It’s not everyday that one person makes a decision that affects 300+ million people with the stroke of a pen!
The executive orders came fast and furious last week; this included one that targeted the catastrophe that is Obamacare, along with the order that cleared the way for the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Yes indeed, President Donald Trump hit the ground running and that massive regulations cutting order is just plain FANTASTIC.
Of course, Trump is still being roasted in the Liberal media at the moment for many reasons (pick a subject, we’ll devise a scandal and simultaneously organize a “spontaneous” protest!)
Then, Whoopi Goldberg was awarded the prestigious “Pants On Fire” Award for her off-the-cuff claim that “at least Obama waited a few months before signing an Executive Order”.
In fact, Obama issued his first Executive Order on Day 2 of his first term in office and continued to do so until his second term in office ended…and the orders just kept FLYING from there.
And none of them had the sweeping positive effect Trump had in his first week. Check this out from Fox News:
“In one of his first acts as president, Donald Trump effectively halted nearly $200 billion worth of regulations, according to a new analysis.
President Trump has taken aggressive action to curb regulations in his first week, promising to cut 75 percent or ‘maybe more,’ and signing an executive order Monday to cut two regulations from the books when every new rule is introduced.
The first move came in the form of a memo to all federal agencies from Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, freezing all recently finalized and pending regulations. The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, found the action resulted in stopping rules that would cost the economy $181 billion.”
You might ask yourself, “Well, how can a Leftist possibly misconstrue this as bad news?”
The short answer is, “They’re Leftists. They can make any news bad news.”
“According to American Action Forum (AAF) research, this memo put a hold on $181 billion in total regulatory costs, including $17 billion in annual costs, and 5.5 million hours of paperwork. This moratorium freezes 22 rulemakings with annual costs above $100 million and 16 measures with more than $1 billion in long-term costs.”
With all this “trimming of the fat”, it would be surprising if we as taxpayers do not see a marked improvement in our own paychecks.
Trump is not taking a paycheck himself and he has persuaded uncounted corporations to remain on our shores, countless others from outside the US to promise work to Americans within our borders, has cut regulatory costs, manufacturing costs (F-35s, Air Force One) and is about to begin work on the SBW (Southern Border Wall), national infrastructure improvements and upgrades, begin the path toward energy independence with pipelines, fracking, drilling, and refining, upgrading our defense capabilities (both militarily and technologically) and improving the inner cities and education.
Oh, and did I mention the repeal of Obamacare?
Let’s see, Whoopi…how much money did Obama save during his presidency?
Damn. NINE TRILLION in the red!
Looks like America’s gonna have to climb out of the hole that Obama dug for us with those shovel-ready jobs before we can begin actually saving some money.
