Bill Moyers | The Journal: Sen. Dick Durbin and Author Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot | PBS

Duration: 53:19 (Full Program)
Program: Bill Moyers Journal #1304
Broadcast Date: May. 8, 2009

As the banking stress test results come in, the JOURNAL takes a closer look at money's stranglehold on politics. Bill Moyers speaks with Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) — who declared last week that banks "are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place" — on campaign finance reform, big lobbying and making Washington work for the people rather than special interests. And, Bill Moyers speaks with Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, author of The Third Chapter: Passion, Risk and Adventure in the 25 Years After 50 , on a cultural shift on aging in America.
