When a conservative says they’re against government regulations, what they really mean is they’re against government regulations that protect consumers. Regulations hurting the regular guy are just fine with them. Case in point, this clown:
Atlanta-Journal Constitution — “Let me tell you what we’re doing (about ObamaCare),” Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens bragged to a crowd of fellow Republicans in Floyd County earlier this month: “Everything in our power to be an obstructionist.”
After pausing to let applause roll over him, a grinning Hudgens went on to give an example of that obstructionist behavior, this one involving so-called “navigators” who are being hired to guide customers through the process of buying health insurance on marketplaces, or exchanges, set up under the federal program.
“We have passed a law that says that a navigator, which is a position in that exchange, has to be licensed by our Department of Insurance,” Hudgens said. “The ObamaCare law says that we cannot require them to be an insurance agent, so we said fine, we’ll just require them to be a licensed navigator. So we’re going to make up the test, and basically you take the insurance agent test, you erase the name, you write ‘navigator test’ on it.”
Stuff like this will become more and more widespread and shows the lengths conservatives will go to, i.e., violating sacred principles of free market libertarianism is not an issue, if they can stop one hard working person from getting life saving medical treatment.
