If he replaces these panel members with nonpartizan professionals or experts then bravo..................but.....................we've seen who he puts in the very visible and high profile tzar positions.
I'd be scared to see who replaces the ultra right wing capitalists with in these out of the public eye positions.
"Under the policy, which is being phased in over the coming months, none of the more than 13,000 lobbyists in Washington would be able to hold seats on the committees, which advise agencies on trade rules, troop levels, environmental regulations, consumer protections and thousands of other government policies."
How many thousand ultra left wing socialists are going to be doing the exact same type of crooked deals? Now, instead of profiting by getting government contracts, they will be creating even bigger government based on tax and spend with no profts at all. Just deeper debt and more control of the citizens.
Ultra left wing replaces ultra right wing. The difference?
A much more hampered economy and much higher taxes to pay for an even bigger government.
