What is occuring in the USA House, in their own orbit, is nothing more than hubris on an expensive salary. This 'ACT' is why the right wing media is focusing on regulation.
This is a no brainer. The USA needs protections to their environment through regulation. They need protections in their food supply and their medical supply and they are not getting it while their Senators are grappling with huge global systems to stem dangers to the domestic demands inside the country.
It is getting hideous and stupid. With all this infrastructure spending there should be plenty of monies to subsidize small companies to faciliate compliance. If they are helped to meet regulations they will have a secure market share and safe clientele. What could be better.
Interesting. The House GOP is willing to spend millions upon millions to defeat regulations without a single thought about spending millions upon millions to facilitate and enforce them. In a society concerned about the cost of health care, regulations are the first measure that should be taken to reduce the need and reduce the cost. I mean really, do I have to say all this? And the media worries about 'spiritual nutcases' in need of exorcists.
