Obama: America's Gone Soft | Main | Vacation This Week
September 30, 2011

Hey, What Happened To Obama's Promise To Review Regulations And End Those That Were Hurting Business?

One of the chief tics of Obama's speaking style is a technique I call lying.

He likes to say things that will please the public, and demonstrate to them he is looking for a middle path.

But after the speech is over, he does not follow through on the promise.

Well, I agree that we cant afford wasteful spending, and Ill work with you, with Congress, to root it out. And I agree that there are some rules and regulations that do put an unnecessary burden on businesses at a time when they can least afford it. (Applause.) Thats why I ordered a review of all government regulations. So far, weve identified over 500 reforms, which will save billions of dollars over the next few years. (Applause.) We should have no more regulation than the health, safety and security of the American people require. Every rule should meet that common-sense test. (Applause.)

Darrell Issa released a report blasting regulatory fever.

He should call up Obama. This Obama chap seems very, very interested indeed in cutting unnecessary regulations, and wasteful spending too!
