31. those damn regulations that prevent polution, slave labor, unsafe product & working conditions, etc.
they also hate all employment law because any hire (for companies with more than 50 employees, i think) exposes them to a risk of discrimination lawsuit.

regulations that prevent fraud, that require nutritional and allergen risk information, all that stuff.

just think how much more profit could be made if they didn't have to worry about how expensive the government makes dead workers and customers and neighbors!
