President Obama has issued 145 midnight regulations with a cost of more than $21 billion since the election of Donald Trump, the most by a lame-duck president in a generation, a study has found.
The conservative American Action Forum said Thursday that Mr. Obamas rules, issued from Nov. 8 through Dec. 31 of last year, include 31 economically significant regulations with a cost of at least $100 million each.

The most transparent president in history issues record number of midnight regulations
The only thing transparent about Obama is the ability to see through him.
The antidote for their ignorance is a good dose of Jeffersonian wisdom:
26.6 Termination of An Administration
"I have thought it right to take no part myself in proposing measures, the execution of which will devolve on my successor. I am therefore chiefly an unmeddling listener to what others say. On the same ground, I shall make no new appointments which can be deferred... thinking it fair to leave to my successor to select the agents for his own administration." --Thomas Jefferson to George Logan, 1808. ME 12:219
"I should not feel justified in directing measures which those who are to execute them would disapprove." --Thomas Jefferson to Levi Lincoln, 1808. ME 12:195
"[My predecessor in the office of the President made several] last appointments to office... [which] were among my most ardent political enemies, from whom no faithful cooperation could ever be expected, and laid me under the embarrassment of acting through men whose views were to defeat mine, or to encounter the odium of putting others in their places. It seems but common justice to leave a successor free to act by instruments of his own choice." --Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1804. ME 11:29
"It would be with extreme reluctance that, so near the time of my own retirement, I should proceed to name any high officer, especially one who must be of the intimate councils of my successor, and who ought of course to be in his unreserved confidence." --Thomas Jefferson to Henry Dearborn, 1808. ME 12:64
"It is but common decency to leave to my successor the moulding of his own business." --Thomas Jefferson to William Short, 1793. ME 9:12
Thomas Jefferson was indeed a man of wisdom and integrity, those qualities are not shared by the current _resident.
As transparent as a layer in his fake birth certificate
all that crap will be wipe out or defunded.
All 145 must be revoked, repealed, or challenged in lawsuits where the federal government fights to lose. If a regulation wasn’t worth creating before the election or in the first seven and three-quarter years of this national disaster, it has no business being created now. Wipe the slate clean. As for those from before the election, most should be erased, cancelled, or repealed too, but they should at least be read first.
