Romney was governor of Massachusetts at the time when the pharmaceutical firm responsible for the meningitis outbreak was producing its tainted steroid medication. There were warnings that the production was unsanitary, but Romney declined to go through with any official action against the company, because it would be bad for business. I hope the grieving relatives of the people who died appreciate how much more important that company's bottom line was than the safety of their loved ones. After all, government should never, ever impose regulations on business, should it? The free market can take care of itself and regulate itself, and a few needless deaths is the price we should willingly pay.
