Arianna On CNN: 'This Is The Time For The Government To Step In'

Arianna appeared on Ali Velshi's Your Money on CNN alongside Mort Zuckerman and Eliot Spitzer to discuss how the United States can get a handle on unemployment.

"This is the new consensus that's emerging, beyond left and right, that the government needs to do more when it comes to a payroll tax holiday, for example, which would allow companies to hire more," she said. "It needs to do more when it comes to infrastructure spending. Our infrastructure is crumbling and the government can borrow at below three percent. Construction workers are idle... This is the time for the government to step in."
