Listen, I don't really care WHY this proposed regulation was stopped, or WHO stopped it. I'm just glad that it's fini for now. I can't stand Obama and don't much care for his twin Mitt. I think we need to put a hard rein on ALL of these a-holes. As it is now, there are entirely too many people, spending WAY too much time and collecting WAY too much money, to dream up "stuff" (which is the polite word for CRAP). Probably the most effective way to get government out of the minutiae of our lives would be to first do away with 95% of the various "Departments" and "Bureaus" and "Czars", and then severely restrict the amount of time that Congress is allowed to meet... I think two months out of each year is PLENTY (and their pay gets docked for whatever time Congress is in session and they're not there). And how about restrictions on bills coming out of Congress... there needs to be a REASONABLE limit on how many pages, in 12 point type and double-spaced, a single bill can be (I like 100 pages myself, I think that's PLENTY long enough to cover any subject and would actually be readable. Bills that are mutiple thousands of pages long are BS). Oh yeah, we need to STOP giving these people life-long pensions and benefits.... MOST of us commoners aren't going to get a pension, instead we'll have to rely on 401k's or other savings. Does anyone stop to wonder just WHY somebody would spend thousands and millions of dollars trying to get elected to public office??????????
