Donald Trump has selected his Secretary of Health and Human Services: Rep. Tom Price, a Republican from Georgia.
Price was an orthopedic surgeon before he started in congress and was a well known critic of Obamacare.
Trump said “He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American,”
Trump has also appointed a supporter of the DARK Act, Mike Pompeo, a Republican from Kansas, to head the CIA.
Voting in favour of the DARK Act put these firmly in the Monsanto camp, and tell us that these people care more about business, and making money for their allies than the health and well being of the American people.
The concerns regarding how much dangerously harmful GMO food we consume are already at a peak level, and with Trumps new administration making it clear what side they are on, things are surely only going to get worse.
We won’t know for sure the extent of corruption in Trumps administration until January 20th 2017, when he is officially sworn in, but we can made an educated guess. Monsanto have bought their way into government at the highest levels possible and the ability to sway any decision with financial influence is completely possible.
