Bernie Sanders to Chair Powerful Senate Budget Committee

Shortly before the 2016 election, Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, the Republican nominee for vice president and the speaker of the House, told a group of college Republicans why he thought Democrats winning control of the Senate would be a policy nightmare.

“Do you know who becomes chair of the Senate Budget Committee?” Mr. Ryan asked. “A guy named Bernie Sanders. You ever heard of him?”

Republicans have long feared the prospect of Mr. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist from Vermont, taking the helm of the powerful committee given his embrace of bigger government and more federal spending with borrowed money. With Democrats reclaiming the Senate, that fear is about to become a reality.

If that's the case, Bernie is more of a sellout than ever.

I'd be much more concerned if you actually approved...

Well, it's not surprising that you, Dr. Helen, should be the one to prove the international healthcare establishment completely corrupt and clueless, if not downright evil.

But, can't you write yourself? You seem to be able to get a disparaging, finger-pointing, all-knowing, self-aggrandizing comment out periodically. Or is it that you don't think Rob would allow such a marginally documented, piece of asinine pseudo-science to be posted here?

btw: Kaylee Gabak, a certified nursing assistant at The Commons, is on life support at Upstate University Hospital after becoming infected with Covid-19. Her family believes Gabak was infected at The Commons before she went on maternity leave Dec. 16.

She became infected before they started administrating the vaccine, which very possibly was the case with everyone else who became ill.

Just one of an endless number of possible explanations at this juncture, Dr. Helen. That's why real scientists call something "a fact" when they feel it has actually been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

But send it to Jon Rappaport. I'm sure he'll run with it....

PS What do you think would happen to Pfizer if the people receiving the vaccine experienced a 95% fatality rate immediately after inoculation, instead of the predicted 95% effective rate? They would be sued out of existence in a heartbeat, and everyone at the FDA would lose their jobs.

Please, Dr Helen. Go back to your tours...

Obviously.

Always a treat...

PS And there's always the danger of your head spinning and spewing vomit from contact with a rational mind.
