How can America's middle class get back on their feet?

This morning, Demos, the non-partisan public policy research organization, is set to release its new report, "The Great Unraveling: A Portrait of the Middle Class."

The report shows how the middle class is being cornered by rising costs and illustrates how economic prospects are diminishing for America's youth.

Tamara Draut, vice president of policy and program for Demos, joins Christine Romans today to discuss the organization's findings and to explain why she thinks that the Obama administration needs to develop bold, short-term measures to help the country's middle class.

    I suggest that some kind of tax or tariff be put on those companies that send jobs to other countries to make it more or equally as expensive as leaving them here.
