News Flash: Business Doesn’t Like Public Health Regulation

Last week I posted about Rep. Darrell Issa’s asking business which rules they would rather not operate under.  We now know the response bfrom the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

In response, the GOP-friendly National Association of Manufacturers has asked him to probe forthcoming regulations aimed at enhancing worker health, improving toxin standards, mitigating climate pollution and preventing another crisis on Wall Street.

Wow, they really didn’t leave much out did they?  Well, they didn’t complain about regulations designed to prevent oil spills.  That’s probably because, as a panel pointed out earlier this week, there really aren’t any.  Although, I’m sure if the Administration or Congress comes up with some, NAM will be right there leading the fight against them.
