Rep. Frank Nails Republicans on Health Care and Contempt for Blue Collar Americans

Rachel Maddow got more than she planned when her guest, Rep. Barney Frank, basically got everything off his chest when it comes to a bridge loan for the auto makers. What impressed me was Maddow's ability to let her guest talk, something rare now in radio and television interviews, getting the guests point of view instead of being the sounding board of the interviewer.

Here Frank talk about the obvious problems health care has caused employers in the U.S., and the revelation that there is a white vs blue collar double standard by Republicans. Strange, didn't the Republicans say they were standing up for the poor working stiff out there? Their contempt for blue collar middle class workers is something new to the dialog, and should be pointed out often.
