Republicans and regulations

I’m sure this isn’t an original idea, but compare these two situations:

  • The financial industry helps crash the world economy. Republicans oppose almost all new regulations to stop this from happening again.
  • There is almost no evidence of in person voter fraud. Republicans propose new voter ID regulation to stop this almost non-existent problem.

Republicans like to say they are against burdensome regulation, but it seems they only oppose it if it affects businesses not individuals (look at abortion to see another case where they support burdensome regulation).
