ENOUGH ALREADY! Congress Tells Obama To STOP Issuing New Regulations

Does America need any more illustration of the classlessness of the Obama administration? When Bush was leaving office, the incoming Obama administration asked that the outgoing administration stand down on policy implementation. So, you would think they would follow suit as they shuffle out the door. Not so much.

IJR reported this:

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, along with the 21 committee chairmen, wrote in a letter to Obama’s agencies:

“Should you ignore this counsel, please be aware that we will work with our colleagues to ensure that Congress scrutinizes your actions — and, if appropriate, overturns them — pursuant to the Congressional Review Act.”

In a meeting last month with reporters, McCarthy cited Emanuel’s letter as precedent for their own.

Shortly after, the White House signaled it would not stop issuing regulations in the final weeks of the administration.

So, a group of senators sent a letter. And guess what! The Obama administration didn’t stop.

Yet, here we are at the end of the year, with Trump’s transition fully underway, and the Obama administration is still rolling out new rules.

A little more than a week following Election Day, the administration unveiled 527 new pages of regulations, breaking its own record for a single year.

American Lookout has already published information on how Obama is rushing to downsize Gitmo and put a halt on off shore oil drilling. Now he also wants to also restrict future coal mining.

January 20, 2017 can’t come soon enough.
