This is a terrible episode! Contradictions through the whole thing. You're trying to say, you think this is in some way a good thing, but not. I'll clear up your confusion. It has always been a very bad, greedy idea! There. All clear. Also, stop throwing America under the bus! "We'll, not here in America, but over in Europe, they're trying to change this." Then, you turn around and say that about 18 states are trying to make laws to change this. Then, what these laws are, are half baked help. You should really just throw this one out. I could hardly stand listening to the whole thing.
