This report shows that attacks on a variety of common-sense regulations over the past eight years have taken a great toll on the United States.

The storytelling style of the report, crafted by freelance writer and author Osha Gray Davidson, helps readers begin to understand how much damage has been done under the watch of George W. Bush and his vice president, Richard B. Cheney.
