Amy Goodman talks with Becky Cain and Richard Harwood about a project to bring citizens together in six cities to discuss the problem of money in politics. Citizens will discuss the problem, meet with elected officials and others affected by money in politics, and make policy recommendations. Participants will be chosen at random, and the emphasis will be on discussion, rather than the canned question-and-answer format that reduces the value of town hall-style projects.
