    You believe there are 30 million people enrolled in the afforadable health care program? Last I heard there are less than 12 million enrolled.

    I get that all politicians lie, but most don't do it with such vigor.

    They make promises, but Trump built his entire platform on simple constructs that enflamed people and now he's backing completely away from it.

    Obama ran saying he was going to do the healthcare thing and he followed through at least, no matter if you like Obamacare or not.

    Trump was supposed to be anti-establishment and for Joe Six Pack and he's doing nothing of the kind thus far.

    There are 30 million on subsidized insurance and expanded Medicaid.

    But hey, fuck them.

    You mean the ones you and I are paying for? About the same amount as on food stamps and other subsidized programs. No wonder it's called "affordable" care. But affordable for who.? What about the poor schleeps who bust their ass to earn say $40.k a year that aren't eligible for assistance and are asked to pay over $9.k in premiums with a $10. K deductible? Who is really getting screwed the most?

    His cabinet choices are the direct opposite of what he sold.

    That could be the case but to a large degree they are not entrenched politicians or have spent their careers in politics. Some have but all the slots haven't been identified yet. It may end up being the same old boys club but all isn't known yet.

    ExxonMobil Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson is the leading candidate for Secretary of State in a Donald Trump administration, multiple sources familiar with the transition process tell CNN on Saturday.
