Doing Business Under Senator Blumenthal

Dan Haar, a business reporter for the Harford Courant, thinks that Attorney General Richard Blumenthal’s entrée into the senate race will raise questions concerning the over-regulation of businesses.

"Dick Blumenthal is also the ultimate regulator of business, so deeply and thoroughly that his record of reining in corporate practices is likely to dominate the general election.

"Blumenthal is no ordinary clamp-down Democrat. He tried to halt layoffs at two of America's largest corporations, calling them illegal; he lobbied the Fed to cap credit-card rate increases; he twisted the arms of bankers evicting a family from a long-foreclosed house; he settled local and national industrial pollution cases; and he tried to stop the sale of outdoor wood furnaces."
