Well, it appears Obama is breaking records when it comes to slinging rules at you and me:
President Obama has implemented more costly rules and swamped America with more federal red tape than any other administration, and now he has set another regulatory record: his team has filled 70,000 pages in the Federal Register faster than any other president.
Team Obama crossed the 70,000-page mark this week and is on schedule to print seven of the fattest eight Federal Registers in history, according to a new analysis from the Competitive Enterprise Institute's Vice President of Policy Clyde Wayne Crews.
CEI has projected that the 2016 total in the Federal Register will be a record-setting 89,416 pages.
The Federal Register record comes after Obama hit several other records, according to American Action Forum.
"The Obama administration has set several notable records in the regulatory world: 600 major regulations and counting, more than 10 billion hours of federal paperwork, and the costliest single year in regulation in recent history. It's time for another record: 101 unfunded regulatory mandates imposed on states, local governments, and businesses," said a new AAF report.
In fact AAF regulatory policy director Sam Batkins put a price for the regulatory red tape at $2,496 per person per year.
And we should prepare for more of this, as it now appears there will be no Deus ex Trump to save the day.
