Deregulation’s Deeds

”In a letter sent last year to the Department of the Interior, BP objected to what it called "extensive, prescriptive regulations" proposed in new rules to toughen safety standards. "We believe industry's current safety and environmental statistics demonstrate that the voluntary programs…continue to be very successful."“

If you don’t see the connection between the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Upper Branch Mine explosion and the regulatory failures at the FAA -- then I have failed as a blogger.

People are dead. You can’t fix that. As horrific as the environmental damage is and the cost to the economy will be...people are dead. You can’t fix that. You can’t make that right.
