You’re the one Trump is always right, right or wrong.
You’re the one so miserable you have to obsessively constantly worry about how people view Trump.
So who’s miserable?
I live by a code of morality. Not a code of idolatry for a political personality.
Koch brothers-backed groups are launching a campaign urging Congress to pass legislation allowing terminally ill patients to request access to experimental drugs the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved. Nearly 40 states have this law, known as “Right to Try,” already on their books. But Freedom Partners, in partnership with Americans for Prosperity — two groups funded in part by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch — say federal legislation is needed to assuage patient fears that the federal government will override state laws.

I was about to give Trump a thumbs up on this, then I thought about it.
Yeah, best to check your enthusiasm before you mess up and congratulate the wrong person for doing something good.
What does this mean? Is this to help sick people? Or is this just opening a door for big pharma to experiment on people without worrying about repercussions?
How about both? After all, if one dies of liver cancer in a week or of complications to an experimental drug in a week, are they not dead either way? Does it make them more dead if a pharmaceutical company gets something out of it?
Who knows what drugs they’ll try on people that are going to die anyway. Who knows if they’ll even have to tell you what the drugs are.
By law, the patients will know. You do realize everyone has the right to refuse any medication, right?
But I get it.... Trump = bad. Make it political.
