(NationalSentinel) Fulfilling another major campaign promise this morning, President Donald J. Trump took aim at the mountain of federal regulations, with an overall goal of cutting them by as much as 75 percent before he’s through.
The president issued an executive order that seeks to dramatically reduce the number of regulations he knows are choking the life out of the U.S. economy and keeping it from growing to heights never before seen in the history of the country.
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.
In addition to reducing wasteful duplication, Trump seeks to dramatically roll back the cost of rules on the economy, estimated by the National Association of Manufacturing to be more than $2 trillion a year.
As with previous executive orders, this one exempts the military, as well as national security and foreign policy departments.
Is that really what we voted for? Sure it is. What occurred Tuesday was a complete repudiation of President Obama’s big government agenda, which Hillary Clinton had pledged to continue. It was a complete repudiation of the Marxist government religion now practiced by most Democrats.
Americans rejected Obamacare. They rejected Left-wing radicalism in the federal courts. They rejected higher costs for business. They rejected job-killing regulations that targeted entire industries. They rejected the one-size-fits-all approach of an overreaching federal bureaucracy.
It is becoming more and more apparent why U.S. corporations took Trump at his word when they promised him they would keep American jobs in the U.S. instead of off-shoring them elsewhere.
It would make a great visual seeing the president take an actual chainsaw to the federal rule book, but for now, all he needs is a pen.
