This new Act could hurt millions of Americans in an economy that already is in trouble. It can affect which items can be sold in Thrift/Consignment stores. It can also hurt the mother who tries to sell a few items from home to supplement income, the small time business owner, etc....Please go to http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vY29vbG1vbXBpY2tzLmNvbS9zYXZlaGFuZG1hZGUv for more information, vote to change the new Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act that will pass on Feb 10th.I personally feel this is too much government in our daily lives. They should not be able to dictate what a person sells like this, or what a person buys. We should be able to use our own common sense- esp on items handmade with love.
According to the new law I would not be able to sell my Tag A Longs anymore. So this does personally affect me. I just sold two online at Etsy yesterday. This is just one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of! While it may have some great intentions like helping to avoid lead in products, it hinders our lives in way to many other ways.
Government going overboard!
Why should a consumer not be able to buy one of these items from me, if they wanted to. If this is something that you would like to take a moment of time on, please check out the link.
