Trump has been in office for a week and a half. Yes, not even two weeks. The incessant leftist whining makes it feel longer, I know. Also all the productiveness the Trump administration has been spoiling us with in that time span. Such productivity includes a border wall, less climate change agenda pushing, and no more taxpayer money going to fund foreign nations’ slaughter of the babies. So much win, so little time.
Well, Trump has come out with another order sure to make leftists soil their diapers. Spoiler: it has to do with cutting regulation…
President Donald Trump signed an order on Monday that will seek to dramatically pare back federal regulations by requiring agencies to cut two existing regulations for every new rule introduced.
“This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen. There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be normalized control,” Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office, surrounded by a group of small business owners.
Trump’s latest executive action will prepare a process for the White House to set an annual cap on the cost of new regulations, a senior official told reporters ahead of the signing.
For the rest of fiscal 2017, that cap on new regulations would be $0, the official said on customary condition of anonymity.
This is yet another good sign to come in the past week. The government’s needless over-regulations have been snuffing out American small businesses for a while now (see ‘Arrow’s’ Stephen Amell Blasts Government Over-Regulation). Of course, this won’t be a cause for liberal celebration. Likely just another reason for a
dumpster fire riot “peaceful” protest. In case you haven’t noticed, the left has a bit of a regulation fetish (see Bernie Sanders Gets Schooled in Reality by Pro-Trump Small Business Owner).
This policy will bring a halt to the growth of government. Which is almost as puffed up as Lena Dunham after a visit to Golden Corral. It would seem the left has an obsession with control. They want more government regulation. Meanwhile they fling accusations of “FASCISM!” at Trump, who’s cutting regulations. See the irony here?
