Conservatives have spent eight long years dealing with Barack Obama’s ridiculous policies. Now, Republican lawmakers are doing something to make sure that we won’t have to deal with Obama’s various agendas much longer.
Right Wing News reported that Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) has teamed up with various other Republican members of the House Freedom Caucus are tirelessly working on a list of 200 regulations that Donald Trump can nix on the first day of his presidency. CNN is already whining about this, saying that doing away with these regulations is unfair because conservatives attacked Obama for doing the same thing. Meadows, however, isn’t having any of it.
“We’re not suggesting overreach because that would be hypocrisy in the first degree,” Meadows explained. “We’re looking at the overreach we’ve seen in the last eight years and rolling that back.”
One example Meadows provided was how the FDA has regulations on what size their breath mints can be, an insane requirement that slows down their regulations process.
“Anything that should require Congress to act we left off of the report,” he explained, according to Town Hall. “It’s not taking checks and balances out of the system.”
During his time in the White House, Obama has repeatedly bypassed Congress to force all of us to bow to his will as if he is king. With this move, conservatives are finally taking back control.
