The politics of responsibility

Posted in Policy, Politics by MB

Republicans are forever praising the concept of taking responsibility. You’re poor? Sick? Unlucky? That’s all your responsibility. Get hurt and are suddenly faced with $100k in medical bills you never asked for? Your responsibility.

Funny how that tune changes when it comes to corporate responsibility. Then it’s all over-regulation! Trial lawyers! Stymied innovation! Utter bullshit. If Republicans held corporations to the same standard of responsibility they do an unwed mother of two, I just might vote Republican.

As Ezra points out, it’s all about power, not principle.
