Save America! Retire Mitch!

Do you like sending a letter for 50 cents or $8.50 at Fed Ex? Do you like affordable healthcare? Do you like worker safety or fair wage? No? What about tax breaks and corporate welfare state for really rich companies? Do you like tax breaks for Russian oligarchs or Chinese paper mills in Kentucky? Yes! Then you are probably Mitch McConnell and need to be retired! I approve this podcast
