scheherazade says... Bob said that her line of argument (selling regulation policy changes for self enrichment), is less of an obvious motivation for someone who enters politics already wealthy. That's a perfectly fine statement to make, as there is less to gain. Net effect wise, nothing has changed for the average person. So I would argue that POTUS is more ineffectual than able to make things exponentially anything. -scheherazade newtboy said: No sir. He is saying Trump is cleaning up Washington, removing corruption. I'm saying he's more corrupt than any other politician ever and has made things exponentially worse. All I see we agree on is that there is corruption in congress, but even then we don't agree on what level of corruption or by who. We absolutely don't agree on Trump's corruption (or lack thereof).
