    Although you could consider the political climate and theorize that a political body who wants less regulations would also be less willing to enforce regulations that exist.  It is a much broader argument about attitude of political parties.  

    That said, the regulations were there, they were ignored by the hotel and that makes the hotel management and ownership 100% criminally liable in my view.  

    The political argument is more of a philosophical larger picture.  I am not for or against more regulations.  That isn't even an argument that makes sense to me.  I am for appropriate regulations and enforcement of such (as I would say we all here are).  I also believe that this series of events are indicative of corporations and their willingness to skirt regulations to make a buck.  Why would anyone want to give more power over to such entities that continually prove they are not ethical enough to be worthy of such.
