Spring cleaning is a healthy tradition. If only politicians did it! The clutter of complex laws and ridiculous regulations gets worse every day. We could move about so much more freely if our lives weren't buried in government's junk!

It's time we give government that overdue cleaning, says John Stossel, who suggests the best way to clean house would be to pass "the Stossel Rule." It's simple: For every new regulation bureaucrats pass, they must repeal five old ones.
