The gift that keeps on giving

It seems that on his way out the door Captain Codpiece intends to make things just that much nicer for a wide array of business interests and that much worse for Americans, human beings and the planet. The list of proposed new regulations would:
  • Allow federally funded health care workers to refuse to perform abortions
  • Impose mandatory drug testing on miners (whilst doing nothing to improve their abysmal and dangerous working conditions)
  • All the Interior Department to approve development projects without scientific input (they'd just ignore it anyway)
It's always Xmas for business interests in the Bush White House innit?
