When Barack Obama left office, he never imagined his legacy would be at risk.
Obama worked hard to make sure Donald Trump could not undo his anti-American socialist agenda.
But Obama was left stunned and reeling after he found out about this massive defeat.
One area Donald Trump has taken a pick axe to is Obama’s job-killing regulatory schemes at the Environmental Protection Agency.
During his two terms in office, Obama put in place a complex regulatory framework to strangle the American economy in the name of combating “climate change.”
Trump dismissed this nonsense as a hoax and set about undoing as much of Obama’s anti-capitalist framework as possible.
The latest Trump administration initiative is mandating EPA officials take into account the costs and benefits of new environmental rules.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Trump administration will overhaul how it analyzes the costs and benefits of environmental regulations, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) memo.
“With these improvements, the EPA is taking another step to provide the public with a more open federal government and more effective environmental and public health protection,” EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler wrote to agency officials in a memo released Tuesday.
In the memo, Wheeler asked EPA assistant administrators to ensure they take costs and benefits into consideration when issuing rules, consistently interpret federal laws, provide more transparency in regulatory decisions and use “best practices” when conducting technical analysis for new rules.
Wheeler pointed out public comments claiming the “agency underestimated costs, overestimated benefits or evaluated benefits and costs inconsistently,” and he said officials will aim for “greater clarity, transparency and consistency” in future rulemakings.
Obama’s EPA manipulated cost-benefit analyses to always come down on the side of anti-business regulations.
The Trump economy is booming because the President rolled back Obama’s job-killing regulations.
This announcement ensures Trump aims to keep the economy humming along at its current pace.
