I need a word that describes someone who advocates for harmful laws or policies; it would describe someone who writes policy without listening to the people it affects or someone who doesn't pay attention to actual effects of that policy, kind of like politically or socially tone-deaf. They might continue to stand behind that policy even after it was proven to be ineffective or harmful.
It would be like ignorant or deluded, but specifically regarding knowledge of people's situations or societal problems and solutions. A word to describe the actions of that person would be helpful as well. As an example:
It was very __ of the senator to vote for the harmful bill that would require every homeless person to own a car.
The word wouldn't refer to someone doing this knowingly and maliciously, but I would like it to have a negative connotation.
