Break the law? Just wait a while...

…and if you give enough money to the right people, and those people get elected to the right places you’ll get off scot free from your past transgressions. Unbelievable. This is akin to raising the speed limit to 65 from 55 and declaring that everyone given a speeding ticket (going between 55 and 65) is owed a refund. (Regardless of what you think of traffic laws…)

And even worse is the message this is sending to the companies the government is supposedly regulating: "Just keep stalling and eventually we'll let you do what you want." Rips the teeth out of any regulations even this administration might want to enforce.
