Good morning- welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up weâ€™ll talk with consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader about the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventionsâ€¦..Nader says taxpayers should not be funding those conventions----
But first one listener comment about yesterdayâ€™s discussion with investigative reporter Trevor Aaronson on the use of paid political provocateurs at the Republican National Convention in 2008. Hereâ€™s what one listener had to say.
Ralph Nader is a consumer advocateâ€”a former presidential candidate and author of many books including his latest- Getting Steamed to Overcome Corporatism: Build It Together to Win?
Nader says the two major political parties will be taking more than 18 million dollars in taxpayer money to pay for their upcoming conventionsâ€”and he says that the parties should be paying for their own conventions---he joins us live on the phone. FMI nader.org and Vote Nader.org
