She interviews Domenic Bozzotto (President, Hotel Workers Union) and Roger Porter (Harvard University) about Jackson's positions on the issues. Bozzotto defends Jackson's platform while Porter criticizes it. Vaillancourt notes that Jackson would support his social programs through cuts in defense spending and increased taxes on wealthy Americans.
