About this Episode

Welcome to The Schmidt Show

The Green New Deal is a lie from top to bottom, beginning to end. Even the title; it's not about being "green," it really isn't anything "new," and sure as heck isn't a deal. In this weeks episode we break it down for you and show you how it's more about wealth distribution than enviornmental concerns. If you are looking for a passionate and engaging look at politics with a side order of not taking ourselves to seriously you are gonna love The Schmidt Show.
