Why I Hate ReThuglicans, Part 4,999,654

Drowning in a sea of hate & indifference.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, declined to explain why it didn't act sooner on warnings about any of these unsafe children's products. In refusing to answer questions about Magnetix, the agency cited a provision of federal law that protects manufacturers' reputations.

That law gives manufacturers great sway in how government officials regulate children's products. Combined with skimpy budgets and reduced staffing, the provision undermines the agency's power.
