Sen. Barbara Boxer files a bill that would require car rental companies such as Hertz Global (HTZ -1.8%), Dollar Thrifty (DTG -1.3%), and Avis Budget (CAR -0.8%) to pull recalled cars from their fleets. A group representing the industry opposes the proposed legislation, saying companies already adopt conservative standards and don't need to be more highly regulated.

    Yes, this is one of the more pressing concerns facing America.

     

    Lets see..... I could introduce a balanced budget? Nope. I could introduce a bill to consolidate cabinent agencies to save money? Nope. I could introduce a bill that reforms the tax code and lessens the presence of the IRS in my constituancies lives? Nope.

     

    Or I could introduce some garbage that will require we hire more useless bureaucrats..... who will then vote for me!!!

     

    Bingo!!!

    Virtually the sole function of modern government, especially at the federal level.

    Cars are recalled for serious safety reasons. No wonder GOP types are high school dropouts.
