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

This week on Ring of Fire: former secretary of labor Robert Reich will be joining us to discuss the great switch by the super rich – how the wealthiest people in America went from paying taxes to lending the government money.

We’ll also talk with documentary film director Bill Haney about a film he and Bobby did together called “The Last Mountain.”

We’ll hear from author Chris Mooney about how Republicans, and even some Democrats, are able to completely ignore things like science, logic, and reason so that they don’t have to change their own beliefs.

And best-selling author Frank Schaeffer will be joining us to talk about how today’s conservative mantras – government is bad and corporations are great – were all started by the religious right decades ago.
