The excuses for opposing these requirements are laughable.
The are GREAT at telling people what they're against, but they neglect to ever get around to what they're for.
"Republican culture of corruption:", "Bush lied-- people died", "tax cuts for the rich.", "no war for oil!" (we still hear THAT loony from time to time), and other mindless sound bites are NOT policy positions.
The voting public is not as stupid as the Democrats expect them to be.
The Law of Unintended Consequences continues to work silently.......
