    1] Have the Senate introduce the Repeal Obamacare bill. I believe the house has already passed their version. Be prepared to introduce new health care plans to replace O-care.

    2] Get the Keystone pipeline project moving. Identify and scrap abusive/excessive regulations against the energy sector. Get those permits that have been stalled approved as quickly as possible.

    3] Identify and scrap restrictive/abusive/overreaching rules and regs against the small business community.

    4] Examine and scrap executive orders meant to do run-arounds on Congress.

    5] Begin work on tax reform.

    That's a good start for now. How 'bout you?

    A good start would issue an executive order repealing all executive orders issued since 1/20/09.
    I'd be pleased as hell if he issued a second order making all EPA regulations subject to approval of Congress.

    Repeal ObamaCare
    Repeal NDAA
    Repeal Patriot Act
    Repeal NAFTA
    Audit the Fed
    Defund/Investigate the C.I.A

    Then start eliminating gov't agencies.

    But I know not one of those will happen.

    All great ideas so far.
    All I would add would be for Romney to fly to the middle east, visit all our allies in that region whom Obama has thus far neglected to visit and NOT visit all the muzzy terror loving shit holes Obama seems so intent on associating with.

    Eliminate the TSA and let airports be responsible for their own security.

    I would say no to number one. I realize this is going to incense people :D but Obamacare should never be repealed, it should be replaced and I don’t think repealing it is going to get that done. Besides that, you are never going to get such a thing passed unless you manage to get a supermajority in the senate and Keep the house. I don’t see a supermajority happening, do you?

    2, 3, and 4 are good.
    5 – IMHO, is by FAR the most important and I would like them to take this on first. I don’t think they actually will take it on at all but it is one of my top desires as far as repairing our defunct government.

    Along with taking on the regulations, I would also like them to tackle useless bureaucracies and eliminate most of them. That is a huge undertaking though and another thing I doubt they are going to do.
    I would like such a law to be extended to ALL regulating agencies. I am tired of congress abdicating their responsibilities to agencies that have little to no checks and balances to their power.
    Ditto, as well as the DHS too, the agencies that existed before that monstrosity were plenty capable if they were not prevented from working together.

    I would add some repealing the patriot act as well. Also would like to see them pull back the military overseas and close most of the overseas bases.

    The better question is do you think they will actually do any of this?

    I think they MIGHT address some of the regulation problem but I don’t think they are going to make too much headway on that. Still, some is a step in the right direction. They will take care of the keystone pipeline though. That is an easy one. The thing is, so will Obama. The delays are mere politicking before the election.

    I won't claim to be an expert on the rules and regs surrounding exec orders but there's plenty of suggestion that some/many of them have been designed not only to go around Congress but may also be unconstitutional.

    If nothing else, it would seem to me that a non-partisan group should at least review these regs for constitutional issues.

    I'm not sure if I would agree to Congressional approval on every EPA decision. You could run up against a very necessary rule being held up or even shot down by the "wrong" Congress.
