It’s policy-making by myth, so who needs reality? According to guest Scott Slesinger, legislative director of the Natural Resources Defense Council, congressional Republicans seriously intend to turn back government to before Upton Sinclair’s “The Jungle,” when there were no rules or regulations whatsoever. And they have linked together seven bills to allow no regulatuons at all until there’s less than 6% unemployment. Of course the result of these efforts will mean fewer jobs, as innovation for efficiency will no longer be needed. Again, myth trumps science and facts.
