    Sobel suggested that, in hard-hit areas, Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) should create "free-trade zones – in which all normal regulations, licensing and taxes [are] suspended". This corporate free-for-all would, apparently, "better provide the goods and services victims need".
    Right after the storm, there were people with out of state plates selling no name brand generators for 2x the price of a good one. (the stores were sold out of generators). That kind of stuff would be a lot more commonplace without regulations, IMHO.

    Where are all the jobs, Boehner?
