I am referring to post-Reagan deregulatory efforts and general republican economic principles. I'm not talking about the original deregulatory efforts, but current republican sentiment. Wright was a Democrat. As was Cannon.
By and large, I believe the Democrats favor deregulation as well, hell everybody can appreciate the efficiency of free markets except rent-seeking entrenched industries. With Congress chock-full of evangelical deregulationists, I can't believe the objections of a handful of myopic Republican congressmen would keep Wright from being repealed.
