This appears to be Henry Waxman's attempt to clarify his position on the CPSIA Amendment ahead of Thursday's mark-up.
Not surprisingly, there just isn't enough time to dig into every crevice of a document like this when you have a day job. . . . In any event, the document offers few surprises - this memorandum implies that only the Democrats care about safety and states pretty clearly that voting for the Amendment is a betrayal of American values. Whatever. After three years of this posturing, and the associated disaffection with the Democratic party, I am hardly surprised but still nauseated.
Get your barf bag ready.
