This week’s Ring of Fire, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder: Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

Stepping into the Ring of Fire this week:  we’ll be talking with Larry Hanley, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union, about how the attacks on unions in Wisconsin are just the tip of the iceberg in the national attack on unions and union workers.

Dr. Boyd Haley will join us to discuss the rising autism rates in America, and why the CDC and pharmaceutical industry have been working around the clock to rule out the likely suspects causing this rise.

Linda Lipsen, the president of the American Association for Justice, will tell us how corporations are putting American consumers in danger in order to save, literally, a couple dollars.

And we’ll be talking with John Amato, the founder of Crooks and Liars, about the Republican hypocrites who are trying to take healthcare away from needy Americans, while enjoying free health coverage for themselves.
