Not sure what kind of play the Republicans are making here – this “let them decide” now seems to be the party line. If it means more braindead sheep removed from the voting pool, I’m all for it. Meanwhile, I’m going to keep washing my hands and avoid shaking hands with this Senatorial idiot.
A US senator has suggested that restaurants should not have to make their employees wash their hands after toilet visits.
Senator Thom Tillis, a North Carolina Republican, made the comments on Monday during a speech criticising business regulations.
"Let them decide" such issues, the newly elected lawmaker said.
His argument was that restaurants which did not require workers to wash their hands would quickly go out of business.
"But I think it’s good to illustrate the point, that that’s the sort of mentality we need to have to reduce the regulatory burden on this country," Mr Tillis said.
He suggested that restaurants that did not require hand washing would have to alert customers with prominently displayed signs – itself a regulation.
