President Trump’s hoping to fast track his renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement with a promise that he has the best plan for American workers. Arthur Stamoulis says the plan falls far short of that promise,  and a lot more work is needed for a NAFTA replacement to benefit working people and the planet.

Nancy Altman

On August 14, 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law the Social Security Act. It remains one of the most important pieces of legislation in American history. Few can  speak better to that than Nancy Altman. Countering the many myths used to discredit Social Security, she says it’s time to fight to increase, not cut, the program.
