Wow. Sen. Thom Tillis (R-E. Coli) really stepped in it this time, didn’t he? In case you’ve been off-planet, The formerly pro-business GOPper opined the other day that restaurants shouldn’t have to force employees to wash their hands after visiting the rest room. Just have them put a sign saying that they don’t require it and let the market decide.
Tillis’ remarks have been widely misinterpreted as being anti-regulation. Hogwash.
- Who’s going to make that restaurant post a sign?
- Who’s going to enforce the requirement that they post a sign?
- What if the restaurant doesn’t want to post a sign?
And how about this:
- Who’s going to pay for the sign?
