I could not help but laugh when I saw the proclamation posted later in the day March 6. It proclaims March 5 through March 11, 2017 National Consumer Protection Week. This administration, especially obvious through cabinet appointments, is so far from being interested in protecting consumers and yet, this proclamation would have us believe otherwise. It is a little hard to take this seriously when it is posted late in the day after the week it designates began. I wonder if anyone in this administration saw the irony.
I’ve often wondered just how much difference presidential or congressional proclamations really make. I’m sure they are important to the groups promoting them, but do they have any significant impact on the general population?
