To be fair many of these regulations do require hiring more government workers, but that’s more than offset by the amount of jobs lost through these regulations. And the giant taxes that it takes to subsidize this monstrosity.
It’s Friday morning, and so far today, the Obama administration has posted 165 new regulations and notifications on its reguations.gov website.
In the past 90 days, it has posted 6,125 regulations and notices – an average of 68 a day.
Another 4 years or 1460 days will give us a whopping 100,000 new regulations. Or to put it another way, there are around 1,000 babies born in the District of Columbia every year. In those four years, 25 times more regulations than children will come out of DC.
DC produces around 3 babies a day and 68 regulations a day. There is something seriously wrong when that is the case.
