Politics Over Finger Painting

According to numerous sources like this Washington Post article George W. Bush opposes congress’ decision to ban toxic toys. The “family values” guy who duped the masses with easily digestible sound bites is making a typical type II error (of sorts) by supporting big business like Exxon Mobil, who manufactures the plastics found in many children's toys, at the expense of children. I hope these companies will contribute to the $490 billion dollar projected deficit that our children will be paying off in between treatment for phthalate induced kidney, liver, and reproductive problems. Wait, we know they can…record profits! Remember when Clinton’s $128 billion surplus seemed like a lot of money?
