    Both sides whine:
    Save us from ourselves.

    That is really what they mean.

    The Right always assumes that government oversight and regulations are costing us jobs which is nonsense. Inadequate oversight in the banking and mortgage industry was a major cause of the recession which cost us a million jobs.

    The biggest problem with government regulations is they are not enforced. Each new administration decides what they are going to target.

    We inspect less than 1% of medical ingredients imported into the USA. And we import something like 80% of the ingredients. China being the biggest supplier.

    Big government were the ones that were suppose to be enforcing the regulations. The problem was not lack of Regulations it was lack of proper enforcement.

    The people overseeing the Banking industry and Loan industry, Were the ones telling us everything was ok with F and F. They were not doing their Jobs.

    Same with BP. There were plenty of Regulations, the people who were suppose to enforce them, simply didn't

    Because Big Government SUCKS HOLY ass at its job.

    DUH!

    The 'oversight' that was in place was a big part of the problem, actually.
