    That is totally false. A big corporation that isn't responsive to the consumer goes out of business. No one voted for this new regulation, no one debated it. Our elected officials didn't vote on it. This is being IMPOSED by the state by unelected bureaucrats.

    Yes. You remember how Obama promised that he wouldn't let lobbyists impact any decisions, right? Yes, I do too.

    That is of course except that the lobbyists he appointed to make decisions he likes. Then lobbyists=good people.

    Companies will literally make decisions knowing that more people will die as a result, because that decision improves the bottom line. They will let you die for profit.

    Don't act like business is sufficiently overseen by "the invisible hand." It's horse****.

    Somebody will sue and somebody will introduce legislation to stop it. It is how the regulatory process works.

    Do purposely miss the point of everything I say? Or are you just not understanding what I say?

    Can you remember the last time a politician said that lobbyists WOULD impact their decisions?

    I understand what you are saying. You are wrong. The idea that a business is more accountable to the population than the government, and therefore is somehow more trustworthy, is wrong.
