The Left Needs a McConnell

The verdict for this episode is: no one in Congress is really fighting for the people.

In this episode, I discuss how no one on the left fights with the skill and determination as McConnell. Yes, he is unethical and immoral. But he delivers for the wealthy and corporations way better than anyone thinks of delivering for the people.

Predicting the 2020 Election
