It seems to me that in order to combat all this, we should talk about reforming the Democratic Party into the party that likes to save peoples’ lives.

Prohibits the importation, manufacture, processing and distribution of products containing asbestos. The ban covers the 6 regulated forms of asbestos and 3 durable fibers. The EPA will issue rules to ensure asbestos products are off the shelves within 2 years of the bill’s enactment.
