    Paper towels are more sanitary. What is the point of washing your hands if you then turn off the faucets and open the door with your clean hands? (Unless you are a germ nut like me that uses my shirt to do that if there are no towels.) Half of the time the air blowers are broken, any way.
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    Yes, I do, if there ARE paper towels. Then I dispose of the towel and push the door open with my hip. I raised 5 kids, gotta know my germs.

    The Obama administration has identified dozens of unneeded regulations — from handling spilled milk to requiring warm-air hand dryers — that should be eliminated to save hundreds of millions of hours a year in filling out forms and, over time, billions of dollars in costs.

    The proposed changes, a few of which already have been enacted or are in their final stages, came in a report Thursday from a government-wide review ordered by President Obama in January to weed out overly burdensome rules and stimulate job growth.





    Obama has been under fire from Republicans and business groups for expanding government regulations, particularly after the enactment last year of the sweeping healthcare and financial reform laws.

    The proposed rule reductions were applauded by administration critics as a good first step to easing burdens on businesses and local governments. But an environmental group warned that the White House needed to be careful not to eliminate rules that protect the public.

    White House officials said they were committed to getting rid of regulations "that are out-of-date, unnecessary, excessively burdensome or in conflict with other rules."

    While that's a good start, much more needs to be done, to really be effective.

    So let me see if I understand. When a Republican proposes to cut wasteful spending, conservatives are overjoyed.

    But when a Democrat actually DOES it, he's anti-business and it's secretly a conspiracy where he's just going to instate other wasteful regulations so he can waste even MORE spending. Because there's totally a reason he'd want to do that.

    Ok.

    Progressive is progressive. The denotation of party affiliation after the name only serves to project the speed at which the destruction takes place.
