It’s too bad you couldn’t author a more substantive reply, though. It’s a pity because simplistic cant and regurgitated talking points simply won’t help us move forward.
Repealing Dodd/Frank won’t magically create a “business-friendly climate”, and creating a “business-friendly climate” won’t magically bring back high-paying, low-skill jobs or otherwise address the ongoing challenges of globalization and automation.
Repealing the Affordable Care Act (and insurance company deregulation and tort reform – allow me to insert those standard talking points for you) won’t magically address the rapid increases in health care costs occasioned by: the explosion in new, expensive diagnostic procedures, drugs, and other medical treatments; the ballooning cost of end-of-life care; and an aging population.
Fact is, we’ve been hearing for nearly 40 years now that the answer to all of our problems is to empower people – and by “people” we particularly mean the 1% and businesses large and small, but mostly large – by “getting government off our backs.” And the way to do that, apparently, is by ever more federal deregulation and tax cuts. It hasn’t worked. Let me repeat that: It hasn’t worked. And yet, to hear the Republicans tell it, the only reason it hasn’t worked is because we just haven’t done enough of it.
‘course, that’s what ideologues of all stripes always say.
