Thirteen Republican men repeat Hilary’s mistake

They went into a room to write a health care bill. Didn't need any women. For diversity they had Ted Cruz, still famous at Harvard for only allowing Ivy League grads into his law school study group. A man of the people. Didn't need to hear from the public. What do we know about health care anyhow?
