Skip to comments.Chamber’s Donohue: ‘Regulatory Tsunami’ Coming
Posted on 11/17/2010 1:25:42 PM PST by Slyscribe
Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue indicated on Wednesday that the business group was looking past Congress and focusing more on federal regulators now that the elections over. Donohue, during an address to members this morning, cited the threat of a regulatory tsunami as the biggest single threat to job creation.
He claimed that the EPA is advancing 29 proposed major rules and the Labor Department was pushing at least 100 regulations and policy changes. The new financial regulatory overhaul has 320 required rule makings, and ObamaCare creates 183 agencies, commissions and panels.

yep - you ain’t seen nothing yet
Can these be killed by defunding them at the house level?
Yes and you can bet on an investigative/oversight tsunami by the GOP to counter this.
This is the difference between fascism and socialism.
Dear honest liberal, if you do exist. Do you really think your thought leaders are unaware this government oppression is destroying our country?
I’d like to hear from the “necessary and proper” crowd.
Tip of the iceberg...
The food Nazi’s essentially voted today to take over the FOOD INDUSTRY TOO!

"...the authority to enact laws necessary and proper for the regulation of interstate commerce is not limited to laws governing intrastate activities that substantially affect interstate commerce. Where necessary to make a regulation of interstate commerce effective, Congress may regulate even those intrastate activities that do not themselves substantially affect interstate commerce.
Justice Scalia, concurring in Raich
Notice when reading anything about S510, it always mentions how the regulations haven't been changed since the 30’s and doesn't take into consideration all the imported foods and blah blah blah...it's all for our safety etc. All while they are planning to put the screws deeper into our lives.
Lock and Load
I will rephrase.
I would like to hear “necessary and proper” discussed where laws are supposed to originate, Congress.
As for the “Necessary,” from Congressman James Madison:
“Necessary cannot be legitimately contrived into boundless power to Congress. As used and debated it must necessary to the end, that is, the defined powers. . . . condemn the exercise of any power, particularly a great and important power, which is not evidently and necessarily involved in an express power.”
Is airline security executed by a federal agency necessary? I don't think so. We have the TSA primarily to relieve the airlines from expense and liability, not to provide security.
Are scanners and genital searches proper? Phht.
If I were king I'd spend my first day in office thinking of an appropriate punishment for Dick Durbin.
I'll believe it when I see it. They still haven't undone the damage caused by FDR & Johnson yet.
Been locked and loaded (not me, the firearm) for 2 years. Waiting for the trend to change to unlock and unload.
Judd Gregg, George LeMieux, and George Voinovich won’t be back. I just hope that this monstrosity can be stopped. The TEA Party needs to be notified.
Hitler is back from the dead?
As bad as I thought it was going to be, it’s even worse.
I’ve saved this list as RINOS.txt ... I won’t forget going forward!
I can’t wait to see how BamBamKennedy uses his new controls as ‘jobs’ creation claims. We have hired for ourselves to rule over us a reenactment of pharaoh of days of old.
Correct. That's why Wickard and its progeny are so pernicious. They have expanded the scope of what is deemed Proper for Congress to regulate.
Scalia not only endorsed Wickard as Proper, he expanded its reach to include intrastate activities that do not themselves substantially affect interstate commerce, if they are Necessary to make the regulation effective.
It is why we must send virtuous people grounded in the Constitution to Congress and the Presidency. To rely solely on one branch to protect our liberties, the Supreme Court, is silly.
It’s time to end the EPA.
LeMieux from FL is out - being replaced by Marco Rubio!
At what point do we say enough? If the incoming group doesn’t initiate mas repeals of all this crap what is next?
