Dylan Ratigan explains further
Posted by Jill | 6:23 AM
Dylan Ratigan called into his own show yesterday to further explain what he meant by "extracted" in his epic rant the other day:

It's unusual for anyone on the airwaves to point out the elephant in the room, which is that corporations and moneyed interests are able to buy themselves a tax code, and it's this corrupt, bought-and-paid-for tax code, that the Tea Party is out there defending.

Ratigan is a valuable voice, because his reputatin is not one of being closely aligned with either party, and since neither party is untainted by corporate campagn cash, his Howard Beale moment should be widely viewed.

Corporations are people, my friend.
