AHCA coverage Rachel 5/4. The most jaw dropping part for me

That seems to have escaped the mass consciousness, which is understandable given we are overwhelmed standing in the hurricane eye of a greed/cruelty-based form of governing, and I feel it warrents an audience numbering in the hundreds of millions.

She had on Johnathan Gruber, an economist that helped create Romneycare and Obamcare. Intelligent, articulate, and rather young looking for a tv expert.


Gruber: "I think, Rachel, and I'm not an expert historically, I think this is one of the largest redistributions from poor to rich in one bill we've ever seen."

Rachel: ".........OK................well.............that's hard to hear............."

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS
