    I usually don't watch these, but I'm tuning in this week.

    Washington (CNN)Rep. Tom Price last year purchased shares in a medical device manufacturer days before introducing legislation that would have directly benefited the company, raising new ethics concerns for President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for Health and Human Services secretary.

    Price bought between $1,001 to $15,000 worth of shares last March in Zimmer Biomet, according to House records reviewed by CNN.

    Less than a week after the transaction, the Georgia Republican congressman introduced the HIP Act, legislation that would have delayed until 2018 a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services regulation that industry analysts warned would significantly hurt Zimmer Biomet financially once fully implemented.

    Zimmer Biomet, one of the world's leading manufacturers of knee and hip implants, was one of two companies that would been hit the hardest by the new CMS regulation that directly impacts the payments for such procedures, according to press reports and congressional sources.

    Of course the bar's set low. It's still Utah.

    I actually tweeted to the Hatch Office acct in regards to his PAC taking contributions from DeVos. I don't even know if that actually matters on any level, but I figured I'd be a mosquito.

    As you know, I couldn't be more opposed to the Trump presidency, but I will definitely tune in. The peaceful transfer of power of an inauguration is breathtaking, and I think it's an incredible thing to witness.

    Who is your favorite congressman?

    Keep in mind that I'll be very upset if you don't give the correct answer.
    Trade Ellsbury. Keep Gardner.

    Congressperson.

    John Lewis is the only correct answer. Also, I'm sure Congressman Lewis is grateful to Rob Schneider for whitesplaining the civil rights movement to him.

    Re: Election 2016

    Interesting point someone brought up regarding the problem with Trump not divesting himself from his businesses.

    ******************************************

    A terrorist bombs a Hilton Hotel in Panama*. Nobody is killed. Hilton is an American company. Would there be a response from us? Would we send in troops to Panama?

    or

    A terrorist bombs the Trump Hotel in Panama*. Again, nobody is killed. Is this an attack on America? An attack on the President of the United States? Would we commit troops to fight this?


    (*Panama was chosen because in real life, both Hilton and Trump have properties there.)

    I'm not sure, but I think melon was hoping for Jason Chaffetz.
