A Sobering Look At The Coming Obama 2.0 Regulationpalooza
This is a lengthy piece, but well worth the read.
It not only gives a detailed breakdown of what might be expected for the second term (and why), but also how much hyper-regulation cost us during the first term and what can be done about it. Here's the conclusion, for those unwilling to go through the entire thing:
For the next four years, congressional Republicans will have limited opportunities to check the regulatory state—oversight hearings, holds on executive branch nominations, and budget authority. But looking to the long run, the much more difficult question is how they will reform the regulatory state, under a future Republican president, to prevent us from returning time and time again to this dangerous moment.
Four more years.
