President Trump has saved taxpayers more than $86 billion in regulatory costs during his first three months in the White House, according to a new study from a conservative group.
The American Action Forum (AAF) points to several Obama-era regulations that Trump has either rolled back on his own or with the help of Republican lawmakers using the Congressional Review Act (CRA).
This includes the Education Department’s school accountability standards, the Environmental Protection Agency’s waters of the United States rule and the so-called “blacklisting” rule for government contractors.
These are just a few examples mentioned in the report. Since taking office, Trump and Congress have repealed 13 rules with the CRA. The CRA allows lawmakers to overturn recent rules they disapprove of with a simple majority in Congress, and send the action to the president for his signature.
“Just as there are fiscal costs for new significant rules, there can be savings from repealing old rules through comprehensive regulatory reform,” said Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy at the AAF.
Proponents of stronger regulation warn that critics often assess only the costs of these rules, but overlook the financial benefits they create.

The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

I'll have to wait and see if anything he does actually can be recognized by the general population at large as helping them or our "general condition" (border security & reducing Illegal Immigration by enforcing laws, for example) and if it effects me personally. I'm reasonably sure he'll get to that or other points of recognition.

Now if only the few Dem voters with half a brain (if there are any left) would read this and understand it maybe we could get a few more votes next time around. Not holding my breath but a little wishful thinking.

Now if he can just pen executive order naming Anifta a terrorist organization and arrest them all....Sigh.

You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn't? Yeah, I don't have one of those.
How to piss off a conservative, lie to them. How to piss off a liberal, tell them the truth.
