Republican administrations simply cannot be trusted to do anything to protect the common good and safety of America. I've said it over and over but nothing puts it in the headlights any better than this:
A small beef supplier wants to test every single head of beef for mad cow disease and provide only guaranteed safe beef. The Bush Administration is going to stop him.
So what's wrong with a supplier offering 100% testing on his product? Isn't that a "free market" concept?
"No freekin way!" says the Bush administration. That would mean that all beef suppliers would have to test their beef because consumers would prefer to buy the "safe" stuff. It would cost corporations money.
"WASHINGTON: The Bush administration said Tuesday it will fight to keep meatpackers from testing all their animals for mad cow disease."
Republicans...Keeping America Safe for Corporate Profits!
