"Today. Emma is here with me in between her day trading That's just doing on one. Look guys saying no clears the way to go to the office today. She's like check. Read it this morning and nokia. And i'm like really maybe and then and then she's now. This is Emma has now Purchased the entire set and purchased a very small amount of kids stock. But like it's taking all of my willpower not to just refresh refresh refresh refresh. We will we're going to have somebody on in the next couple of days probably next week as explain what's happened but the long and short of it is some people on the Social media i mean i. I don't know if everybody knows what read it is But it is. I think people most people do. It is a Like a berle internet bulletin board type of situation and a little bit and there are a an investment group. They somehow figured out. And maybe this public knowledge. I'm not quite sure that there had been Hedge funds which had gone Short on specific companies in one instance. It was game stop in other words placing bets that some period down the line. The value of that stock was going to be less than it is. Now they make an agreement contract to buy it at a certain price that they perceive will be Less than it is at her. I should say that they're going to deliver them. I should say at a higher price in they can. They can get it between now. And then and some red editors went in and start buying the stock drove the price of the stock up which got other people on board which drove it up even further and These hedge funders ended up losing a considerable amount of money because they had to bow out. Essentially of of their short positions shorts expire on friday. I was just looking that up so they have to then by the stock in order to fulfill the promises they made to deliver them at a lower price right because for their investors. And so that means that if you bought a significant amount of of the game stock came stuck game stop stock. Then you're going to get bailed out by that hedge fund that you kinda lose it so incredible it's nice ac- regular people kind of taking this massive casino back. I'm sure there will be laws that preclude this in the future. But this is what people on wall street have been doing to regular people on a daily basis and now it's just been democratized because of the internet so short getting while you can. I guess putting out her stock tips every morning Lays jazz took to the sports show is going to be very busy. These days So impeachment as we said. The articles of impeachment was delivered the other day by From the house to the senate. And to yesterday ron paul. Excuse me rand. Paul brought a motion to the floor to require a vote on whether or not the impeachment trial is constitutional in and of itself and here. He is delivering that. This impeachment is nothing more than a partisan exercise designed to further. Divide the country. Democrats claim to want to unify the country but impeaching a former president. A private citizen is the antithesis of unity democrats blazingly appointing a pro impeachment. Democrat to preside over. The trial is not fair or impartial and hardly encourages any kind of unity in our country. No unity is the opposite of this travesty. We are about to witness if we're about to try to impeach a president. Where's the chief justice if the accused is no longer president. Where's the constitutional power to impeach him. Private citizens don't get impeached. Impeachment is for removal from office and the accused here has already left office. Hyper partisan democrats are about to drag our great country down into the gutter of rancor and vitriol. the likes of which has never been seen in our nation's history as it for what doing i don't know where Senator paul was during the past four years when we talk about rancor in israel but he missed that part someone someone should probably let him know what's been going on in the country and also what what led us to this point but let's hear a little bit more from him work with their new majorities in the house. The senate and the executive branch democrats are wasting the nation's time on a partisan vendetta against a man no longer in office it's almost as if they have no ability to exist exempt in opposition to donald trump without him as their boogeyman. They might have to legislate and to actually convince americans that their policy prescriptions are. The right ones democrats are about to do something. No self respecting. Senator has ever stooped to democrats are insisting the election is actually not over and so they insist on regurgitating the bitterness of the election. Okay posit that is such an obvious strowman. One democratic senator is insisting that the election is not over. The only people who democrats won the election. Yeah the only people who insisted that the election was over that there was a chance that it could be changed. Were the republicans they are the ones litigating the election for weeks and weeks and weeks and you know what it led to it led to millions upon millions of americans believing that the election was not over. And what did that caused the storming of the capitol building where five people died. This party is talking about rehashing things. They did hearings for years on benghazi when four people died and we all democrats wanted to do was. Hold this guy accountable. It's not just about removal from office. That's ridiculous if you commit a crime in nebraska you can still get tried for that crime. You can have to go back there. Just because he's left. The office doesn't mean that he can't be held accountable for his crimes. Is ridiculous strowman after straw men and the way he says it was. Such confidence is so infuriating is It's one it's it's it's sort of shocking and it's clear what's going on here When you can see what happened to the ten excuse me the eleven republicans in the house. That voted for impeachment. They are all now concerned that they're going to be primarily Mitch threats well mcconnell You know put up a trial balloon in the new york times A couple of weeks ago saying that he was happy about impeachment. Now it turns out that once that trial balloon starts to sink. He gets the sense that maybe he The republicans are not in the best position to throw off their base. And then the story. that was About mike pence who business insider reported that former vice president. Mike pence don't have any permanent residents in that they're supposedly moving from place to place at one point in the report implied that the pence's are in a precarious position and that they are a little bit concerned about staying in dc. Because of course. We know that this insurrection one of the highlights of it involved people running through the capital looking to either. I mean they were looking. They were saying they were looking to hang mike pence and they they had built a gallows so you literally have their former vice president trying to at least obscure where that he's living ostensibly afraid of. What is what is out there in terms of the the republican voting base. And you've got rand. Paul pretending that everything is just fine and we should just let bygones be bygones. He really is a stunning and well. But that is your your modern republican party. The fever i think seems to be still raging. We gotta take a break when we come back. We're going to talk to mike konczal. He is a director at the roosevelt institute. He's written a fantastic book.

"Secretaries they stay treasurer in US Senate and so we know that. The people of Wisconsin. At least. We're good Evan. Question is how much they were leaned. And how much they need. The implements by what has happened clearly. The Republicans have done everything they can to Gerrymander jury rig. The elections of this state But what they have done this week. In fact this last twenty four hours is so shocking so jarring That one would hope that people will remember and I think that's that's part of our duty in this time for students to keep our stuff. Oh and our second duty is to survive this economic crash And to make sure that that our communities the same our third duty is to protect democracy and to make sure that our civic democratic lights are bind. So that when this gun we can elect leaders. Who Will Care for us But our forth duty. I mean related to that third one is to take names to a member who let us down who exploited us in this time and to hold onto account and I can tell you I as a writer commentator in GonNa GonNa do that. I'm not going to forget what the State Supreme Court with the US Supreme Court. And what these legislators did it is. Unconscionable to ask grandmothers on the north side of Milwaukee get up before dawn and to get on a bus into ride through the city burning to wait in line for hours to cast a ballot amidst pandemic John. Before I let you go One thing that I've been reading about as been and this is a phenomenon. That's not just happening in Milwaukee it's happening in Tapping in Louisiana. I believe I think it's happening in Detroit. We obviously don't have a Full set of data on on these On on this but Propublica has a piece about early data. That shows that almost half of Milwaukee's counties almost a thousand cases and eighty one percent of its twenty seven deaths in account are African Americans and this is a population the county. The population is twenty six percent. Black do you have a sense of what accounts for that? Yeah a look. There's a lot of things and I'm not a public health expert. So I'll I'll put that up front but We have seen an underfunding of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County in recent years by other states certainly during the Walker years though though Scott Walker former governor was from Milwaukee County.

"In-person voter but he canceled the in book in Person Voting for Today. Republicans in the legislature immediately objected. They had mocked him. They had ridiculed him. They had attacked him. They refuse to cooperate with him on this and then they attacked him for taking action. They sued in the State Supreme Court and within hours got a state Supreme Court from a majority on that court that is closely aligned with the Republicans in the legislature. Walking what the governor had done and then the. Us Supreme Court responding to another conservative lawsuit. upended absentee voting. And so we have this horrible situation today. Where across Wisconsin tens of thousands of people Are Lining up to go to polling places. And they're doing so at a point where we believe. The majority of poll workers are not going to be working where cities across state have had to dramatically reduce their number of polling places in Milwaukee for instance. They have one hundred eighty polling places. They're to move setup because that was the number that was needed for a city of that size. They now have five in the lines to vote in those five polling places go around blocks down streets through parking lot. It is a nightmare scenario Where the county executive of Milwaukee County says? The current virus will be spread further because of the decisions made by the courts and these Republican politicians. And where the county executive says more people will die. I it is. There's so much to be just completely both enraged and just I'm shocked by. I mean the idea that the the the United States Supreme Court would look at this and not even considered you know would narrowly tailor their question In such a way so as to completely disenfranchised I mean you're disenfranchising people at about six different ways in this instance. I exaggerated the number of polls in Milwaukee but people should just contemplate for a moment one hundred eighty down to five. I mean there's no physical way for those five polling places to even provide a fraction of the opportunity to vote that One hundred and eighty would technically a fraction but it is like it is what it's all action who percent right. I mean that's basically let me give you another example just to say that this is a state wide. It's not just in Milwaukee Milwaukee where you know we've had the highest level of current by cases where We have had the highest level of death until it's of particular concern for whole bunch of reasons But in Waukesha a community with substantial Latino population They had dozens of polling places. They're down to one In communities across the state where you had many many polling places they're down to one or two And they there was a report late last week that as many as one hundred jurisdiction simply did not have borders and people to do it and it is my understanding. Correct that the There that the Republican controlled legislature is aware that there has been a more absentee ballots coming in from Waukesha which is traditionally those absentee ballots come in from. Waukesha that traditionally Republican voters is era. I think that they in his depiction of this moment. There's no question that they ramped up on.

"Just have to kind of plot along and Nancy Pelosi is just going to follow away from the spotlight. So on a to to that point about playing defense. A lot of the fights over these rules involved, you know, sort of blue-sky ideas that are, you know, Donald Trump is not going to sign, but it sets it sets a table for how Democrats might legislative they control the entire government in two years. And there was some discontent from the left about some of the things in in the rules package. They brought back these roles called go that basically mean if you're going to expand and entitlement program you need to. To finance that with new revenues. There was some discontent about how powerful this green new deal committee is going to be it's not going to be able to directly proposed legislation and we saw Alexandria Casio Cortez was one of just three members the democratic conference who voted against the rules package because they didn't think it was progressive enough. Do they have valid concerns there. The vast majority of the progressive caucus decided that they were fine with this packaging. They signed off on it. I mean, I think that people like AFC wanted what they wanted for good reasons. And I I agree with positions. But also, I think this is a victory for them ticket. These discussions on the table. I read an interview with her actually where she basically said that that conversation has now widened the green new deal is something that no one had heard of or practically no one had heard of like a few months ago. And now, it's something that people further to the left and people kind of in the center are talking about, you know, she's widened and the Overton window on the left when it's been actually it's been creeping so far right for so long. I think that the pay go rule is an interesting compromise. My recollection in John Kirkman from wrong they passed that. But also said, but we can violate this. When we want to like it. Exactly. So I think that's actually pretty masterful deal making on the part of progressives. If they said, okay, we're gonna vote for this thing that sounds really good, but we cannot comply with it for the things you really really want. So what does what they did in the past? Anyway, they waved it anyway. So, you know, John Bresnahan capital bureau chief for politico. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me. It is January twenty nineteen. And that means we're about a month into the two thousand twenty presidential election campaign. Former housing and urban development secretary who Leon Castro who also served as mayor of San Antonio is expected to announce a presidential run imminently, but more notably Senator Elizabeth Warren has formed a committee to explore a presidential run. We're joined now by Mike konczal, Mike is fellow at the Roosevelt institute where he focuses on financial reform and progressive economic policy. Mike, thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. So Mike on this show a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about these proxy fights over Beto Rorick, which seemed to be an opportunity to relitigate the fight between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton and over, you know, the level of progressivism that should be in the democratic presidential. Candidates agenda where does Elizabeth Warren sits in the fight over the future Democratic Party. You know, it's interesting so coming out of two thousand sixteen the the Democrats had three major problems to overcome. They had to reestablish their base with people of color and younger people. They have to consolidate a lot of gains. They made with suburban moderate voters, and they needed to re secure and take back the upper midwest from President Trump, and the largely did this in two thousand eighteen very well now looking at twenty twenty it's still a challenge. But it's now going to be a harder one because it needs to be done within one person leading the party is the nominee and here, I think you'll see worn emphasized her history of fighting for working class people kitchen table issues like healthcare and credit card bills and also dealing with corruption. So I think it allows her to talk a much more aggressively about what's broken with Wall Street. What's broken with people's everyday experiences, but not necessarily in the most aggressive tones? To turn off a lot of more moderate people. But in ways that might connect with a lot of the base. So I think we'll see as as she is a lot of her midwest roots and a lot of this history that she has fighting for kitchen table issues. What that will look like on? I feel like a of all the democratic presidential candidates with the possible exception, Bernie Sanders, and probably not even that exception. Warren has the most clearly defined ideology, she's really associated with a particular view of what government is four and therefore is not sort of molding her ideology to bring out into this campaign based on where the electorate is. I guess my question is to what extent are these primaries really about ideology is there are these candidates going to voters and presenting a policy plan and saying here, this is what I think government is four vote for me is that how this works. Yeah. Historically, I don't think that's the case. I also think what's interesting about Warren is that you described her as having a solid ideological background, which she has a resume what she has as a series of positions that she has. Acted on in her career like that she's worked on in academia that she's worked on in government. And I think that's the strongest argument for her candidacy is that. She doesn't just talk a good game. Right. She's actually been able to make real serious changes in American policy. I it is so early. I mean, at this point, I think is just as good a chance that we're gonna you know, determine our candidate by a sing off than it is by ideology, there's we're going to do a series of Instagram cook offs. Maybe is crazy new world out there all the rules are up in the air. I am hopeful that the discussion is about ideology, but you know, it's going to also be about race and also be about gender. I don't see how the metoo movement can't play a significant role in in what will be happening, especially if Biden enters the race. So you know, ideology and personal background. Those are always maybe the top two things that people think about and there's going to be a whole cast of characters to jet to judge by those things Ryan you actually were praising at least a portion of Elizabeth Warren agenda in your column this week saying that she had some good ideas about how the military spends money inefficiently. Even though I believe you were critical of her overall vision of how the military. We should work. I it seems in theory like she ought to be one of the best position candidates to attack Trump on a number of issues on personal corruption on closeness to industries on letting industries take advantage of the government, including defense contractors. It seems like, you know, she in many ways would be very well matched up to Trump's weaknesses. I think that symbolism and cultural stereotypes wind up counting for a lot. So I've got to say bit bearish about her chances in the primary, but I also think that it doesn't really matter all that much in so far as Warren really is an intellectual leader and the bigger picture. That's happened. Among the Democrats since their defeat in two thousand sixteen is that the Sanders lights and the Clinton nights at the elite level are totally totally aligned policy. Exactly personal. Well, that's an open question. I get a grassroots level. That's certainly true. But I've got to say Mike konczal would've played a very senior role in a Clinton White House or in a Sanders White House that is absolutely true. If you look at the advisers working. Behind these guys behind Biden or beta or what have you the truth is that there's a lot of very tight convergence. You have a strong network of former staffers who are very aware that hey, we don't know. Which of these thirty candidates will become the next president. But the folks we're gonna actually staff that administration. They're very very aligned. Now, the difficulty is that the coalition itself the electoral coalition is going to be a lot less allied. If you see a big democratic victory in twenty twenty it's going to be because you have upper middle class folks and working class folks who do not have the same core material interests, but at the elite level this party is super United in a way that ought to be intimidating for people like myself on the right, Mike. Do you agree with that assessment has Elizabeth Warren, basically already won the policy fight within the party? Even if she doesn't win the nomination. Yeah. I think so both both her and Bernie Sanders, I think it kind of closed up the space in the following twenty sixteen you now see it see particularly with healthcare where even the most moderate members are proposing a pretty expansive Medicare expansion rather than. To go back into the exchanges and bring back the individual mandate and try to increase subsidies. You know, you see it with a broad focus on things like antitrust in corporate governance, the fight for a fifteen dollars minimum wage right now is the standard policy. It's just a matter of what year you implemented where before President Obama introduced a ten dollars and ten cents minimum wage that was seen as very progressive back in twenty twelve. So there's definitely been a movement left on the economic space. I think both because of Trump's victory. I think both because of the sense that the economy is not working in a lot of core key ways, the general sense of unease, and you see it both on immigration and on globalization and on corporate profits a monopoly in platforms. So I do. Yeah. It's definitely the case that that has gone now. The question is how far and how aggressive people will push it. And I think what will matter for twenty twenty s how much it is centered in the kind of rhetoric pitch to voters on whether or not we just need some tweaking around the edges, which you'll probably hear from more centrist candidates or whether or not we need more structural reforms. And I think you'll see it particularly. Play out in the in President Trump because some people will say President Trump is going to be unique to our government. Some people will see him much more of a general symptom of the corruption that happens within government, and he'll in a weird way kind of a proxy for how that works out. I I wanna push back, and I want to hear from both on and Mike about this on the messaging about how the the economy is not working for ordinary people isn't this difficult time to be making that pitch. I mean, the the economy's certainly could be better. But I mean, the, for example, just on Friday, we got a jobs report that that far beat expectations wage growth finally kicking up over three percent isn't isn't it difficult to run on a, you know, rather than you know, Trump is corrupt. Trump is misusing our resources to run specifically on a, you know, the the economy's not working for you message at a time when the economy really feels feels good to a lot of ordinary people on I think it may feel good right now. But I think that what worries a lot of the democratic base is this. Ability of the economy and stability of the government. And I think we talked about this after the midterms, which is that the Democrats are not going to win the White House by talking about impeaching Trump as much as I personally think that would be a great idea, and they're not gonna win it talking about his charity. They're not gonna win at time him personally, they are going to have to talk about policy, but there is a certain amount of policy ties into Trump being so unstable Trump being so mercurial, I think that they can deliver a message that like we're here to take care of you like you're not gonna suffer from the winds of someone who thinks that, you know, who who answer to a stock slightest a call for the firing of the, you know, chairman at the fed like.

"And so they just have to kind of plot along and Nancy Pelosi is just going to fall away from the spotlight. So on to that point about playing defense a lot of the fights over these rules involved, you know, sort of blue sky ideas that are, you know, Donald Trump is not going to sign, but it sets it sets a table for how. Democrats might legislative they control the entire government in two years. And there was some discontent from the left about some of the things in the rules package. They brought back these rules called Pero that basically mean if you're going to expand an entitlement program, you need to to finance that with new revenues. There was some discontent about how powerful this green new deal committee is going to be it's not going to be able to directly propose legislation, and we saw Alexandria Casio Cortez was one of just three members of democratic conference who voted against the rules package because they didn't think it was progressive enough. Do they have valid concerns there. The vast majority of the progressive caucus decided that they were fine with this packaging. They signed off on it. I mean, I think that people like ASC wanted what they wanted for good reasons, and I agree with those positions. But also, I think this is a victory for them to get these discussions on the table. I read an interview with her actually where she basically said that that conversation has now widened the green new deal is something that no one had heard of or practically no one had heard of like a few months ago. And now, it's something that people I. To the left and people in the center are talking about, you know, she's widened the Overton window on the left when it's been actually it's been creeping so far right for so long. I think that the Pero a rule is an interesting compromise. My recollection in John correct me if I'm wrong they passed that. But also said, but we can violate this. When we want to like it. So I think that's actually pretty masterful deal making on the part of progressives. If they said, okay, we're gonna vote for this thing that sounds really good, but we cannot comply with it for the things we really really want. So what does what he did in the past?

Socratic presidential candidates agenda. Where does Elizabeth Warren sit in the fight over the future of the Democratic Party? You know, it's interesting so coming out of two thousand sixteen the tw- the Democrats had three major problems to overcome. They had to reestablish their base with people of color and younger people. They had to consolidate a lot of gains. They made with suburban moderate voters, and they needed to resecure and take back the upper midwest from President Trump, and the largely did this in two thousand eighteen very well now looking at twenty twenty it's still a challenge. But it's now going to.

I'm doing good. Outlook on the same vein. When it came out. The people the giants. I felt like it was coming out with a different offensive game. Like there was firing. They wanted to come out shoot is cold. My is real. Yeah. I feel like they just stop playing potential and avoid Dunlap. You say you didn't have a stay out that. So I want to point that out to you too. I think that. I just like too often. Right. The field with the ball moving a mile a minute. Pain. Defense. You know, if that is I'll be point this, and Mike konczal, pequine Levy, that's a strength. No. We can take our time with offense defense. Give players are offense had a business. What I liked it. Hey, gone. Well to help to help. The team the whole team is complimentary. When you hear Sean Payton you hear drew Brees say what's a complimentary win. I think time of possession does matter if we can have sustained drive to still listen, I would much rather the way we structured. I think a number of teams that rather have you gotta get in the end zone. You don't wanna kick field goals? You wanna get touchdown much rather? Ten eleven twelve play drive than a three or four play dry. Would that being said time of possession? We will we had the ball thirty one manage the giants had twenty nine. So you you're like, okay. So if you win anytime possession, the Davis has no excuse, and they should be well rested. Now the way the game restructured, and it's lean towards the offense to have success. Will you look at it? When all said and done, then matter really, how Machar did you give up? Okay. If you binning that's an old saying dues bamadoro break. What are you doing in the red zone? Okay. Let's say they had three or four or five dollars. Whatever. But can you bowl up at force? Appeal would the giants due to the saints, deuce? The giants should even have been the game at halftime that should have been. Seven. There were two touchdowns. Been twenty two seven, but you gotta give the giants credit. So I would say one area the states have to improve a red zone red zone offense. We have not dated Fisher this year. We were two of six thirty three percent. That's four last year. They struggle last year. But this time of the plays were there to be made you go back. Avenue will tell you. He's gotta catch that ball. They'll tell you. He had wrapped at ball against his body. Yes. It's one thing when when you can't make a play, and it's another one when you have the play, and you've just got to complete the kiss those are the things that they they can do if they have another opportunity when you talk about the saints are at their best when they have rhythm as an offense. I don't see them slowing it down sold. Their defense can get. Going to put their foot on the gas. And they're gonna go and score. They are going to try to score. Now late in the game. You'll see drew milk the clock a little bit where he looked six seven seconds. They'll snap the ball on the play clock. But other than that if they're if they're gonna out of the huddle at ten seconds there behind if they're getting out of the Hollywood ten seconds on the play clock.

"I this week scientists in Cambridge, have developed a system to fix a class of devastating genetic diseases called mighty Konjil enzyme defects. Charlie God a little boy who became a high profile case at great Ormond street hospital and who sadly died last year had one of these conditions. They Akot in structures called my to conjure which the plas als with energy don't function properly. This happens because some of them I to conjure which contain their own small piece of DNA carry genetic changes or mutations that prevent them from working properly Brunell. There might be a way to fix the problem. Pyan Gummidge from the medical research council's laboratory of molecular biology has developed a gene editing system that knocks out selectively, the defective, mighty Qendra. So they're replaced by healthy working ones, severe much diseases likely to result in the patient, not of leaving the hospital series, mobility, problems that likely have combs difficulties requiring round the clock. Most of the time and life can really be very, very difficult. And in slightly less severe cases being we'll chat bounds and struggling to live and independent life. We aimed to develop a system that would enable us to target the mutated, much contra DNA and take that percentage down from, say, ninety percent mutated down to fifty percent mutated, and hopefully someone who did have clinical disease, no longer has any more see you're talking about editing someone's Danes. We're talking about selectively, removing one entire population. Yeah. So how do that we took some genome engineering tools which have been developed in a in a different form for different purposes. Zinc fingers, zinc finger nucleus is to be precise and what these things do to target specific portions of DNA and cut it. If you cut the much Regino it gets degraded. And so if you can selectively cut the versions of much Gino that have a mutation, then usually remove them from. The total pool. And so hopefully you change the percentage of mutated verses healthy. We created these zinc fingers that would be specific to the mutation in this particular mouse that has a relatively mild form of my control disease, and it has a mutation which is very similar to human mutation. We tested it in mouse cells. If we could alter this ratio of mutates mutated, and then we put it into the mouse. So injecting into the bloodstream. The genetic instructions for for these Inc fingers using a harmless virus that's been repurpose for this kind of thing. This virus really, really likes to be taken up by heart cells. Predominantly, we measured the levels of healthy much DNA verses mutant sonogram about seventy percent and going down to about thirty thirty five. So that's well below the level of which people which symptoms. Yes, yes. Well, below the threshold cells generally liked to maintain a total number of my DNA molecules. They say it's a thousand if we. Moved, say, twenty percents of them will thirty percents of them will happen as the remainder will will be replicated. And so you'll basically every time you remove one molecule, your increasing the chance that it will be replaced by healthy one, how fine you I from doing this in humans. The beauty of approach is that it's generalize -able as every time we want to target and you mutation will we have to do is re engineer the parts that bind DNA and then will work that will take us a certain period of time a few months perhaps to design some new ones to human -tations and then to get ourselves into a position to be performing clinical trials in humans could take a little bit longer. We're hoping to have something on the concert in the next year or so. The mutation 's in people from Mike konczal disease different from each other. And if so, do you have to personalize this tool for every single person that you treat? There is a pretty broad selection. Yeah, of of much conjul mutations that the current humans and cause disease, but there are some real. Standout candidates that the pay much more commonly than others. For example, there's one which accounts are about thirty percent of all Michael DNA mutations in humans. So there is definitely going to be required level of reengineering different people in personalized medicine kind of approach. But a good portion of the population should be served by handful of these therapies. You're just doing netted might conjure DNA all them any risk to the neatly DNA..
