More Responsibility from the "Party of Responsibility"

Read here, here, here, and here for further evidence that the Bush administration has zero interest in the safety and welfare of the American people. Christy over at Fire Dog Lake also has something to say about this.


That response reflects OSHA’s practices under the Bush administration, which vowed to limit new rules and roll back what it considered cumbersome regulations that imposed unnecessary costs on businesses and consumers. Across Washington, political appointees — often former officials of the industries they now oversee — have eased regulations or weakened enforcement of rules on issues like driving hours for truckers, logging in forests and corporate mergers.
The Food and Drug Administration has known for years about contamination problems at a Georgia peanut butter plant and on California spinach farms that led to disease outbreaks that killed three people, sickened hundreds, and forced one of the biggest product recalls in U.S. history, documents and interviews show.
Profits for corporate shareholders and CEOs rules supreme. Using Bushian logic, the U.S. economy is driven by giving rich people all the money because they then turn around and throw the working class an occasional bone. If a few of us must die so the Ken Lays of the world can buy another Lear jet, then so be it. We all have to die some day anyway.
