Trump hires Wall St to cut taxes for hedge fund managers he called murderers: it's not bullshit if you know the truth

" I will clean up the swamp....." D. Trump

Today's headlines : "Steve Mnuchin, a private equity investor, hedge fund manager and Hollywood financier, and billionaire Wilbur Ross, who heads a private equity firm, appeared on CNBC and confirmed their nominations to be Treasury secretary and Commerce secretary, respectively."

Who better to clean out the cesspool that those who created it?

Mussolini, in the Doctrine of Fascism/1932, write that fascism is the "merging of the interests of the state and the corporations." Two recent Presidents who lost the election of the People have now put Wall St in charge of.............Wall St. Paulson, of Goldman-Sachs oversaw the worst financial collapse in 80 years, having totally misjudged the situation, and then demanded hundreds of billions to bail the banks out. Mnunchin, formerly of Goldman-Sachs, continues the corporate takeover of the US government by men who have lost the popular vote and promised to clean up the mess: they have hired the very men who caused it to clean it up. Fascist logic?

"When fascism comes to America, it will come wearing a cross and waving the American flag." Sinclair Lewis in It Can't Happen Here.

He also said that fascism would deny being fascist and instead call itself Americanism.

Here is today's proof that the US is a fascist state: "But there's a complication: Instead of cracking down on the pharmaceutical companies that fueled the boom in opioid abuse, lawmakers are rewarding the industry. No health care-related bill of this size could move through Congress without the support of Big Pharma. The authors of the 21st Century Cures Act earned the industry's support by including regulatory rollbacks that drugmakers have long sought and creating cheaper and quicker paths for drug approval by reducing safeguards. It's as if the fire department had to pay off the arsonist to get permission to put out a fire."

Here is the response from progressive watchdog, Eliabeth Warren:

"The 21st Century Cures bill is a massive boon to Big Pharma. Once a bipartisan bill to encourage medical innovation, Big Pharma cronies have loaded it down with handouts and special favors for pharmaceutical corporations, Republican donors and the gun lobby.2 Republicans and corporate Democrats are now trying to ram the bill through in the lame-duck session of Congress.

If Democrats want to show that they are serious about changing a system rigged against everyday Americans, they need to start by fiercely and unanimously opposing this bill.

Stand with Sen. Warren: Stop the Big Pharma giveaway bill. Click here to sign the petition.

This legislation includes a giveaway to the gun lobby and slashes money from Medicare and the Affordable Care Act. It includes barely a drop of funding for the National Institutes of Health, even though Republicans have been choking off medical research in America for years. But the worst of all is the giveaway for Big Pharma:3

  • Bribery. The bill makes bribery easier by helping Big Pharma hide payments or rewards to doctors who prescribe their medication, even from law enforcement.
  • Special favors. A major Republican donor and financial supporter of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will be allowed to sell medical therapies without waiting for a safety check from the Food and Drug Administration.
  • Fraud. If this bill passes, Big Pharma could market drugs as cures for all sorts of symptoms, not for the uses that were approved by the FDA. That sort of fraud puts people at risk.

Corporate puppets in Congress who support this bill are hiding behind misinformation." No sh*t!
