Regulations So Helpful - NOT!


Regulations meant to help us are actually just burdensome restrictions on us that we have to work around.

Imagine if all of those heavy shipping trucks carrying goods on our freeways along the coast could be replaced by boats...

"The Jones Act has made shipping between US ports extremely expensive. So expensive, in fact, that some Hawaiian ranchers still fly cows to the mainland rather than having them loaded and shipped on boats. Those high costs not only make the goods Americans buy more expensive, they’ve pushed ever more freight on to trucks, significantly increasing highways congestion, intensifying air pollution and further degrading the country’s infrastructure."
