I will still say this again and again because it seems like we’re on to phase 2 of whatever plan the White House cabinet is focusing on:

Don’t let Bannon and Miller out of the news or out of sight

And, the whole shake-up for the intelligence leadership should still be something to pursue and investigated.

Win for Big Pharma

I guess we won’t be seeing government negotiated reduction or regulation of drug prices any time soon.  What about stopping price fixes or big pharma from raising the cost of medicine by 400x? Why would Trump cave-in s0 easily? This is out of character and would seem like some backroom dealing of some sort.

Since the whole Republican’s “won’t vote for a Supreme Justice” when Obama tried to introduce Merrick Garland during the end of his presidency, it seems to embolden Republicans to do even more.  Would this include changing all and any rules to ensure they get what they want?  Isn’t this in violation of our democracy?  I think we’re heading into unknown waters in politics but we should stand-up to unprecedented actions that doesn’t benefit the country as a whole.
