Trump, GOP pick status quo over ‘draining of the swamp’


To the Editor,

I thought that Donald Trump and conservative Republicans were going to bring change, overthrow the status quo, and ”drain the swamp.” That is what Trump campaigned on.

President-elect Donald Trump said he was going to take on the lobbyists, but his transition team is loaded with lobbyists, and insiders. Conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives have re-elected Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, and conservative Republicans in the Senate have re-elected Mitch McConnell as majority leader.

Congress voted for the status quo. I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same.
