Conservatives argue government regulation hampers business and harms job growth. But others insist Wall Street and corporate America must be regulated to safeguard our economy, protect our environment, and defend the rights of all citizens. What do you think? 📈

Do fantasy sports really needs to be regulated? Should little kids need licenses to run lemonade stands? Should the government care if people want to sunbathe topless? With the numerous crises facing our nation, many people just want the government to get out of the way. We need to make it easier for people to start businesses, not more difficult.

Whether it’s our bedroom, our wallet, our medicine cabinet, or our refrigerator, there seems no area of our life that lawmakers don’t believe it is their business to regulate according to their morals, judgment, preferences, or whims.
