I’m probably walking right off the cliff into some unexpected public policy bog of which I’m unaware, but...
At this moment his aides should have run on stage and clubbed him with a stick. In fact, one of my "Lib insider" friends told me they were going to plant an electric buzzer under Iggy's jacket that would shock him any time he started improvising like this. Why has that device not been installed yet? Heads should roll.
FWIW, Iggy was right the 1st time; asbestos is terrible stuff and as a nation we should get out of the business of exporting it to 3rd world countries, not merely "warning them" of dangers they surely know all about.
As a baby step in that direction, however, why not end funding to the Chrysotile Institute (formerly known as the Asbestos institute before than name got too hot to handle)?
Why not at least make the industry pay for its own propaganda?
