Democrats Want Federal Bailout for Fishermen Hurt By Federal Regulations

This is one of those stories that makes you want to bang your head against the wall. Federal regulations are decimating the fishing industry. Rather than pass some legislation easing up on the regulations and making it easier for fishermen to make a living, Democrats just want to bail out the industry with federal tax dollars.

Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee is applauding the U.S. Commerce Department’s decision to declare a national fishery disaster in New England. The move opens the door for tens of millions of dollars in relief funds for fishermen.

U.S. Sen. John Kerry said he’s secured a commitment from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to include $100 million for fishermen and fishing communities in emergency assistance legislation. He said the job after Thursday’s declaration is to fight for the money in a potentially reluctant Congress.

    I’m a professional charter boat operator and I can tell you that insane federal regulation and bogus enforcement is causing me serious damage to my ability to make a living. Having said that, a bailout is totally insane. Just stop creating and enforcing ridiculous laws.
    This is simply another angle for the liberals and this illicit, America hating, mis-administration to move “Forward” in the scheme of bankrupting this nation.

  • fishiemike

    not no but hell no.all this is is shoveling monies for the demoncrats.

    Any reasonable person would conclude we need to get rid of the stupid regulations that are causing the problem in the first place. I guess that makes too much sense…

  • ATLDave

    This makes perfect sense. Obama said he was going to do this when he said that he wanted to treat ALL businesses like he did GM. Afterall look at what a great success that was! Democrats will do anything to get more people off the “make your own way” bandwagon and back to the “Democrat plantation”. If the government got out of the way these fishermen just might be successful – God (if only they believed in one) forbid that they do it without the Democrats’s help – or try anyway.
