Consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader spoke with Democracy Now host Amy Goodman at 92Y on June 6, 2013. In this clip, Nader gives his frank assessment on the lack of progress on a minimum wage increase, as well as a strong criticism of President Obama.
On lack of results for a minimum wage increase, Nader reiterated a question he previously posed to Amy about the President, asking, "Has there ever been a bigger con man in the White House?"
"The one ingredient you want when you vote for somebody...it's their moral courage and the fire in the belly. That's what makes all the difference in the world."
