Rep. Chris Deluzio is a freshman congressman whose agenda includes workers’ rights, domestic manufacturing, and improved rail safety, concerns at the forefront of his constituents’ minds, and many others in Postindustrial America.

During our discussion with Deluzio, we talk about the growing renewable energy economy and how the fallacies of trickle-down economics continue to pervade the talking points of many lawmakers.

The Iraq war veteran also sounds the alarm about the threat of domestic extremists, their supporters in the Congress, and what motivates them.

Deluzio has written about extremism for Postindustrial and been critical of Capitol Hill lawmakers who stoke, and feed off, their dangerous delusions.
