Skip to comments.Obama Czar Resigning...Leaving Us With 1000's Of New Regulations To Strangle Business Owners With
Posted on 08/03/2012 10:32:53 AM PDT by Starman417
Obama's Regulatory Czar has resigned:
Cass Sunstein, administrator of the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the White House Office of Management and Budget, will return later this month to his previous post at Harvard Law School, the White House will announce Friday.
Obama said of Sunstein:
For the last three and a half years, Cass Sunstein has helped drive a series of historic accomplishments on behalf of the American people."
During the last 3+ years Obama and his "regulatory czar" have issued 106 new major regulations (as of March 2012).
...at a cost of more than $46 billion annually, and nearly $11 billion in one-time implementation costs. This amount is about five times the cost imposed by the prior Administration of George W. Bush.
Five times more than Bush. But wait! Didn't Obama say he issued FEWER regulations than Bush?
Ive approved fewer regulations in the first three years of my presidency than my Republican predecessor did in his.
Oh, it gets worse:
The Obama team has launched the greatest regulatory barrage in history. It just hasn't taken effect -- yet. I won't even take up the red ink and red tape involved in Obamacare. Just take one other example: the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (called by IBD the Dodd-Frankenstein Bill).

Don’t leave the country, Cass! Don’t make us us have to come and get you.
Rat deserts sinking ship.
Did he leave voluntarily or was he “nudged”?
Thanks for posting
The regulator is a law unto himself.
There are no checks and balances to protect you from this fourth branch of government. The regulator is king.
While Cass is one of the most dangerous members of the Kings Court one begs to wonder, Did the King even cross Cass’s line in the sand. November could be more important than I thought. Going to DEFCON 1.
Make a liist and rip them out by the roots. Czars are illegal therefore the regulations are poison fruit.
First job of the new president: cancel all regulations put in place by the Zero administration.
Oh, they can run but they can’t hide. Obama expanded the drone fleet...
Didn’t Glenn Beck say Sunstein was the “most dangerous” man in the entire gaggle of America-hating Marxist Czars?
I think he is also the husband of delusional freak Irish-born Globalist Samantha Power.
On July 4, 2008, Sunstein married Samantha Power, professor of public policy at Harvard, whom he met when they worked as advisors to Sunstein’s friend and former colleague at the University of Chicago Law School, President Barack Obama, on his presidential campaign. The wedding took place in County Kerry in Powers native Ireland.
Sunstein co-authored a 2008 paper with Adrian Vermeule, titled “Conspiracy Theories,” dealing with the risks and possible government responses to false conspiracy theories resulting from “cascades” of faulty information within groups that may ultimately lead to violence. In this article they wrote, “The existence of both domestic and foreign conspiracy theories, we suggest, is no trivial matter, posing real risks to the governments antiterrorism policies, whatever the latter may be.” They go on to propose that, “the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups”, where they suggest, among other tactics, “Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action.”
"My work here is done."
.. and have the czar take with him the rules he used to fetter us!
Here's how President Obama's head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and author of "Repulblic.com," Cass Sunstein, describes FreeRepublic.com as "group polarization," where people segregate themselves so effectively online with other like-minded thinkers that they create an echo chamber where the group's worst and most malevolent opinions get reinforced and strengthened.
"'We might want to consider,' Sunstein startlingly told the Times recently, 'the possibility of ways of requiring or encouraging sites [like FR] to link to opposing viewpoints.'"
