Tavis Smiley
and Professor Cornel West join Morning Joe to discuss their new book “The Rich and the Rest of Us,” what they learned from their so-called “Poverty Tour” around the U.S., and why they believe the politicians haven’t made the country’s poor a priority. Joe Scarborough is brilliant and refreshing. His questions focus on: “The haves and the have-nots: the great wealth divide,” “Living paycheck to paycheck: the struggle of poor Americans” and “The poor doesn’t have a lobby on K-Street.” Smiley and West frame poverty in America as a moral issue. And the take-away from the discussion: the whole panel agrees. I do, too.
