RUSH: Donald Trump is doing good things that nobody knows about. They don’t get reported on. One of the things that Trump’s keeping a promise on is reducing regulations. Washington Examiner. Have you noticed that the economy and the stock market have markedly improved since Trump’s election? Now, there are reasons for this. If the markets were monitored and worried about what’s going on with who’s testifying to what, then the markets would be in a tailspin, but the markets are not looking at things like that.
“President Trump is winning on one key campaign promise, cutting regulations and virtually eliminating the release of new ones.” He signed executive orders that have brought the issuance of new regulations down in great number.
“In fact, he has cut the output of costly regulations so deeply that a group that charts the federal government’s output of rules has called the shift ‘historic.’ American Action Forum told Secrets that Trump has cut the output of regulations to just 8 percent of the averages under former President Obama and other recent administrations. What’s more, the cost of the new regulations has dropped from an average of $26 billion to $33 million.”
This is an area that Trump has followed through on. He made a big deal during the campaign of regulations. They are hideous things. They come from hidden bureaus within bureaucracies that are issued by nameless, faceless people that have the force of law, but they have not come through the legal process. They’ve not started out in Congress. They’re not appropriations. They are not statutes.
They are just regulations that are issued and people abide ’cause it comes from the federal government. And Trump has apparently had overwhelming success at rooting out a substantial percentage of all of these. And I wanted to make sure I mentioned it because this is the kind of thing that nobody is reporting or talking about.
