GOP Values Getting Convoluted

Check this article out - the GOP is calling for more government interference in business now! I thought this was a taboo topic for the GOP? What gives?

GOP: Don't blame manufacturers for toxic trailers
'Republicans are blaming the federal government for not having standards for safe levels of formaldehyde in trailers used by Hurricane Katrina victims."

GOP: Don't blame manufacturers for toxic trailers - Yahoo! News

Could it be the values they espouse are really based on the unbridled worship of the dollar, and anyone can be fingered if profits are at stake? Calls for bigger government and more regulation to protect their investments trumps the original party values noted as "conservative" back in the day, where individual responsibility, not bigger government, was the ticket?

You are really reaching here, but then you usually do.

This is a perfect example of the "drive-by media" using carelessly flung together phrases that obfuscate instead on clarifying. Note: "GOP staff analysis" would have been much more useful if written "Rep Senator/Representative's staff analyzed...." Instead the author leaves the impression, which you happily hopped on, that a political party took a position. The GOP is not a member of Congress.

Charter member of the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy and proud of it.

God Bless the America we're trying to create.
