    oh well, it's what you dupes voted for, ENJOY

    By MATTHEW DALY
    Associated Press
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- While the "fiscal cliff" of looming tax increases and spending cuts dominates political conversation in Washington, some Republicans and business groups see signs of a "regulatory cliff" that they say could be just as damaging to the economy.

    For months, federal agencies and the White House have sidetracked dozens of major regulations that cover everything from power plant pollution to workplace safety to a crackdown on Wall Street.

    The rules had been largely put on hold during the presidential campaign as the White House sought to quiet Republican charges that President Barack Obama was an overzealous regulator who is killing U.S. jobs.

    But since the election, the Obama administration has quietly reopened the regulations pipeline.

    In recent weeks, the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed rules to update water quality guidelines for beaches and deal with runoff from logging roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, meanwhile, has proposed long-delayed regulations requiring auto makers to include event data recorders - better known as "black boxes" - in all new cars and light trucks beginning in 2014.

    The administration also has initiated several rules to implement its health care overhaul, including a new fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions.

    ALL of it here

    Out here in Utah a lot of chop shops sell chips for diesel engines to get better fuel mileage, and epa officials a couple a weeks ago starting showing up at these business's shutting em down.
    apparently the epa is so smart they figure a truck getting 15 miles to the gallon puts out less pollution than 1 getting 22. Figure that one out

    When was the last time you heard that your drinking water wasnt clean due to logging?
    Exactly when did Obama say that there would be an additional charge for pre existing conditions?
    Are you prepared to pay an extra 1 thousand dollars on a car to cover the cost of the event recorder? On the heels of the great recession? Why is it necessary? Have we been having an issue with not figuring out why a car went off the road?

    Your rant is pure rhetoric...and you put absolutely no thought into it.

    .

    We can always count on government bureaucrats -- especially those in the Democrat party -- to not understand the difference between "more" regulation and "better" regulation.

    As sure as the sun comes up in the morning.
