Yeah, it'd be horrible if we regulated them from enjoying the "freedom" to bankrupt the country out of $4.5 to $9 trillion (I haven't kept up) in bailout money, millions of jobs, environmental and food safety standards, effective health care... yadayaayada and then blame it on the poor.

more lovely...

No students attending LifeSkills were proficient in reading or math in 2012-'13, except for a single fourth-grade student, according to the most recent state achievement test score results.
