Robert Reich on the Fiscal Cliff: ‘We’re Back to Where We Were Before the Election’

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, a professor at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, assesses the latest from House Speaker John Boehner and the GOP when it comes to the so-called fiscal cliff and the looming expiration date of the Bush tax cuts with “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer.
