Robert Scheer presents his new book, "The Great American Stickup: Greedy Bankers and the Politicians Who Love Them".
From a legendary journalist, this is a muckraking expose of the bipartisan origins of the greatest financial scandal. Scheer revisits those years of business lobbying when the politicians of both parties rolled over for the banks, in order to show that this fiasco could have been anticipated and that there are culprits responsible that should be named and who continue to wield enormous power over our lives.
