“This is a movement that is not going to stop,” says filmmaker Michael Moore of the uprising in Madison, Wisconsin (and across the country—all 50 states held solidarity rallies this weekend). “I knew sooner or later people would say they've had enough.”

Michael joins Laura in studio for part one of a two-part conversation about the war on working people in America. He notes that it started in 1981 with Reagan's attack on the air traffic controllers, and it's mostly targeted the poor, as with Clinton's welfare reform. But the attacks on middle class families have finally reached a point where people aren't going to take it anymore.
