For the Children (Who Chew Motorbikes)!
Your Democratic majority hard at work saving the economy:
A new federal law aimed at protecting children from lead in toys has also forced a nationwide halt in sales of off-road motorcycles and recreational vehicles built for young riders, killing off a multimillion-dollar industry that was thriving despite the recession.
Thousands of powersports dealers were told to halt sales of vehicles designed for children 12 and younger because of new lead restrictions in an act of Congress that took effect Feb. 10.
Even used vehicle sales are banned by law passed in response to lead found in toys imported from China.
What thriving industry will Congress try to kill off next? Oh, wait...
