VIDEO: Montana Rep jumps shark, calls drunk driving laws ‘job killers’

Republican lawmakers have made opposition to industry regulation a top priority, repeatedly framing public health and safety laws as "nanny state" "job killers."

In his ridiculous insincerity, Hale made a satire of GOP politics that would have made Jon Stewart proud.
