Good enough for government work

July 10, 2008

Congress is grilling members of Indiana’s RV-manufacturing community about all those toxic trailers:

A contractor hired by Forest River in 2006 told the company that formaldehyde levels in one trailer was so high that Forest River should post signs saying “hazardous – do not enter.”

What’s going on here?

A. The government didn’t exercise proper control, so it’s the fault of the feds.

B. The companies took advantage of government’s poor oversight, so it’s their fault.

You are correct if you chose:

C. Both of the above. This was $500 million in government contracts demanding a rush job on 50,000 trailers. What did people think would happen?
