You make it sound like the Legislative Branch should just fall in lock step with the President. Remember that those "scumbag politicians" were also elected by the people. If there's enough of them that they can disrupt Trump's agenda then doesn't mean they actually are representing the will of the People? At least the will of those constituents that elected them?


We sure as hell didn't vote them in to see investigation after investigation over a foreign government trying to influence our elections. A little research will show it's been happening for a long time now. The only reason to bring it up now is to stall legislation that matters is how I see it. Tell me one politician that was elected based on them investigating Russia interference. I'll wait.

WOW! This is insane! A whole 125 people were surveyed?! Trump surley is failing. You nailed him with this one. Way to go buddy!!!!!



Well you sound like you're on top of things. So 125 is not a statistically significant sample? And by what measure did you determine that. Do you happen to know the size of the population they represent? I'd like to know. Sincerely.

The GOP is pushing through destruction of American HEALTHCARE right now.

They're busy WORKING.

... Just not Trump and friends. HE can't seem to convince people his "ideas" are bueno.


America's healthcare was destroyed once the ACA was passed. If your upset about your health insurance right now, blame Obama and company.

The CEO/Shareholder/Investors stocks continue to increase in value, but they're not happy. Poor babies.

Not true. We are losing jobs when they are happy and taking government handouts, paying no taxes and hiring people over seas. Like the past 10+ years. We are talking huge corporations gere not small and midsize businesses.

CEO's are the ones who increased the gap between the middle-class and themselves. They are at the top of Mount Greed. So if they are unhappy, that's a good thing.

That's what the sound-bite parroting ill-informed like to believe. The fact is, our healthcare system has been collapsing WELL before ACA. The burgeoning amount of unpaid services was bankrupting hospitals and they were closing at an increasingly alarming rate. ACA was an attempt to slow that down. But very few people choose to look past the politics and see what the real problem is. But don't worry. You'll see it soon enough at a hospital near you.

Had to opt out of medical coverage sucks. I make a decent wage too just can't afford it.

Just glad Trump made it so I don't have to pay for everyone elses while I can't even afford my own, how idiotic was that system?

But this HAS to be "fake news", right? A PROGRESSIVE hit piece?

NOPE



"This was not a granola-eating crowd of Democrat entrepreneurs. It's a cross-section of the business community, including some who are quite pro-Trump," he said.



I find this part rather comical.

Yale CEO summits are invite only. I have never been to one that I would call a "cross-section of the business community".

Closed door circle jerks would be much more apt.

If you dissent with the "organic discussion flow" (if you disagree with anything), don't expect an invitation the following year.

It's really not idiotic from the larger perspective. So now you have no health insurance. If something happens and you have to go to the hospital, then what? They treat you. But who covers that? Who pays for that?

Are you that dense? 125 people represent 125 people. Themselves. There is over 300 million people in this country, you do the math.

Just what I thought. Reading comprehension issues, huh? Not to worry. I'll try to explain it. This was NOT a public opinion poll. It was a survey of CEO's. And higher-level CEO's at that. There are NOT 300 million CEO's. So, as you can see, it's you. my friend, that has a density issue. A survey/poll represents the population from which it's drawn. Not the general population.

OK, so i know he has alot of $, which means he must have been successful at some point in his life. He must have done SOMETHING right?

But getting to know him (not personally, just thru his tantrums and twitter) makes me believe that he is the type of person that cannot possibly be successful...at ANYTHING.

I always wondered how he became so rich. Is it bc he is very good at just saying what people want to hear? Nothing seems to follow my thinking...that he is actually bad or failing except this article. CEO's seem to see what I am seeing.

I truly believe him to be harmless (but his supporters harmful) but wonder about this one. How does this dumb@$$ do it?

Bully: a blustering, browbeating person; especially : one who is habitually cruel, insulting, or threatening to others who are weaker, smaller, or in some way vulnerable tormented by the neighborhood bully

> Starting with his father. Slum lord, graduating to corporate raider, greenmailing, etc. Legal, yes. Ethical, depends on which side of the money you stand.

Where he really made money is when the banks foreclosed on his casinos. Not wanting to lose that money, the banks came up with a plan to market Trump (name and person) as a brand.

You might be having a little of that reading comprehension issue too....




A stunning 50% of the CEOs, business execs, government officials and academics surveyed at the annual Yale CEO Summit give Trump an "F" for his first 130 days in office.


It wasn't just a survey of CEOs. It was of CEOs, business execs, government officials and academics... How many of those 125 As were actually CEOs, I would bet all. How many of those Fs were professors etc...I would be all.

In the end it doesn't matter since the story is CEOs give Trump a F, but the reality is they lumped progressives from "academics" and of course government officials that just love BIG government ideals in the mix of the survey..

Talk about stacking the deck towards one's own agenda....

It doesn't matter what their job tittle is. When you boil it all down it is 125 people. A tiny segment of the population, a tiny segment of the CEOs in this country. A meaningless poll posted to CNN meant to sway public opinion. Just like all the pre-election polls. BS.
