Obama Generates More Regulations than Jobs, 68 per Day

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


To be fair many of these regulations do require hiring more government workers, but that’s more than offset by the amount of jobs lost through these regulations. And the giant taxes that it takes to subsidize this monstrosity.

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.

Another 4 years or 1460 days will give us a whopping 100,000 new regulations. Or to put it another way, there are around 1,000 babies born in the District of Columbia every year. In those four years, 25 times more regulations than children will come out of DC.

DC produces around 3 babies a day and 68 regulations a day. There is something seriously wrong when that is the case.

    Goody, more red tape. [/sarcasm]

    Just more evidence that Leftists are just control freaks at heart.

    But they cannot uphold established laws like immigration.

    Obama produces tons of hot air blathering hollow platitudes and empty promises, churns out reams of useless regulations and rules which will never be used and wastes endless amounts of time admiring his cleverness and stage appearance .

    It's a huge waste until you find the information he is hiding in the mess . Like the 21 taxes in Ocare.

    Great graphics. This one reminds me of Kafka; black and white, rows and rows of filing cabinets with a person trying to find the exit sign. I particularly liked the one that depicted Obama as a vampire on the Statue of Liberty. No explanation needed there.

    Obama's war on capitalism / the private sector. Wednesday MANY business owners flew their American flag upside down at half staff & mourned the death of capitalism. If you happened by one that is what it meant.

    People are so dumb..i love reading posts. Obama has extended the bush tax cuts..lowered the payroll tax for companies and people still spew out that he is against capitalism because Romney's campaign used that as a talking point..wake up sheep!!!!

    Hey Joe is business hates Obama so much why did they increase hiring before the election so unemployment rates went down???? Hmmm if they really did no like him they should have done the layoffs before the election to make unemployment even worse.
