The GOP Congress does not like to acknowledge that they are simply bowing to their corporate donors when they blanket approve the deregulation process. They seem to be following the prescription that if the regulation was developed under a Democratic administration, it must be a bad thing. I don't think anybody would deny that there are probably regulations that are overbroad and that inhibit business practices. That being said, most of these regulations were put in place specifically because those being regulated had abused and disregarded Public Safety. It is especially galling to note that most of this deregulation frenzy seems to be centered on specific regulations regarding consumer protections and the environment. Not to mention, job discrimination, sex discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and racial injustice. The GOP has consistently shown us their true colors. 2018 midterm elections cannot come soon enough.
