    Congress Passed 800 Pages of Legislation. Agencies Proposed, Adopted 80,000 Pages of Regulations.


    This doesn't surprise me. I daily read excerpts from the Federal Register and I'm surprised the number of regulations is that low!


    We elect representatives to discuss and enact our laws. Instead, we have faceless bureaucrats who are answerable to no one who create and issue regulations that affect us deeply – and often are the cause of our current economic situation.

    We wouldn't need as many laws, if Persons could simply bear true witness to our supreme laws of the land.

    This is exactly why it makes no difference who/whom you elect as President unless they a willing to dismantle the agencies that actually create these regulations.

    there should be no perception of any bonus simply for more laws.

    Examiner Editorial The soft despotism of regulation imposes high costs on Americans WashingtonExaminer.com

    Crews’ new edition will appear later this month, but some of the new data is available now. Federal departments and agencies, for example, issued 3,659 “final” rules in 2013 and an additional 2,594 “proposed” rules. As a result, there were 26,417 pages of new regulations published in the Federal Register in 2013, a new record. The total of all pages published by the Federal Register in 2013 came to 79,311, the fourth highest ever recorded.

    Four of the top five years have come during President Obama's tenure in the Oval Office, with the fifth being the final one under President George W. Bush. Five departments -- Treasury, Commerce,Interior, Health and Human Services, Transportation -- plus the Environmental Protection Agencyaccounted for 49.3 percent of all the new regulations issued in 2013.

    Compliance with all of those rules and regulations comes at an immense cost, estimated by Crews at $1.9 trillion annually. That comes to more than $14,000 for every American household in higher prices for everything from eggs and entertainment to medicine and mousetraps. Compliance costs also fall disproportionately on job-creating small businesses, according to Crews. Businesses with fewer than 20 employees pay an average of $10,585 per employee, compared to $7,755 for companies with 500 or more employees.

    Standards is what our federal Congress should be ensuring among the several and sovereign and free States.

    Reading the Federal Register every day has shown me the attempts to pass over Congress to enact rules and regulations designed, not to improve safety, but to impose strangulating rules on everything from free speech to free enterprise.
