New Dealer Fossil

Rangel is an ancient leftover of the New Deal days. He is 82 years old. He has been introducing legislation to restore the draft for the entire 20+ years he has been in congress. In his dreams, Roosevelt will still be president. Nobody ever takes him seriously. The defense department and defense lobby are both totally against a reinstatement of the draft. In that way, oddly, our interests are aligned with Big Defense.
