Congress Needs to Retake Control of Federal Regs, Return Power to the People
- BY Nick Stehle
Who should rule the American people? The Democrats, despite their name, have all but answered, “unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats.”
Republicans, by contrast, are rallying around the radical idea that Americans should rule ourselves.
This became clear Wednesday, when GOPers in the House passed the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act, which would require that Congress approve or reject every major regulation, defined as costing $100 million or more a year, advanced by executive agencies.
If our elected representatives approve a new mandate, it goes into effect; if they vote it down, it dies.
