Should government be allowed to sell allegedly dangerous trailers?

In an auction, the federal government has agreed to sell most of the 120,000 formaldehyde-tainted trailers it bought for Hurricane Katrina victims. But the sale of the units has triggered a new round of charges that it is endangering future buyers for years to come.

So, should the government be allowed to sell trailers it deemed unsafe to live in? Weigh in below.

The trailers are not "allegedly" dangerous. They were found to be dangerous. That's why they weren't used after Katrina.

We should not have bought them in the first place. Who made out on that deal! I'd sue the contractor who sold them to us but he's probably in Chapter 11.
