Capitalism has had its day btw, Trump will take the USA under and threaten the world with his warped view of climate change and profit making, fracking fossil fuels and selling souls to big pharma, he has zero morals, integrity or basic understanding of human nature other than the dollar and himself

Trump truly scammed a lot of people. By the time they admit to themselves the BIG mistake they made It will be too late.

The next democratic president will have a big job cleaning up the mess Trump is making.

He's letting the Army DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO

And he will let the corporations do what they want to do...just lie and try to hide it better

Some president

All I can say is:

WE TOLD YOU SO!




Trump is not for his base; he's not for anyone. He's a corporatist, and he will continue letting corporations make decisions that his White House is either too lazy or too incompetent to make, to the detriment of Americans, whether they voted for him or not.

So you are all fluffed up over a Business Insider OPINION article that lacks any meat from the actual plan? I will save judgement when I actually get to read what is actually in than believe someone who is most likely a Progressive Trump hater that is in a state of living with a permanent case of TDS!

Trump had meetings and discussion about this early in the year and nothing has changed, the bidding deals will still be done in secret, and the government will not come down on the price fixing, that's done globally, and people will still pay a price that will depend on their insurance and how good or bad their insurance company will be.
One thing Trump did try to get was that companies should produce in the US..of course everyone should know what that will mean. $$$$
In a word, overall the government will not intercede with the free market, and that's the American way..is it not?

Haha...my home brings in over $100k per annum, I'd be happy to pay more tax for a fairer society

I hate greed, selfishness and ignorance which is what runs this poor sad sorry world, you people are so far behind the awakening I'm wondering if you'll ever wake in the good ole US of A...Look at Spain, Italy, UK, Germany and many many more countries around the world that oppose austerity and the far right agenda...your time is up, a world revolution is happening, left wing and socialism is the only way forward if peace is to be achieved in this world...the right will just end up killing us all if the left don't take the reigns...Trump with his awful MOAB is a sign of things to come

I FEEL like I'm watching "The Emperor's New Clothes" in real life.

The GOP and Trump's adoring FANS don't want REALITY...they want Trump's FANTASY.

This is very disappointing. Doesn't emptying the swamp have something to do with not allowing the corporations to run our country. I'm disgusted but not surprised. Meet the new boss . . .
Nope, it was all a euphemism for swapping parties. Trumps a big businessman, why would he ever diminish corporate control?

Yawn!!!

Take a look at the UK, socialism is booming with the youth...and a future is based on youth, not the old indoctrinated guard who have absolutely no idea what socialism is...Haha...they even think its communism lol, raflmao



Perhaps so. Another reason the UK is doomed.

But you are right, socialism is awesome.

In fact, if you hurry you can move to a socialist paradise of Venezuela and eat zoo animals in an attempt to stave off starvation while you run from all manner of people trying to kill you.

You will love it!

Why is that then?

Pray tell Bill?

What has ATS become?

Ok, you've edited some meat into your post...Watch with extreme interest my friend the movement in the UK, you will see something that hasn't happened in my lifetime (48yrs), someone who has the morals, integrity and honesty too take socialism to another level, neoliberalism has been in play since Regan and Thatcher (70's) and we have a 35yr left wing veteran pushed to the front of a political movement...expected to get annialated in the GE he actually gained 32 seats instead of losing 100...you have no idea what's going on outside of the USA...Just watch and learn!

You might want to reread what I posted?

I don't support Dem's or Republicans. Trump or Hillary or Sanders for that matter.

How can you in fact have a meaningful discussion about documents that are not available and you have not read? You can't and that was the substance of my post.

Excuses for Trump????


The swamp is still very smelly and the stink is coming from both sides of the aisle.

Free market guarantees the lowest prices possible. We all know GOP is against government setting prices rather than market setting prices. How is this a surprise to anyone?

Politicians selling out to globalists leaders in the EU, erosion of borders, and a drive toward socialism.

Why not just head to a socialist paradise like Venezuela? It is already the paradise you desire.

Sorry you are said that ATS isn't just a bunch of socialist cultural Marxists.

Perhaps you would be more suited in universities where they make sure you are in a safe space and no one questions your terrible system of socialism.

Got it, Frank?

Your source is The new york times (lower case on purpose)!
An unnamed source as well (imagine that)!
Your next source will be Sorcha Fail and Wiki.
Mods, this needs to go to the HOAX bin.

I like your style just not your understanding

The right is where "they"
want you, it's what suits their agenda...whenever there is a crisis, MSM event, Terrorism, environmental meeting, drug deal (big pharma), G8, G10, weapons deal (Saudi), fracking, banking ( Libya, Egypt and trying Syria) and many other immoral acts that happen, its generally right wing, socialism as I know it is fair from start to finish, if you take from an economy then you put back into that economy no ifs no f******* buts, what's the problem with that? does it scare you? educate everyone to the same level and you wont get the extreme differences we have today, I always look at who is going to gain out of what happens....it generally points to the perpetrator


I feel sorry for the less fortunate than myself and will help them in any way possible, I was a homeless teen, I was a young father working on building sites for £20 a day in the 80's living in 1 room trying to bring a child into this world with very little help, 3 of us in 1 room for over a year, you people make me so angry, you have absolutely no idea what its like at that end of the system feeling hopeless, depressed, neglected, unwanted and vilified for a system that's designed to fail the poor, I've paid taxes and NI for 30yrs and know what is going on...I just wish everyone else did

I thought Trump WANTED to give American's healthcare with HEART?

Instead, it APPEARS, he' wants big pharma to sell that heart at auction



...the Trump White House is about to put out an executive order on drug pricing, and it looks as if the whole thing were basically written by big pharma.


We ALL know drug prices are INSANE already! What is this EO and WHAT is it for??


...a draft executive order includes nothing to curb prices. Instead, drug companies would be in line to get more power to charge monopoly prices overseas and be allowed to give even fewer discounts to hospitals with poor patients. And the administration is promising to roll back regulations that pharma has complained about.


Sounds like America is on the AUCTION block! On TOP of taking away 23 MILLION people's insurance, Trump is BOWING before BIG PHARMA!


Business Insider


Nice...an article full of conjecture and nothing of substance....typical lefty spew.

You were a homeless teen that what, got to where you are because of handouts or did you chose not to live like that and change it yourself?

Strange argument your making.

Hey I appreciate your passion on the subject. It sounds like you are a good person that cares about people, and that is more important than anything else.

Unfortunately, you are wrong. Socialism has been a failure evry single place it has been implemented.

You post a litany of problems, amny of them cause by governments. Then why would your solution be to give the government more power?

Every single time socialism has been implemented it was done so to help the less fortunate, and every single time it makes it far worse for those people.

10's of millions killed under Stalin, 10's of millions under Mao, firing squads under Castros impoverished regime, Venezuela, the paradise that hip people like Bernie sanders has praised, is falling apart at the seems.

Where has it worked even once?

In the early 20th century, under the workers paradise in the Soviet Union, they had to hand out fliers thaat basically said "No matter how hungry you are, its immoral to eat your children"

Thats an evil that we can't even comprehend.

Here is a video by the brilliant Jordan Peterson on the horrors of socialism.

Hand outs?
What the F*** is up with you lot?...Its small change to help people survive...of course I stood in benefit queues for hours hoping to get some help, have you no empathy? no compassion for the less fortunate? I suffered and was close to suicide because life was so difficult, my eldest is 29 and I have 4 grandchildren, I'm lucky I had the strength to cope and not top myself as that seemed a lot easier than living on benefits, my saving grace was that I had good survival instincts and I'm not stupid, the same cant be said for everyone and I'm willing to help those that cant help themselves!

Why are people so selfish today when the world is lush and full of food and water??
