Barack Obama spent 8 years issuing hundreds of regulations that killed jobs, hurt small businesses, hurt big businesses, hurt the oil and coal industry and stripped many Americans of their rights to a livelihood and use of their own property. All of these regulations fit into Obama’s socialist agenda to deprive Americans of the way of life they are used to.
While many of the mainstream media continue to report that President Donald Trump only has one real victory under his belt for all of 2017, they ignore the fact that he has either repealed, delayed or is currently reviewing a total exceeding 1,500, surpassing the goal he originally set.
(Breitbart) – Shortly after being elected president, Donald Trump signed an executive order directing all federal agencies to find two regulations to cut for every new one issued. Agencies also were asked to pay for new regulatory costs by eliminating existing rules.
In December, Trump said the goals set out in that executive order had not only been met but exceeded.
“We blew our target out of the water,” Trump said, noting that his administration had eliminated 22 regulations for every new one put in place.
The Associated Press reported on Trump’s remarks at the White House as he stood next to giant stacks of paper representing the regulatory slashing his administration has done over the past year.
“For many decades, an ever-growing maze of regulations, rules, restrictions has cost our country trillions and trillions of dollars, millions of jobs, countless American factories, and devastated many industries,” Trump said.
The mainstream media is quick to report anything Trump does that is costly, whether real or imaginary, but they conveniently fail to report Trump’s many accomplishments that have cut spending. In the case of his actions on many regulations, Trump has cut nearly $600 million in spending and he’s not done yet.
