For the left, the hardest part about Donald Trump’s win is this:
They fear the last eight years of progressive-slash-socialist “gains” – because they’re gains, in the eyes of the far left, not regressions or constitutional damages – will crumble overnight.
And thankfully, they’re right. An overnight dismantling of some of President Obama’s most burdensome, most restrictive, most regulatory and most costly provisions and orders is what Trump has in mind.
Too bad; to the victor go the spoils.
But nobody knew just how deep Trump intended to slice into the Obama legacy until now.
As the news blog Yes I’m Right reported:
“In a stunning turn of events, it seems that once 2017 hits and Barack Obama is officially out of office, Republicans, aided by Donald Trump’s cabinet, are set to use a rare policy to undo every single piece of disastrous legislation that the Obama administration has done in the past year.”
That’s right – every single one.
What’s the rare policy?
“Republicans,” the news blog went on, “are about to use a contract that Newt Gingrich helped author 20 years ago. It’s called the Congressional Review Act and it essentially calls into question all of Obama and his administration’s regulations in America in 2016.”
The gist of the policy is that those regulations that don’t meet the standard can be repealed. Immediately.
“We plan to robustly use the Congressional Review Act to reverse the midnight regulations of Barack Obama,” said Rep. John Barrasso, Yes I’m Right reported. “His legacy is lost. The American people said, ‘No, we don’t want that. We want to change direction.”
What a ray of sunshine that seems to be dawning. The countdown to Obama’s last day has certainly begun and Americans should be thanking their lucky stars that we’re getting someone who can UNDO Obama’s insanity.
