While President-elect Donald Trump is busy putting together a conservative cabinet that will work strongly together to help “Make America Great Again”, President Obama has been busy too. That’s right! Since his days are numbered, Obama is in a hurry to make sure he not only sets a record for number of rules and regulations in a year, but he’s busy doing whatever he can to put the final touches on adding more strangulations to the economy.
How insane is that? Does Obama really believe that adding MORE regulations will improve our economy? Either Obama is just as out of touch as Hillary is when it comes to American’s major concerns about jobs, or he’s just trying to create more havoc for Trump prior to his inauguration.
H/T Washington Examiner:
President Obama has just set a new record for rules and regulations, his administration spitting out 527 pages worth in just one day, as he races to put his fingerprint on virtually every corner of American life and business.
According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the administration has just shattered the old record for pages of regulations and rules published by the in-house journal, the Federal Register.
At 81,640 total pages for 2016, it ranks first and 235 pages more than all of those published in 2010, the previous record.
What’s unbelievable is that there are still about 26 working days left in the year.
“No one knows what the future holds, but at a pace of well over 1,000 pages weekly, the Federal Register could easily top 90,000 pages this year. The simple algebra says that at the current pace we’ll add 11,190 pages over the next 44 days, to end 2016 at around 92,830 pages,” said CEI’s Clyde Wayne Crews.
“This is astonishing and should be of great concern, and intolerable, to policymakers. It is remarkable enough that the all-time record has been passed before Thanksgiving,” he added.
Obama has promised to regulate by executive authority, but the sheer number of pages of regulations being rushed through is astonishing.
It’s certainly no surprise to me? How about you? I mean come on! Americans want jobs, but businesses can’t create new jobs with all these regulations that are strangling our economy. On top of that, Obama OWNS 7 out of 10 of the HIGHEST records of the Federal Register counts. Yet Obama STILL has the nerve to tell President-elect Trump to make good on his promises and cut regulations.
All’s I can say is – January 20th, 2017 can’t come soon enough!
