    Bush Aides Rush to Enact a Rule Obama Opposes

    WASHINGTON — The Labor Department is racing to complete a new rule, strenuously opposed by President-elect Barack Obama, that would make it much harder for the government to regulate toxic substances and hazardous chemicals to which workers are exposed on the job.

    The rule, which has strong support from business groups, says that in assessing the risk from a particular substance, federal agencies should gather and analyze “industry-by-industry evidence” of employees’ exposure to it during their working lives. The proposal would, in many cases, add a step to the lengthy process of developing standards to protect workers’ health.

    Public health officials and labor unions said the rule would delay needed protections for workers, resulting in additional deaths and illnesses.

    With the economy tumbling and American troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, President Bush has promised to cooperate with Mr. Obama to make the transition “as smooth as possible.” But that has not stopped his administration from trying, in its final days, to cement in place a diverse array of new regulations.

    The Labor Department proposal is one of about 20 highly contentious rules the Bush administration is planning to issue in its final weeks. The rules deal with issues as diverse as abortion, auto safety and the environment.

    You can't expect GW Bush to kiss the Great Messiah's a$s the way Mush Mouth Chris Matthews, The Kennedy's and the Hollywood Racist's do, can you.

    Press Cover won't answer me and call me a moron because he has me blocked again.

    Press Cover, go look out your window, do you see anything strange out there...........:singing::singing:

    The country would have been better off had the shoes that were thrown at him been on target and filled with deadly explosives.

    Wouldn't you agree Harry?

    Once again, Harry, in his anti-minority haze, misses the point.

    This is about labor protections, and your hero's disdain for them. Not about Obama. At what point, in your 80-plus years, do you ever get it?

    Yup I read that almost all his last-minute bills have to do with easing up on environmental laws, but I guess thanks to this we not only create more sick people but now we can also deny their claims to the very people that made them sick in the first place.

    Not to mention the secondary damage to the environment, something which if preserved, would sustain us for a long,long time to come. He should be impeached before he does any furthur damage :mad:

    This is more of a political thing than a permanent law thing. Obama will undo what he sees fit to undo and then the Republicans will try to use that undoing to hurt him and the Democrats politically in 2010.
