This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Jan. 16, 2013 for week ending Jan. 25, 2013

"This is a chronic pattern over the last four years ... if you promise something or threaten something publicly, depending on how you look at it, then you got to go ahead and do it. And if you don't intend to follow through on your promise or threat, you shouldn't make that promise or threat to begin with. "

– Activist and author Norman Solomon, on how the 70-plus member House Progressive Caucus continually backtracks on threats to withhold votes on key legislation, such as their empty pledge to vote down health care reform legislation without a public option – and their more recent surrender to President Obama's "fiscal cliff" deal with the GOP that limited tax increases on the wealthy.

Interview with Norman Solomon, author and columnist, conducted by Scott Harris

concessions

Some of the feared consequences of going over the “fiscal cliff” were averted in the early hours of 2013, when the House and Senate agreed on legislation that increased taxes on families making more than $450,000 annually, while extending unemployment benefits, earned income tax credits, child tax credits and tuition tax refunds. The deal, however, came without addressing future sequester budget cuts, raising the debt ceiling or funding the government beyond March 27.  Story continues

From mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia to the tar sands pipelines in Texas and New England, to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking for natural gas, those concerned about climate change, public health and property rights are supporting each others' struggles.  Story continues

chavez

After winning a hard-fought re-election campaign in October, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez – recovering from his most recent cancer surgery in Cuba – was forced to miss his inauguration in Caracas on Jan. 10. Since being diagnosed with cancer in 2011, Chavez has undergone four surgeries. Although many details about the nature of Chavez’s disease and condition aren’t known, the latest cancer surgery in Havana left the populist president with a serious respiratory infection and other complications.  Story continues
