In a sweeping analysis, Dobbs looks at every aspect of the decline of the middle class, from a lack of political representation to America's corrupt health-care system. He demonstrates that the gap between America's newest haves and have-nots is not merely financial, but instead involves the erosion of education, employment, government, and community. Dobbs proposes a series of measures to resolve each issue and incite people, whose future is being mortgaged to benefit a powerful few, to preserve their rights and dreams.
War on the Middle Class is provocative, incendiary, and bound to be widely discussed; it's the perfect book to establish the terms of debate for future elections.

Lou Has Got It Mostly Right !
This review is admittedly partisan because I am a big Lou Dobbs fan, one of the few media pundits that dare to speak truth to a corrupt and broken system.
This is one of the most inspiring works that I have read in years. Lou has his own ideas about what it will take to restore the meaning of "We The People" to our government. However. he does not hesitate to promote the work of others who have ignored the attacks of special interest groups and implemented programs that have addressed some of our most horrific problems.
Lou concentrates solely on national issues and there is no discussion of any of our current foreign military adventures. He does not blame either of the two majority political parties for the current problems but he does point out that the use of partisan wedge issues by both parties has blocked any real debate on key problems. Primarily, the corruption of special interest money on all branches of our government is the over whelming factor.
An inspiring 4 1/2 hour program that only Lou could do !
