Trump vs Obama on regulations

A bit of progress.

October 12, 2017: As of September 30, the Federal Register for this year totaled 45,678 pages. That reflects a 32 percent decline from the comparable time frame during President Barack Obama’s final year in office. (Last year’s total through September was 67,900 pages.)

Still busy regulating but. OK some of the rules are eliminating rules. Still some way to go to achieve deregulation. Check out number of staff and the cost of regulation agencies which is only the tip of the iceberg of the cost of regulations.

The Trump administration has implemented 2,183 new rules so far in 2017. That’s down from the 2,686 rules implemented by the Obama administration in the first nine months of 2016.[1] Some of the Trump administration rules eliminated rules from the Obama administration, so the actual gap in new rules may be even larger.

    Totally meaningless stats.

    “Totally meaningless stats.”

    To parasitic SJWs and green blob alarmist, pessimistic worriers, that’s no doubt true.

    To those who actually produce things of value sold on the free market, it’s a significant roll-back on the “make-work” red and green tape required to do business. That will lead to greater investment, more and better paying jobs, and higher profits. Likely also to result in higher tax revenues – a smaller slice of a much larger pie, as it were. It’s win-win – unless you are part of the green blob crony capitalist brigade, or one of those SJWs who insists that “equality” means equality of outcomes rather than equality of opportunity.

    And at least Trump is undoing some of the damage done by the left – unlike Turncoat and co, who now seem bent on trying to out bid the other mob in trying to buy your vote.
