Regulating Deregulation? Republican would allow dirty Restaurant employee hands.

How much deregulation are Republicans hoping for now that they control of congress? They shamefully have no limit. This is one of the most convoluted small government ideas yet:
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.)  suggestion was that rules requiring restaurant workers to wash their hands before leaving the restroom are unnecessary.
"I don't have any problem with Starbucks if they choose to opt out of this policy as long as they post a sign that says we don't require our employees to wash their hands after leaving the restroom. The market will take care of that. It's one example," he said.
Mandated disclosure -- posting a sign announcing to customers that employees are not washing their hands … It's not clear whether the senator's solution would actually do anything to advance the free market beyond replacing one sign with another.
