With capitalism soon installed in the Whitehouse...

...job one will be removing regulations. Especially those that protect consumers and the public at large.

Job two will be to raid the public safety nets of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the ACA and turn them over for Wall St management to the banksters.

Donald doesn't think in terms of public service and neither do his cabinet appointees.
Private sector capital enrichment is the goal of these Oligarchs and people like the Koch Brothers are sharpening their knives and licking their chops.

1. While you are correct that Trump will enrich them and himself

Capitalism is not new to the White House or America. Fascism and this degree of cleptocracy, however, is new.

4. I'm not saying it's new

 

I'm saying they won't even pretend social concern anymore.
Unfettered on steroids.

3. Capitalism has always ruled the WH.

Our founders were capitalists.

The last two, at least, Democratic presidents were neo-liberals, which is about unregulated, or less regulated, commerce. Reagan would have been proud of them.

What's coming in, as far as capitalism/free trade/economic darwinism goes, is the same goal: de-regulate and feed the rich, without the need to pretend or make faux concessions.

6. It's going to be a tough four years,

to be sure, and many changes may extend further into the century even if he is removed in 2020.

7. They probably already got their playbook scripts ready for the upcoming year

I hope somebody gets a hold of the playbook scripts and publishes them.

Just like the kochs recruited and trained their "owned" legislators you know they got their roadmap prepared for a month by month assault on breaking up the US safety nets, institutions and lands they want to sell off.

8. It'll be a year round Christmas for the Kochs

 

Unless they are stopped.
Unfortunately they've been laying the foundation for this for decades.

10. Whats coming in

Are the purveyors of failed, reckless, and irresponsible conservative economic dogma, seeking to end necessary, proper, and Constitutional regulatory case law, and return the country to a pre-Lochner economic paradigm that will endanger the health and well-being of workers and consumers, and foment environmental degradation.

Itís important to note that this has little to do with Trump, as any Republican president with a Republican Congressional majority would result in the same likely economic disaster.
