President Obama has just set a new record for rules and regulations, his administration spitting out 527 pages worth in just one day, as he races to put his fingerprint on virtually every corner of American life and business.

According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the administration has just shattered the old record for pages of regulations and rules published by the in-house journal, the Federal Register.

At 81,640 total pages for 2016, it ranks first and 235 pages more than all of those published in 2010, the previous record.

What’s more, there are still about 26 working days left in the year.

“No one knows what the future holds, but at a pace of well over 1,000 pages weekly, the Federal Register could easily top 90,000 pages this year. The simple algebra says that at the current pace we’ll add 11,190 pages over the next 44 days, to end 2016 at around 92,830 pages,” said CEI’s Clyde Wayne Crews.

    Worthless…he can have his pen and paper…but what obama doesn’t have is enforcement….regulations are only as good as those “willing” to follow. I do believe America has given Obama, his pen and paper the finger.

    Hopefully the Trump administration will rescind or at least suspend many of these regulations on Jan. 21.

    I can’t wait for Trump to wipe away all of Barry’s efforts by the sweep of his pen by executing an Executive Order.

    There should be more regulations involving the
    investigation of the backgrounds of frauds like
    0bama before they can run for office.

  • Charles Reed

    Most likely all American break one or more rule or regulation every day without even knowing it. Its total insane to have so much regulation.

    How do you say contempt? Let me count the ways as you noted above, “At 81,640 total pages for 2016, it ranks first and 235 pages more than all of those published in 2010, the previous record.” I can’t even say what I think, it’s that bad. That was just 1 year.
