  •  I work construction in California (4+ / 0-)

    We have regular inspections on each project and have to comply with: the California Building Code, California Electric Code, California Plumbing Code, California Mechanical Code, the National Fire Protection Code, our own law section, Cal Osha, Local Municipal Codes, local amendments to the above codes, Health Codes, Zoning, ADA provisions, Title 24 energy conservation, the California Bureau of Industrial Safety,......... and yet all of this just sets the legal floor for my competitors.  Without these regulations we would not be able to compete with those that would build shoddy and unsafe buildings, cut corners and risk life and limb.

    These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel. Abraham Lincoln
