Obama legacy defined by government overreach. —>
President Barack Obama set a new record for regulations on 11/17 after his administration pushed 527 pages through in just one 24 hour period according to records unearthed by The Washington Examiner.
“No one knows what the future holds, but at a pace of well over 1,000 pages weekly, the Federal Register could easily top 90,000 pages this year. The simple algebra says that at the current pace we’ll add 11,190 pages over the next 44 days, to end 2016 at around 92,830 pages,” CEI’s Clyde Wayne Crews said to the Examiner.
“This is astonishing and should be of great concern, and intolerable, to policymakers. It is remarkable enough that the all-time record has been passed before Thanksgiving.”
Obama has exploited the power of executive action and pages worth of regulations to subvert Congress and by definition, the checks and balances within government.
