Noam Chomsky : Democrats are really moderate Republicans

Noam Chomsky, the famous political commentator and MIT professor emeritus, has long said, "There used to be a kind of a quip that the United States was a one-party state, with a Business Party that had two factions: the Democrats and the Republicans." But now, he says, there is still one party, but with only one faction. "It's not Democrats, it's moderate Republicans," he said. "Today's Democrats have shifted to the right." Find out what else Chomsky had to say about the state of American politics and the current government shutdown in his sit-down interview with RT's Anissa Naouai.
