Why is it everyone is arguing who's better when the truth is that most of them are in it for the almighty $$$$$. Big money comes in and influences the politicians who in turn make legislation to support their donors and lobbyists. Why else was corporations determined to be people??? Why is it that they spend more $ to get elected or re-elected than what they will make in salary????

Here we go!!!!

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.

The website allows visitors to find and comment on proposed regulations and related documents published by the U.S. federal government.“Help improve Federal regulations by submitting your comments,” the website says.

The thousands of entries run the gamut from meeting notifications to fee schedules to actual rules and proposed rule changes.

In recent days, for example, the EPA posted a proposed rule involving volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings:“We are approving a local rule that regulates these emission sources under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act),” the proposed rule states.“We are taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final action.”

Another proposed rule will provide guidance for FDA staff on “enforcement criteria for canned ackee, frozen ackee, and other ackee products that contain hypoglycin A.”(Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica; unripened or inedible portions can be toxic.)

Some of the proposed regulations revise regulations already on the books.

The website also links to a video of a speech President Barack Obama gave at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 7, 2011, in which the president promised to remove “outdated and unnecessary regulations.”

“I’ve ordered a government-wide review, and if there are rules on the books that are needlessly stifling job creation and economic growth, we will fix them,” the president said.

A number of groups, including the Competitive Enterprise Institute, expect a rush of new regulations now that President Obama has won a second term:

CEI expects the EPA to move ahead on delayed rules on everything from greenhouse gas emissions to ozone standards.“Rules from the health care bill and the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill will also likely make themselves known in the weeks to come,” the group said on its website.

California ought to be interesting to watch. The way I understand it, the democrats now have what is called a super majority.

They can approve tax increases or close loopholes on businesses. Pass emergency legislation.(wonder what they would consider that to be) Override govenor vetos, and change house rules.

All by themselves. No citizen vote necessary.

Now, I'm sure if I read it wrong I will be corrected really fast. And no, I don't have a link. Everyone will have to look it up. I checked it because I caught something about it on the news.

Yea they care. They care for themselves. Its like I've said a million times. If someone ran and donated all their campaign money to the the deficit. That would have went further with people then the rigged debates and endless negative attack ads!!
