9/28 How Puerto Rico is Being Strangled w/ Nelson A. Denis

September 28, 2017

Gary Cohn can’t promise middle class families they won’t pay more in taxes.

Journalist and historian Nelson A. Denis (@NelsonADenis) joins us. The history of the Jones Act and Puerto Rico as a colony and shock doctrine target. PR’s obscene lack of representation. What else is behind the Trump admins response.

On the fun half – Dave Rubin and his dumb libertarian hanger-ons are afraid to debate economics. Trump keeps saying theres a Senator in the hospital. Tom Price’s avaricious grubbing of tax-funded private jets is something Trump will look in to. Supreme Court to take another shot at public unions. Plus your calls and IMs.
