Raise Taxes on that Guy? Sounds Fair to Liberals

They don't want workers' comp claims coming in like a flood; they'll keep the workplace safe for that reason. It's also true that they'd rather not have to hire another worker to replace someone they'd already figured was satisfactory. On the other hand, employers are constantly speeding up production lines, often to the point that it is no longer safe. Let there be a rise in comp claims, sometimes they'll recognize they've done something unsafe, but the bean counters are always telling companies, "Make them work faster! Make them work faster! Then you can lay a few off and still have as much production as now, and you'll have a better bottom line!"

Back when Bush, Jr. appointed Eugene Scalia as the head of the Department of Labor one of the first things he did was testify to Congress that ergonomics was junk science and that repetitive motion injuries did not exist. Even though he wasn't a physician and had never held a job requiring manual labor. This is analogous to someone who has never played tennis saying there is no such thing as tennis elbow. I mean it wasn't hard to figure out where this guy's sympathies lied. Never mind the fact that he was leading an agency that he didn't think should exist in the first place.

Dear Comrade Mr. Toad,

Did I ever tell you how much I loved your Wild Ride at Disney when I was a kid?

I really did.

You are on to something here. Of course, you’re liberal and the fact that you have a point is accidental and unintentional.

But you have made an effective case why tax...
