I seriously can't believe that idiots thought he would drain the swamp. They trusted him to betray his own social group, ie rich fucks, in favor of poor people he obviously views as inferior to himself. As the rest of us expected, he's installed industry shills in every important part of the government. This is a golden age for the exploiters.

>Other expressions of relief came from investors and executives in the pharmaceutical industry. They see Gottlieb as one of their own, with good reason. He has served on advisory boards or held directorships at six drug manufacturing companies at least, and received substantial stipends from many more.

>From 2013 through 2015 — the extent of a database maintained by the Department of Health and Human Services — Gottlieb received some $413,700 received from drug companies for consulting, speaking or other services. In 2015 alone, he collected $199,951 from eight drug companies, including GlaxoSmithKline, Squibb, Pfizer and Valeant. All are likely to have regulatory business with the FDA in coming years.

>Gottlieb also is a venture partner at the investment firm New Enterprise Associates, which claims current investments in 50 biopharma firms, 29 medical device firms and 21 healthcare services firms.

>So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Big Pharma will be happy to have Gottlieb on board. “Thank God it's Gottlieb," investment analyst Brian Skorney of Robert W. Baird & Co. told clients in a research note quoted by Reuters. "We view this as a favorable development for the sector."

You mean to tell me that a billionaire casino magnate that gets rich through pyramid schemes and scams and has NPD isn't for the common man? GASP! SHOCK! SWOON!

Even now his supporters still trust him as he removes the subsidies they depend on.

Yet another agency kneecapped

Bro, it's time to stop complaining and figure out how to fix this mess.

The real problem is that enough people voted for this man. Somehow, the white working class felt so disenfranchised that this time they voted against their own self-interests. I think if the other party has any sense, then they should figure out how to keep that from happening again in the future.

but muh libreal tears! Don't you want the taste the liberals tears as you fall into debt? Isn't that how you want to live your life, tasting the tears of liberals? You see Charles, when the liberals make enough tears, we will convert those tears into money that we will turn into kek magic that will give us unlimited money and make anime real! Why can't you understand the important of us wanting to make liberal tears! The last thing I want to see when I die as a miserable hobo is to see the God Emperor make those liberals cry. I will gladly sacrifice my life for the sake of seeing those delicious, delicious liberal tears! Don't you see... just don't you see! Why can't you see! Do you understand the power of liberal tears! Death to liberal tears, all hail liberal tears!

You have a point. It's just frustration. People in my own family straight face support him and never admit he's fucking up.

Some people aren't reachable. The best thing we can do is call our reps and tell them that gerrymandering is very important to us. This is partly why we have the system that we have. It's what allowed Repubs to take so much power and what allowed Repubs to bulwark Obama so much.

Other than getting out there and protesting and reaching those that can be reached, theres nothing much to do other than to inform ourselves and complain. It what prevents me from losing my marbles or becoming apathetic to the insanity.

What else can be done? We can hope to regain seats in 2018. We can possibly apply pressure with this Russia connection and false allegation thing of Trump on wiretapping, but then if he's impeached AND kicked out, we still get Pence who is Saudi Arabia lite. And after that, we have Ryan.

Also, there are some Repubs with some sense, but most are using Trump to further their ends. This is too good of an opportunity for them. The silver lining in this is that this presidency may wake many up to how fucked up the Repub party is to the point of such public outrage that repubs will fall in line just to ensure they stay in congress. Less and less want to get involved with this new budget and healthcare. It most likely wont pass because no one with a brain wants to put their signature on these bills.

My hope is that Trumps run is so horrendous and the disenfranchised wakes up and picks someone like Bernie to be their leader and learns their lesson like you say.

i think there's a flaw in your logic. you fail to consider that the white working class is interested in racism & bigotry, even at a financial cost to them.

The south has a record of having such an interest (see Goldwater, Wallace), but the working class's racism is just a function of another race being scapegoated as their enemy.
They hate the people who are responsible for their personal financial situation, which they've been told are Mexicans stealing jobs and Blacks driving tax-payer funded Cadillacs.

This is what we are dealing with,
People who don't believe in global warming because they've been told that such a belief will take away their jobs.
People who voted for Trump because they've been told that he'll give them jobs, but depend on Obamacare afford healthcare
