Deregulation

Stossel: Trump's Deregulation

President Trump has cut a lot of regulations—but increased some others.

President Donald Trump says he's "undertaken a historic effort to massively reduce job-killing regulations." 

People attack him for it. According to The Young Turks, Trump's deregulation "singlehandedly led the world down a dark path."  

The left-wing Economic Policy Institute think tank claims "workers' health, safety, and pay are among the casualties."

But deregulation creates wealth. 

"Trump sent a message to business: 'We're not going to crush you.' And that's caused growth," Stossel says to Grover Norquist—who runs Americans for Tax Reform, which fights for lower taxes and fewer rules.

"That was the beginning of a recovery," Norquist responds.

The stock market has risen by about a third since Trump was elected.

Trump has cut hundreds of regulations, including an EPA rule about "waters of the United States" that the agency said gave them power to regulate virtually everyone's land. 

The EPA was regulating "little trickles, and the kind of ponds that spring up when it rains a lot one night," says Norquist. "They were using it as land control."

Stossel reported how Jill and Jack Baron, in Idaho, were encouraged by state officials to unclog a drainage ditch—but when they did so, federal officials went after them in court, fining them thousands of dollars a day.

Deregulation saved the Barons, who now have use of their land again.

"We have our land back! Without the change in the White House and the EPA nothing would have changed," Jill Baron writes.

Trump also repealed Obama's new "CAFE" standards—meant to force car makers to produce more fuel-efficient cars. The Obama administration wanted all car makers' fleets to get an average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The Trump administration scrapped that, although California may keep the tougher rules.

Trump also ended the previous administration's "net neutrality" rules.

Democrats predicted doom. One Federal Communications Commission official said Trump was "handing the keys to the internet over to a handful of multi-billion-dollar corporations."

Opponents feared that those corporations would jack up prices or slow some website speeds. None of that's happened, Stossel and Norquist note.

Another regulation Trump cancelled would have treated franchise companies like McDonalds as one single business.  

Norquist explains why the Obama administration wanted that: "The trial lawyers want to be able to sue all of McDonald's, not just the local McDonald's, if [someone] spills coffee on themselves. And the labor unions wanted to unionize all of McDonald's, not just the one store…that would have been a disaster. That was ended."

But sometimes, Trump adds new regulations—he's mandated that government buy products made in America, and he's added tariffs on lots of imports. 

"Trump is a protectionist in many ways, and tariffs are taxes and…regulations on consumers," Norquist says. 

"The good news is, the vast majority of the regulatory acts by a factor of many have been deregulatory and they have been tremendously helpful," Norquist says. "He's done a great deal more than anybody in recent history…maybe even more than Reagan did." 

By some measures, he did

Trump claims to have cut 22 rules for every new regulation. He exaggerates, as usual. The real number is about five regulations repealed for every new one passed, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute

Still, whether it's 5 or 22, It's good whenever excessive regulations are cut. Regulations take our time, opportunity, and our freedom.

  1. Trump is a protectionist in many ways, and tariffs are taxes and…regulations on consumers,” Norquist says.

    “The good news is, the vast majority of the regulatory acts by a factor of many have been deregulatory and they have been tremendously helpful,” Norquist says. “He’s done a great deal more than anybody in recent history…maybe even more than Reagan did.”

    Other than a few tariffs on China and some threats towards Mexico, what protectionism has Trump engaged in? Trump is much less protectionist than Reagan. Reagan put huge tariffs on foreign cars and electronics. Those went way beyond anything Trump has done.

    I like Reagan as much as the next guy. But Reagan’s achievements were winning the cold war and cutting taxes. His achievements in deregulation are largely figments of the myth built around him by supporters. Trump is by far and away the most anti regulation President since Harding and Coolidge.

    1. John blows it AGAIN!

      But Reagan’s achievements were winning the cold war and cutting taxes.

      His economy was a MASSIVE achievement. Trump’s a massive failure. Reagan took a FAR worse economy than Obama, and created a recovery in half the time, and 5 times stronger.

      His achievements in deregulation are largely figments of the myth built around him by supporters.

      You were already a liar.

      And you, like Stossel’s latest FRAUD, falsely conflate the FAILING economy with dereg … according to that commie pinko media, Fox News.

      1. But, even under St. Reagan, Govt. spending grew, taxes grew, the FED BEAST Govt. grew, & regulations grew etc…..So, basically THEY ALL SUCK!!!!

        1. YOU LOSE!!!

          REPUBLICANS buried spending cuts, that would have saved $10 TRILLION by 2000. (Cato estimate). Google “Grace Commission” — sent actual accountants and hands-on managers out into the departments … to find REAL waste.

          REPUBLICANS killed his consolidation of programs into a single level of government … instead of 2-3 levels — so SOMEBODY could be held accountable. Google “New Federalism”

          REPUBLICANS, AGAIN the very worst EVER on spending/deficits/economy.

          THEY ALL SUCK!!!!

          Both PARTIES suck … because most voters are as clueless as you … and/or swallow bullshit from losers like Stossel (and John, a major bullshitter, as PROVEN here)

          Anything else?

        2. taxes grew

          LIAR

    2. Trump is much less protectionist than Reagan. Reagan put huge tariffs on foreign cars and electronics. Those went way beyond anything Trump has done.

      LIAR. PROVE IT.

      https://money.cnn.com/2016/07/27/news/economy/donald-trump-ronald-reagan-trade-japan/index.html

      Winston has studied the impact of one of Reagan’s first trade tactics against Japan — a quota imposed in 1981 on the number of Japanese cars that could come into the U.S. every year.

      It came at a time when the U.S. economy was in recession in the early 1980s, unemployment was rising towards 10% and inflation was high.(((DOUBLE-DIGIT)))

      PSST, still the worst recession since the 1930s, with double-digit inflation and 10% unemployment … versus the longest recovery ever (FROM OBAMA), LOW inflation and LOW unemployment.

      Trumpsters be scurrying about, like cockroaches, spreading their mind-control lies. So Trump will give them a cookie.

    3. Two Hihnsocks in a row! That’s impressive, John.

      1. I live inside his head. I sometimes feel guilty about it but then I realize the crazy bastard deserves whatever he gets.

        1. Lots of space, but the neighborhood’s a little dicey.

          1. PROOF = WHINING. (lol)

        2. I live inside his head. I sometimes feel guilty about it but then I realize the crazy bastard deserves whatever he gets.

          Wait for it ….

          FOX NEWS: Trump in big trouble for 2020. Political and economic warning signs there for all to see

          The strong economy Trump touts is anything but and the signs are obvious.

          First, Trump cut taxes and said it would pay for itself. Instead, it has exploded the deficit. President Barack Obama inherited a trillion-dollar budget deficit in 2009, but it was down to $600 billion by the time he left office. In just two years, thanks to tax cuts, Trump has taken the deficit back to a trillion dollars. And on “Fox News Sunday,” White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow admitted that the administration is looking at more tax cuts.

          Next, Trump said China would bear the costs of his trade war with them. Really? Trump’s suspension of additional tariffs is an admission that they have been hurting American consumers despite his claims to the contrary. In the Fox News Poll, 46 percent said tariffs were hurting the economy. Americans know the cost of everything has increased while their paychecks haven’t increased.

          The fact is Trump’s best economic growth is 3.5 percent in two quarters out of the 10 quarters he’s been in office, CNBC’s John Harwood reports, adding that same growth figure, 3.5 percent, is Obama’s seventh best quarter, George W. Bush’s eighth best, and Bill Clinton’s 17th best. Yet, Trump claims his economy is the best ever. Far from it.

          If that wasn’t bad enough, a staggering 59 percent of voters think Trump is tearing the country apart.

          Fox News leaves Trumpsters all alone, twisting in the wind …

          Obama inherited the 2nd worst economy since the 1930s
          Trump started with the longest recovery EVER for an incoming President … FROM OBAMA … and is WORSE than Obama on the economy and the worst EVER on debt, which he campaigned on PAYING OFF!

          Trump is the biggest clusterfuck since FDR. … per FOX NEWS

          Left – Right = Zero

          1. Left and Right are opposites. Thus, Left = -Right.

            Left – Right = Left – (-Left)

            Left-Right = Further Left.

            1. DUMBFUCK FLUNKS ALGEBRA — A 7TH GRADE COURSE!

              Left – Right Zero ,…. Stated AFTER PROOF

              Both have equal VALUE … DUH.
              Like A – A = Zero

              Or

              LOTSA screeching and childish “fuckoffs” because LOSE ON FACTS. … so BULLY.

            1. No. (smirk)

              1. It won’t be up to you soon. Not after you are locked up against your will in the nuthouse. Probably in the hospice wing. That’s how it will end for you Hihn. Strapped down in a straitjacket, unable to shitpost here. Stewing in your own feces, drugged out of your mind on Thorazine.

                You will die, alone, a legacy of gibbering stupidity. Mostly known for racing like and idiot and eating your own fecal matter.

                Fuckety bye!

                1. Hey, Nick, he’s getting CRAZIER. Why does Reason DEFEND this psychopathic attack on …. libertarian values … like NAP?

                  (shudder)

                  1. You should shudder you shit eating psychopath. You’re going to get committed.

                    1. You already are.

                    2. Anybody who would post such insane nonsense must be crazy enough IRL to actually be committed… It’s kind of sad because he has very rarely posted coherent things. It’s likes shades of what he must have been like before he went off the deep end. Poor bastard.

                    3. Poor bastard.

                      He’s PROUD to be a Shitlord .. and a crazed bully asshole thug.

                    4. MORE Trump FAILURES

                      Deficit to top $1 trillion per year by 2020, CBO says

                      America’s deficit is rising sharply and will surpass $1 trillion per year by 2020, a gap that has grown since Congress cut taxes and increased spending, the Congressional Budget Office reported Monday.

                      The federal deficit — the gap between how much the government takes in and how much it spends — will hit $804 billion in fiscal 2018, up 21 percent from 2017, the CBO said.

                      “The federal budget deficit grows substantially over the next several years,” CBO Budget Director Keith Hall said Wednesday after his agency released the report. “Federal debt is projected to be on a steadily rising trajectory throughout the decade.”

                      During debate on the bill, Republican leaders predicted that their proposal would spark massive economic growth that would limit — or even eliminate — additions to the deficit. But the CBO projected Monday that the bill would boost economic growth 0.7 percent over a decade — not enough to keep it from adding to the deficit.

                      WHY DO CONSERVATARDS SUPPORT TRUMP’S NEW DEAL …THE BIGGEST CLUSTERFUCK SINCE FDR???

  2. Let’s not forget all of the new regulations Trump and his enablers would impose on the nation in the form of immigration control.

    1. Because protecting borders is totally the same thing as telling people what the mileage on their car has to be and making corporations completely responsible for their franchisees.

      Let’s not forget you are a mendacious moron Jeff. Not that you don’t remind us of that fact every single day. But, it is always worth remembering.

      1. Because protecting borders is totally the same thing as telling people what the mileage on their car has to be and making corporations completely responsible for their franchisees.

        WOW, not the same … REGULATIONS (gasp). BUT A FAR WORSE ECONOMY …. per FOX NEWS!!!

        Let’s not forget you are a mendacious moron Jeff. Not that you don’t remind us of that fact every single day. But, it is always worth remembering.

        You be always a trashmouth when losing. You be a PROVEN liar on Reagan.

      2. People have been complaining about immigrants forever. Chinese, German, Italian, Irish, etc… Yet the country didn’t suffer. They built things, they created businesses, they worked hard, they grew the pie, they made the country better and richer.

        This is just the next immigration scare. History will show that it was no different than the rest.

        1. You cant import immigrants faster than the infrastructure or job creation can occur. You cant also do it when more than half of immigrant households end up on some form of government benefits.

          1 million a year is our current immigration floor. Please explain why more is better.

          1. WRONG. YOU MUST PROVE THAT MORE IS BAD

            1. No, we just need to lock you up and put you in hospice.

          2. The truth is we’d be fine with ZERO immigration. In fact there would be a lot of benefits for American society. There would also be losses. The fact is I think there’s a range that’s not TOO bad… Probably somewhere between 0 and maybe around what we have now. But if it went up much, it could get dicey.

            ALSO WHAT KIND matters. 500K purely merit based would probably be FAR better for the country than the 1 million or so we have now where most are retard family members of people who got in on merit. We might be able to take 2 million if they were all merit based.

            But 2 million illiterate peasant refugees… That would be a total mess. I just can’t understand how you open borders morons can’t understand how an illiterate peasant from a dysfunctional society is NOT the same as a doctor from a compatible society.

        2. All these people became productive members of American society, but they arguably made America much worse by their voting patterns – destroying liberty in their quest to impose their collectivist values on a more individualistic society.

          1. See the authoritarian HATRED of equal rights
            Self-delusion that HIS collectivism, is individualistic!!

            Left – Right = Zero
            Increasingly, two sides of the same authoritarian coin.
            (gag)

          2. Truth! Immigrants voted in FDR.

      3. Would you admit, John, that, for example, regulations on businesses demanding that they prove their employees have the correct papers, are in fact regulations? And that Trump wants to make regulations like these, enforcing border security, more strict, instead of less strict?

        No one said all regulations are exactly the same. But it wouldn’t kill you to admit that Trump is actually pro-regulation in a few areas.

        1. No really said he wasn’t. He’s eliminated a few and has chosen to enforce some on the books and maybe add a couple. Net effect is that there are less.

          Now, you may disagree on which he drops and enforces with the next person but the overall count (at this point) is less.

          1. (yawn) How does that justify TOTAL failures on BOTH the Economy and Debt …. even from Fox News?

        2. Your country does this stuff too Pedo Jeffy. And no one cares what you think about our country. Worry about your own.

    2. Right on. Trump should be complemented for those.

      1. How does that offset Trump’s MASSIVE failure on the economy?
        Worse than even OBAMA???? Even worse on the debt — which he promised to completely pay off — in eight years — but is the worst President EVER, there too.

        But he bellows and his base is kinda uneducated.

        1. Who quotes Fox News?

          1. Who quotes Fox News?

            Loyal Trumpards did … until Fox abandoned his sinking ship.
            Anything else?

        2. What is the “MASSIVE” failure on the economy? Give me actual evidence, not sound bites.

          1. But he bellows and his base is kinda uneducated.

            What is the “MASSIVE” failure on the economy? Give me actual evidence, not sound bites.

            Even I can do that!

  3. The most important deregulation that needs to occur is completely eliminating the bloated federal bureaucracy in charge of “border enforcement.” But Orange Hitler has done the opposite — he’s built literal concentration camps preventing all those highly skilled doctors and engineers from crossing the US / Mexico border. Without the totally unrestricted flow of labor, no amount of red tape cutting really matters.

    #OpenBorders
    #AbolishConcentrationCamps

    1. That’s right! End the bureaucracy! We should just enable any citizen to shoot anybody crossing the border that’s not at an official entry location! People could sell tickets, it would be very libertarian!

    Trump started with the LONGEST recovery EVER for an incoming President … from OBAMA! And STILL fails to match even Obama.

    This ASSHOLE is going to give us TOTAL Dem control, with the MOST far-left agenda (since Republicans fucked up by rejecting the original bipartisan Obamacare … which would have killed single-payer forever!) GOP FAILURES NEVER END.

    So now …. hahaha … Trump says FOX is “fake news” … when Fox NEWS has ALWAYS ridiculed his psycho lies.

            If that wasn’t bad enough, a staggering 59 percent of voters think Trump is tearing the country apart.Fox News leaves Trumpsters all alone, twisting in the wind …

            Obama inherited the 2nd worst economy since the 1930s
            Trump started with the longest recovery EVER for an incoming President … FROM OBAMA … and is WORSE than Obama on the economy and the worst EVER on debt, which he campaigned on PAYING OFF! The biggest clusterfuck since FDR.

                ***Breaking News … White House FORCED to admit a recession is likely … adding ANOTHER failure to … the worst deficts EVER … slower economy than OBAMA (slowest since BUSH!) … but says a recession would be “short and mild” … when EVERY prior promise has FAILED … and we sink deeper into debt … Which Trump campaigned on PAYING OFF ENTIRELY in 8 years!!!

                Deficit to top $1 trillion per year by 2020, CBO says

                America’s deficit is rising sharply and will surpass $1 trillion per year by 2020, a gap that has grown since Congress cut taxes and increased spending, the Congressional Budget Office reported Monday.

                “The federal budget deficit grows substantially over the next several years,… Federal debt is projected to be on a steadily rising trajectory throughout the decade.”

                During debate on the bill, Republican leaders predicted that their proposal would spark massive economic growth that would limit — or even eliminate — additions to the deficit. But the CBO projected Monday that the bill would boost economic growth 0.7 percent over a decade — not enough to keep it from adding to the deficit.

                WHY DO CONSERVATARDS SUPPORT TRUMP’S NEW NEW DEAL …DENYING THE BIGGEST CLUSTERFUCK SINCE FDR???

    2. “Obama inherited the 2nd worst economy since the 1930s.
      Trump started with the LONGEST recovery EVER for an incoming President … from OBAMA! And STILL fails to match even Obama.”

      Is this cherry-picking supposed to impress anyone smarter than a first-grader?
      Or is Hihn actually stupid enough to buy that steaming pile of shit?
      Hint, you fucking idiot; when you start at near zero, it’s hard not to show real growth, even if, like Obo, you do about all you can to prevent it.
      And then, after Obo manages to avoid screwing the pooch entirely, and the market does recover, it’s not easy to show the same growth as when you start at zero.
      Why don’t you tell us how the job growth has stalled, now that we’re at near full employment, you pathetic piece of shit?

      1. (boldface in self-defense from unprovoked aggression … AND COWARDLY DIVERSION aka trumptard bullshit…

        Now bend over ,,, while I JAM YOUR ASS

        JOB GROWTH IS STALLED BECAUSE PEOPLE STILL ADANDON THE LABOR FORCE,

        LABOR FORCE PARTICIPATION ..,. THE SAME THING TRUMP RIDICULED BY OBAMA … AND HAS FAILED TO IMPROVE!

        AGAIN: PROOF vs WHINING AND SNARLING

        P.S. How would that be cherry-picking even if you had not FUCKED UP?

        PPS. Why IGNORE Fox News FACTS, cherry-picker?

        1. “PSYCHO TIME!”

        2. LMAO!!!
          Obama start to finish (66% start 62.7% end ) = 3.3% Participation drop
          Trump start to now ( 62.7% start 63% end ) = 0.3% Participation increase

          It floors me the lefts ability to manipulate figures, hide details that certainly matter and pretend a hole is a mountain and claim it as — “fact”.

          Heck, the highest its been in the last century is 67.3% under GWB!

          1. HEY YIOU STUOPID DUMBFUCK
            1) You LIE about Trump’s
            2) You IGNORE that Obama INHERITED the 2nd worst economy since the 1930s.
            3) You’re IGNORANT that Trump inherited the longest recovery EVER for an incoming President …. FROM OBAMA ,… and is the WORST President EVER on debt, and worst in a quarter-century on economic growth

            ****BREAKING NEWS — TRUMP’S DEFICTS WILL REACH ONE TRILLION DOLLARS TWO YEARS EARLIER THAN PREDICTED … AS THE ECONOMY COLLAPSES.

            AND EVEN FOX NEWS RIDICULES YOU LAUGHING HYENAS

            FOX NEWS: Trump in big trouble for 2020. Political and economic warning signs there for all to see

            The strong economy Trump touts is anything but and the signs are obvious.

            First, Trump cut taxes and said it would pay for itself. Instead, it has exploded the deficit. President Barack Obama inherited a trillion-dollar budget deficit in 2009, but it was down to $600 billion by the time he left office. In just two years, thanks to tax cuts, Trump has taken the deficit back to a trillion dollars. And on “Fox News Sunday,” White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow admitted that the administration is looking at more tax cuts.

            Next, Trump said China would bear the costs of his trade war with them. Really? Trump’s suspension of additional tariffs is an admission that they have been hurting American consumers despite his claims to the contrary. In the Fox News Poll, 46 percent said tariffs were hurting the economy. Americans know the cost of everything has increased while their paychecks haven’t increased.

            ******** The fact is Trump’s best economic growth is 3.5 percent in two quarters out of the 10 quarters he’s been in office, CNBC’s John Harwood reports, adding that same growth figure, 3.5 percent, is Obama’s seventh best quarter, George W. Bush’s eighth best, and Bill Clinton’s 17th best. Yet, Trump claims his economy is the best ever. Far from it.

            If that wasn’t bad enough, a staggering 59 percent of voters think Trump is tearing the country apart.

            Fox News leaves Trumpsters all alone, twisting in the wind …

            Trump is the worst EVER on debt, which he campaigned on PAYING OFF!

            Trump’s New Deal is the biggest clusterfuck since FDR!!

            Left – Right = Zero

            Anything else, chumps?

            1. LOL…
              1) You LIE about Obama
              2) You IGNORE that Trump INHERITED the 2nd worst economy since the 1930s due to DEMOCRATS.
              3) You’re IGNORANT that Obama CREATED the worst economy EVER!! and CREATED the worst economic growth in a quarter-century!!!

              So bad – the entire economy was subsidized and dumped $10T onto the national debt…………. The housing market collapsed, unemployment was so high they subsidize unemployment. We came inches from becoming Venezuela.

              Need I go on? Obama added almost $1T just on the AARA bill alone while his predecessor (GWB) saved the auto industry and actually pulled a profit. What did Obama save in his $10T socialist nightmare? Nothing… Nothing at all but did manage to screw everyone out of affordable healthcare.

              1. THEY’RE GOING TOTALLY INSANE!

                You IGNORE that Trump INHERITED the 2nd worst economy since the 1930s due to DEMOCRATS.

                WORSE THAN THE GERAT RECESSION!

                3) You’re IGNORANT that Obama CREATED the worst economy EVER!! and CREATED the worst economic growth in a quarter-century!!!

                THERE WAS NO CRASH IN 2008? NO TARP BAILOUTS BY BUSH?

                      2) LIED about who created TARP – claims Obama for the spending. — but credits BUSH FOR IT-

                      3)Trump’s debt is ALREADY worse — per FOX and CBO ==- worse deant in two years than obama on eight years. YOU’RE AS PATHETIC AS TRUMP …. and MINE links to PROOF … PUNK.

        America’s deficit is rising sharply and will surpass $1 trillion per year by 2020, a gap that has grown since Congress cut taxes and increased spending, the Congressional Budget Office reported Monday.

        The federal deficit — the gap between how much the government takes in and how much it spends — will hit $804 billion in fiscal 2018, up 21 percent from 2017, the CBO said.

        “The federal budget deficit grows substantially over the next several years,” CBO Budget Director Keith Hall said Wednesday after his agency released the report. “Federal debt is projected to be on a steadily rising trajectory throughout the decade.”

  5. “President Trump has cut a lot of regulations—but increased some others.”

    You would think he would be deregulating more and not increasing regulating.
    Oh, that’s right.
    It’s all about politics.
    My bad.

  6. Stossel is again raising the bar for journalism. Mencken in 1920 described 3 ways for an officeholder to clear the decks and act. The Don picked the 3rd… “to meet the rabble rousers on their own terms, matching their appeals to the emotions with appeals even more powerful, and out-doing their vague and soothing words with words even more vague and soothing.” Then as the other looters shriek at his right hand, his left prioritizes some law he happens to like, and luckily it ain’t asset forfeiture. Only Stossel tells it like it is.

              1. Its funny you showed up right at election time.

                I’d almost place a bet you work for the DNC campaign committee and the fact that you use contrary manipulation, blind cheer-leading and individual degradation/shaming tactics is just more evidence of a DNC association – because that’s what Democrats do to get support. Use negative tactics (like a 4th grade bully) to “scare” everyone into following them. You know who else used DNC tactics? Hitler.

                1. Why do snarling Trumpstards confuse libertarians with the DNC … while THEY defend Trump’s NEW New Deal?

                  When has ANY President EVER skyrocketed the debt … IN A RECOVERY??? And why do his clones suffer SEVERE DENIAL OF REALITY, a mental affliction? (sneer)

  7. On Net Neutrality- “Opponents feared that those corporations would jack up prices or slow some website speeds. None of that’s happened, Stossel and Norquist note.”

    This statement is patently false. As soon as Net Neutrality fell Cox Communications imposed data caps on wired Internet service and then added a 45/mo option to get unlimited service, that is a rate increase period. Data caps especially on wired services are nothing but price gouging. Networks are engineered for peak utilization.

  8. No regulation pops up by itself. In most cases regulation are brought up by problems that develop and in many cases are the result of lawsuits. Likewise enforcement of regulation, particularly the oddball regulations, is the result of complaints. We feel sorry for the Barrons who wanted to develop their property, but it might have been neighbors or other local group who enjoyed the wetland area and the wildlife it brought. Likewise if local farmer have manure runoff in a heavy rain and it poisons a local waterway or waterbody you may not be happy. Particularly if you are a fisherman or your business caters to those fishermen. So like it or not we do need regulations.

      “No regulation pops up by itself. In most cases regulation are brought up by problems that develop and in many cases are the result of lawsuits….”

      Aren’t you the cute little apologist for bullshit?
      No, they ‘pop up’ as a result of some lobbying.
      Fuck off, slaver.

      1. Check into this. Many environmental regulation are development of settlements or decisions in court cases. New discoveries also drive regulations. The discovery of PFAS, flame retardants now being found in ground water will likely drive new regulation. Now you are correct that many regulation are the results of lobbying. But these are mainly from businesses. For example, in Wisconsin car dealers did not want Tesla selling cars directly to people. And you should note that these type of regulations were not mentioned in John Stossel’s report. Wonder why?

        1. The truth is whatever modest environmental regulations MIGHT be somewhat reasonable, we got most of that shit into law by the 70s! We needed maybe like a half dozen minor tweaks since then… Not THOUSANDS of bullshit regulations like we actually got.

          1. The Clean Air Act (CAA) was signed into law in 1970 (Nixon) and later amended in 1990 (GHW Bush). But these were laws that set the goals and methods for cleaner air. The regulation were developed to enforce the laws. Those regulations were often the result of lawsuits requiring adherence to the CAA. Why so many regulations, because we live in complex world that is changing. You can not use the same regulation for emissions from a furniture manufacturer’s paint spray booth as for a huge power plants stacks. Early regulations diluted the pollutants but that led to acid rain which required more regulations. So if you want to live with 1970 regulations, you need to live in a 1970s world.

            1. Did I say we needed to freeze it at 1970 EXACTLY? No. But by the end of the 70s, and ESPECIALLY the end of the 80s, we basically had every thing we could ever need on the books.

              The air, water, and land were all FINE in the 90s or 2000s… Yet the eco-Nazis stacked on thousands of new rules to justify their own existence. It is the nature of government, or any bureaucracy to do this. Once you reach a point that works, you can STOP adding more on. We hit that decades ago. Straw bans, regulating temporary water runoff, etc are all overzealous bullshit.

              1. And the best part to all that – was the 70s were just fine. Only but a couple of cities ever experienced acid rain – yet every wilderness in the U.S. (because the Federal Gov implemented) had to run around with gas guzzling garbage on their motor vehicles.

                Any notable (real – not eco-Nazis cherry-picked and dramatized) pollution could have been addressed by the city/county/state. Only when state-to-state battles evolve is the federal system even needed on the subject.

                1. Acid rain had nothing to do with it
                  Only a Trumptard would say there would not have been more.
                  Who brainwashed yu … Alex Jones? NOBODY on earth is CRAZIER!

                  1. EVERYBODY on earth knows who is CRAZIER! That’s you and your emotionally unstable ilk of like-minded whack-jobs. Seriously; does your kind get together and have who can say the craziest thing competitions?

                    I want to play — Did you know that ants who fart without a Cadillatyc converter that sucks up 10-gallons of gas and runs non-stop will cause chicken little’s head to pop off?

                    The sky is falling!!!! The sky is falling!!!! If you don’t believe me; your CRAZY!!!

  9. Still waiting for Trump to take an axe to the FDA and the CDC when it comes to tobacco and e-cigs …. any fucking day now

    1. He’s too busy destroying the economy
      The worst debt EVER
      LESS growth than OBAMA.
      And .. today … admits a recession is likely, the same recession he said was a conspiracy against him yesterday.
      He’s now in total freefall.
      Even Fox has thrown him to the sharks

      Trump’s NEW New Deal, biggest clusterfuck since FDR

  10. An exuberant and redundantly ebullient Mulvaney said on air last week that the Badministration has removed 16 for every 1 new reg instituted under Trump. Life expectancy in the U.S. has declined every year for the past 3 years. Wonder if that has any correlation to such de-regs to, say, the Clean Water Act wherein Trump now allows coal ash to be dumped (once again) into potable rivers. How’s that doing for your quality of life downstream, West Virginians? Kentuckians? Thirsty yet? And who cares, by the way? Certainly not Trump. Just the owners of those ‘clean’ coal plants, dontchaknow. Can’t blame the coastal ‘elites’ for that one (among many similar others). So drink heartily. And breathe deeply now that the Clean Air Act is being decimated. Both ‘habits’ will shorten your life appreciably, and hopefully quicker than you can apply for some pubic health benefits. Oh, wait ~ those are gone, too…. damn things were cutting into myopic MAGA profits. C’est la vie (or lack thereof), a la Trump. I wonder in what light his grandchildren will view him, assuming they were born smarter than him, with just average IQs & the ability to critically think? HUUUGE assumption, I know ….
