The "special interests" you have identified have immasculated all federal regulations. The last administration clearly changed the "rules". Business was not to be stymied. After all, the Republican Party believed Ronald Reagan when he claimed that profits would result in more jobs. The recent past has proven that profits became bonus checks and jobs went overseas. Big companies bought out small ones and fired all the workers and cashed in on the sale. Economic theories like trickle down economics sound good, but human greed makes it unworkable. The government put enviornment on the back burner. It was not going to be a hinderence to making money. Regulations that inhibited business and enforcement was to stop. Agencies were populated with Republicans that believed what was good for business was good for the country. When GW left, he made them all career employees that could not be fired. It was as if the zoo Chairman had made a decision to allow the lions to go free within the confines of the zoo. Now all the other animals are dead and gone. That is what has happened to jobs, competition and now to our gulf. I do not blame the corporations for doing what they do when not contained anymore than I blame the lions. The policy is wrong headed, it was bought and paid for by the corporations and the country has been led by the business community to believe they are responsible and care about the nation and other things more then they care about profit. That's like telling the lion he cares more about making friends with a deer then he does eating it. You may believe it but I know when the king is naked and GW was clearly riding around town with no clothes. The same goes for the SEC and EPA. They are bought and paid for and as worthless as all the politicians that are funded by these special interests. The country must and I predict will rewrite those enforcement regulations and business will be caged again as it was prior to RR, BC and GW. Free speech must not translate into dollars. That was not the intent of the founding fathers. No one anticipated that corporations and the rich would evolve into super citizens with extraordinary access to our leaders. It is wrong on every level and anyone that thinks otherwise believes selling out the country and it's institutions is a moral act. As for the queen idiot, representitive of all that is silly and short sighted; I really won't waste anytime on her. Ask the people of Alaska what they think of her. They are tired of being laughed at.
