    BRR Podcast News for 2021-09-17 - Reconciling Reconciliation

    Big money so worried about the people getting a fair shake from the Reconciliation Bill, they are throwing every old trope at the wall to see what sticks.  People need to know the bill is designed to REDUCE inflation, not grow it.

    Judging by the numbers the right wing media hate machine is a lucrative business if you can consistently bring the hate.  The problem is finding sponsors to fund it.  Companies that provide real products and services are few, but there's plenty of nutritional supplement and miracle cure concerns ready and willing to pay the bill.

    For this podcast I invited Substack's Letters From An American blogger Penelope Simpson to share her thoughts and ask the hard questions rational Americans have about dealing with Covid flat out deniers and skeptics.  It's some compelling content.

    I want to hear from you too, ideally someone from every state even if you are still unvaccinated.  All that is required is to be respectful and verifiably fact based.

    Just send a recording (it doesn't have to be professional, you can use your phone) to bluerootsradio@protonmail.com.  Or you can go to the BlueRootsRadio website where you will find contact links and buttons.  Feel free to write to ask questions if you need help getting started.
