Voting to make things worse

Thomas Frank, author of What’s the Matter With Kansas on point on Grit TV

transcript:

If you look at what’s brought on the disaster we’re in, the economic disaster, we know what happened.  It was deregulation [on] Wall Street.  I mean, basically the unleashing of entrepreneurship on Wall Street.  We all know that that’s what did all this to us, and yet these people who are now in charge of the House of Representatives have basically run on deregulate more.  You know, they’re calling Washington DC a “red tape factory,” [that] we gotta do away with all this regulation…  they think the economy is overregulated, they think that’s the problem and by God “freedom!”   *laughs*

They’re going to do away with this stuff.  If there was ever  a case of voting for something that is going to make the problem worse, wow, this is it.
