President Donald Trump Puts Stranglehold on Regulations

If you live by the administrative state, you die by the administrative state.  Conservatives should thank President Barack Hussein Obama for showing us the way.  He believed he could rule by bureaucrat without repercussions.  Well guess what?  That knife cuts both ways.

President Donald Trump decreed the following:

"If there's a new regulation, they have to knock out two but it goes far beyond that. We're cutting regulations massively for small business and for large business but they're different. But for small business, this is what this is about today. This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen," Trump said. "There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be a normalized control where you can open your business and expand your business very easily and that's what our country has been all about."

A senior administration official briefed on the order said federal agencies that want to enact a new regulation will have to identify two to cut based on their own estimate of the cost of those regulations to the economy and the private sector. Agencies will identify possible regulations to eliminate but the White House will ultimately decide which to cut.

“Any new incremental costs associated with new regulations shall, to the extent permitted by law, be offset by the elimination of existing costs associated with at least two prior regulations,” the order states. “Total incremental cost of all new regulations, including repealed regulations, to be finalized this year shall be no greater than zero”

President Donald Trump is becoming the Democratic Party’s worst nightmare.  Crow is tough to chew.
