AOC's Chief-of-Staff says the Green New Deal was about restructuring the economy - not combating AGW

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.

Many of us were highly critical of AOC's Green New Deal because it DIDN'T DO A FUCKING THING ABOUT global warming - the most critical issue we face today. It was all about paying for single payer and other highly suspect social programs that are not threats to all life on Earth.

Now they have admitted it.

Springsteen releases pre E Street Band version of 'Spirit in the Night' on his Youtube channel




On May 1, 1973 Bruce Springsteen and his band played the 2,000-capacity Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles as the opening act for Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show and New Riders of The Purple Sage. The band, which wouldn’t be known as the E Street Band until September of 1974, featured original drummer Vini Lopez as well as saxophonist Clarence Clemons, bassist Garry Tallent and pianist Danny Federici. The Boss unveiled professionally-shot footage of “Spirit In The Night” and “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” from the Ahmanson Theatre concert on YouTube.

“Spirit In The Night” features Springsteen on piano, while “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” sees Bruce playing acoustic guitar. Bruce Springsteen recorded a studio version of the former for inclusion on his 1973 debut album, Greetings From Asbury Park, which came out four months before the concert in Los Angeles. A studio version of “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” would make it onto The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle when the LP was released in November of 1973.

Rocketman (Elton John) or Yesterday (Beatles) - which should I take the SO to see?

Which one is better?

Which groups of people would be exempt from Medicare For All?

Team Sports/Pro athletes for one. There is no way Tom Brady or LeBron James is going to a Main St physician. If private insurance is illegal would private docs be illegal?

What if big companies followed suit and hired their own medical staffs? Would a Google clinic be illegal?

Would Congress be on MFA? I seriously doubt that.

Of course the military would not be on MFA.

Would medical tourism be illegal? Let's say the best specialists all relocated to the Caribbean to charge 10x the federal reimbursement rate for MFA?

The rich will never stand in the same line with the average Joe.

MFA needs to be discussed before it is adopted wholesale by the party.
