week and the threat of default on the national debt looming, Senate Democratic and Republican leaders came together to propose a deal, that if accepted by legislators in the GOP-controlled House, would fund the government through Jan. 15 and raise the nation's borrowing authority through Feb. 7. But members of the “Tea Party” faction in the House initially rejected the Senate solution to the crisis and were preparing to vote on their own proposal to end the political impasse.  Story continues

immigration

Although the nation’s attention is focused on the political conflict in Washington that led to the government shutdown and concern about default resulting from inaction on raising the U.S. debt ceiling, immigrant rights activists continue to push for immigration reform legislation. Due to the shutdown, forward motion on most legislative efforts have been stalled, but eight members of Congress made the decision to be arrested with 200 other activists in front of the Capitol building on Oct. 8 in order to draw attention back to the immigration reform debate.  Story continues

Health Hazards Fuel Opposition Against Wisconsin Taconite Mine

Interview with Frank Koehn, president of the Penokee Hills Education Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

mining

The largest proposed mine in the history of the state of Wisconsin has generated opposition across a broad spectrum of the state’s citizens. If given the green light, the iron ore mine in the Penokee Hills near Lake Superior would produce taconite, a mineral used in the steel-making industry. The project is being promoted by Gogebic Taconite, or G-TAC, a company whose owners made large campaign contributions to influential Wisconsin state legislators in their successful effort to change state law to allow the mine to proceed. These regulatory changes were made despite the fact that independent scientific analyses have shown the ore to be mined contains high levels of asbestos, a substance that when inhaled increases the risk of lung cancer, mesothelioma and other respiratory diseases including asbestosis.  Story continues
