Trump axes 860 Obama regulations, 179 from ‘secret’ list

July 21, 2017

Trump_35641.jpg-6ce96_c0-0-4689-2733_s885x516White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney accused the Obama administration Thursday of keeping a “secret list” of proposed regulations during Mr. Obama’s eight-year regulatory onslaught against businesses, and touted President Trump’s rollback of more than 800 Obama-era rules and proposals.

Of the 860 rules or proposed rules that the Trump administration has killed, 179 came from what he called Mr. Obama’s “secret” list. As Trump aides combed through the books, they found pending proposals that included rules on hardwood plywood research and new requirements for contamination control in cattle slaughter operations.

“They had a bunch of things that they wanted to regulate,” Mr. Mulvaney said of the Obama administration’s first term. “They just didn’t want to tell you about it. They thought it would be bad for their re-election prospects in 2012, so they created a secret list of regs that were not disclosed to you folks. We are disclosing it.”

When Trump officials threatened to disclose the list, Mr. Mulvaney said, bureaucrats in various Cabinet agencies “came up with those 860 things that we got rid of.”

    There should be no surprise. It was a progressive/socialistic administration. Progressive/socialism (a variation of the Carl Marx political doctrine) has never worked in any nation that has tried it. Four years of Hillary would have seen many of those enacted, just another step down the slippery slope.
    Venezuela is now in the death throws of a waltz down the progressive/socialistic path. The only questions for Venezuela is when will it collapse & how many of their own citizens will the government butcher in the process.

    Deep State globalist stooge Barack Obama wanted to regulate America into oblivion. Everything Obama did was against our Republic! Here are Obama’s motives for all the insanity he did. The Democrat Deep State wants America weakened or gone so the left’s Globalist Masters can force us into a Fascist Socialist NWO. The NWO Global government’s blueprint is UN Agenda 21 and UN Agenda 2030. The Global Government erases our nation’s borders, voids all American laws and seizes all private property. Our US Constitution will/would be worthless paper under the Deep State’s implemented UN World Government. Islam has been picked as the official religion of the NWO because of it’s intolerant and ruthless mindset which syncs right up to the Globalist intolerant and ruthless mindset. That’s their bond! All the Democrats and some Republicans want a world government. Be careful who you vote for.

    This is essentially 860 freedoms that President Trump prevented from being taken from American citizens. Kudos, Mr. President.

    Thank God for President Trump…obama was trying to grow the size of the gooberment to regulate and run your lives for you.. This is all acceptable to weak minded liberals but not to hard working Americans who pay the bills in this country..

  • dmttbt says:

    I call that progress. the democrats are saying that Trump broke his campaign promise because he hasn’t gotten rid of Obama care yet. How long did it take the democrats as a party to enact Obama care without 1 republican vote?

    Welllllll, if they were “secret,” then they were never enacted. I’d be curious about the substance, though: I may be conservative, but I do not want an entirely unregulated society.

      Secret only to the unaffected public? No secret to the “violators”?
