False? Wooden?If there were as many inspectors, efficiency experts, and regulators as there are IRS agents we’d have a real good start. Targeting your personnel is also very important. Some contractors are ‘protected’ by elected officials who resist targeted inspections, especially if they or a family member has interests in that company. Random searches are less effective.NPR had a great report this morning on the Mass. company responsible for the meningitis cases killing some people and making others ill. The EPA used to regulate them, but a SCOTUS ruling and a lack of congressional action to close the gap SCOTUS exposed caused the EPA to walk away from companies like the one in Mass. The state of Mass is responsible for that company and one or two of the company’s executives are actually ON the board that regulates them.(Councilman Fox would like to complain about the cost of security measures around the chicken coop.)And people are dying, people are sick. Medical costs for families and hospitals treating uninsured patients are being added onto the rest of us. The company will just go bankrupt and walk away from the sick and the dead. But it wasn’t personal, it was just business.Sadly,C.
