It is a star chamber.

"W" and Donald Rumsfeld had a cabal. It appears as though Republicans cannot separate themselves from cronies even at the highest level. That is what Donald Trump's casinos and hotels are; they are cronies.

There is a profound difference in the administrations of Democrats and Republicans. Republicans are power players, while Democrats are legislators. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had the most prolific US House in history. The US House passed so much legislation the US Senate could not get to all of it. It was that reason The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was passed in the first year. It could have been buried under enormous numbers of bills and would never have a chance at passage.

This Trump administration harken back to when the wealthy landowners exclusively controlled the election system. I think it is shameful the Trump cabinet is filled with billionaires. Maybe that is the only way he is assured his wealth doesn't over shadow his cabinet officers, but, it is completely shameful.

I am certain the world was unaware there were so many billionaires in the USA. The global community knew the country was wealthy, but, in sincere debt. This administration's cabinet goes to prove where the money goes in the USA. The wealth accumulates at the top and robs the middle class forcing a much larger numbers of poor. This is the USA. It is completely out of balance in it's wealth. The wealthy exist in the face of a larger and growing national debt. I am certain the national deficit will increase under Trump.
