Quote of the Day

"Obama will demand more spending but he will call it "investments." He remains committed to raising taxes on our most successful job creators. Then there is the idea that Obama is now a great advocate of less government regulation. They have to be kidding!

The Wall Street Journal did a little digging and discovered a loophole the size of an ocean liner in Obama's recent order to the bureaucracy to deregulate. The order directs the bureaucrats to consider whether a regulation hurts job growth. But is also directs them to balance that consideration against "values that are difficult or impossible to quantify including equity, human dignity, fairness and distributive impacts."

The Environmental Protection Agency, increasingly known as the "Employment Prevention Agency," has already issued a statement that Obama's new deregulation rule would not require it to alter a single current or pending rule. Since the EPA is daily using regulation to destroy jobs in the oil and coal industries among others, it should be clear that Obama's reform is no reform at all. It is just a smoke screen designed to hide his radical agenda from voters."
