Author David Sirota, a veteran political strategist and Capitol Hill operative, has released a new book called "Hostile Takeover" showing how political corruption is creating policies that are intensifying America's middle-class squeeze. Now, with corruption scandals dominating the news and with wages stagnating, pensions being slashed, and health care costs skyrocketing, America is at a boiling point - just in time for the 2006 elections. Will the hostile takeover of America's government by Big Money interests take center stage in the upcoming campaign season? And what are the particularly odious policies that could be economic wedge issues in the upcoming campaign?
