I am reminded of recent Congressional hearings concerning the lack of effectiveness of abstinence-only sex education at which a congressman (in all seriousness) to the effect of, "What makes these people think that because they have PhDs and have done studies and research that they know better than parents about what works best?"  While congressional hearings do not always come out against the best science available on a subject, I don't believe that you could argue there is a strong positive causal relationship, either.

Does anyone think that this is at least naïve, or perhaps (more directly) a ridiculous statement? 

After all, history has shown our politicians are somewhat unqualified as scientific arbiters....

I think we in the U.S. need to organize a direct-to-congress campaign of truth in advertising when it comes to safety provisions, asking each congressperson to hold committee hearings.  Surely more government is the last, best hope for science.  Unless, of course, science doesn't need a currency.
