After Eight Years Of Drowning In Obama’s Regulations, America Can Come Up For Air ^ | 1/17/2017 | Rep. Scott DesJarlais

Posted on 01/17/2017 7:17:35 AM PST by rktman

The Obama Administration has set records for new pages of federal regulations, issuing more “midnight” regulations during the President’s last days in office – the lame-duck period after November’s election – than any other. The conservative American Action Forum describes 31 new regulations as “economically significant,” costing at least $100 million annually.

The burden falls heaviest on small businesses, costing each an estimated $30,000 per employee, and the economy as a whole $2 trillion every year. As a result of regulations such as Obamacare, small businesses are disappearing and jobs along with them. The labor force participation rate is at a generational low, and the real unemployment rate may be as high as 10 percent, taking into account Americans who have given up looking for work or stuck in part-time jobs.

Maybe a "DOH" moment since any EOs issued can be negated by another EO. Stroke of a pen, 'law' nixed. Rules and regs created from thin air, evaporated/zapped. BOOM!

The head of the EPA dared Trump to make changes. I suspect Trump will change him out at 12:01PM Friday.

Unleash freedom on the people, and watch everything else fall into place.

I think Carl Icahn is heading up some advisory position on regulations. Good.

Hopefully the message will not be lost on the individual states.

If Trump goes full speed signing revocation orders and tweeting the reasons why, the left will soon have to focus on things other than Russia.

FR: Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

I respectfully disagree with Rep. Scott DesJarlais’ critique of Obama Administration.

Patriots are reminded that the corrupt Obama Administration is not the legislative branch.

In fact, not only did the corrupt, RINO-controlled Congress let last-term, lawless Obama get away with stealing legislative powers to oppress the states and their citizens, but most of those legislative powers were stolen state powers imo. (Patriots need to reconsider the 22nd Amendment. Corrupt Congress exploits the 22nd Amendment by letting misguided, last-term presidents like Obama get away with doing anything that they want to do.)

Drain the swamp! Drain the swamp!

Remember in November ’18 !

Since Trump entered the ’16 presidential race too late for patriots to make sure that there were state sovereignty-respecting candidates on the primary ballots, patriots need make sure that such candidates are on the ’18 primary ballots so that they can be elected to support Trump in draining the unconstitutionally big federal government swamp.

Such a Congress will also be able to finish draining the swamp with respect to getting the remaining state sovereignty-ignoring, activist justices off of the bench.

Noting that the primaries start in Iowa and New Hampshire in February ‘18, patriots need to challenge candidates for federal office in the following way.

Patriots need to qualify candidates by asking them why the Founding States made the Constitution’s Section 8 of Article I; to limit (cripple) the federal government’s powers.

Patriots also need to find candidates that are knowledgeable of the Supreme Court's clarifications of the federal government’s limited powers listed below.
