If Republicans win back the House

The GOPers are feeling so cocksure they're going to win their majority back they're not even pretending to care about anything except their Big Business base. The vote on the Financial Reg bill was barely over before they were calling for a repeal. Today, they took it to the next level with Boehner calling for a moratorium on all new Federal regulations for a year.

This brilliant plan came out of the GOP-Big Business confab they had this morning where complaints like this were aired by their cronies.
"Whether it's OSHA, EPA, Wage and Hour," Danner said, "they see all those as new costs and new hindrances to them as a business owner."

Marlene Colucci of the American Hotel and Lodging Association complained that "auditors can come in, look at your workplace, and if they find, let's say, an OSHA violation, then they can go and find what other violations might exist."
Yes, that's right. They want all worker protections and environmental safeguards to be abolished. In other words, it would be just like resurrecting the Bush regime all over again. Only worse.

Funny stuff, now Steve King is claiming that the wingnuts don't have to give away their plans in advance of elections, for the media to critique. Pig in a poke comes to mind.

Of course, they don't actually have any plans to divulge outside of more tax cuts anyway.
