Libertarians cautiously hopeful Trump will reduce regulatory burden
Libertarina Party Press Releases ^ | February 1, 2017 | Carla Howell

Today Libertarians praised President Donald Trump’s goal of reducing federal government regulations by 75 percent and expressed hope that his plan to counter any new regulation with the elimination of two existing regulations serves to reduce the massive regulatory burden that Americans suffer under today.

Libertarians caution that some regulations impose 100 times the burden that others do. So a two-for-one deal won’t necessarily result in a net reduction in red tape, bureaucratic obstruction, or needless government meddling in people’s lives.

True. Damn shame what they’ve done to the party (open borders hissy that finally drove me out).

Course, neither the (R) or the (L) have attempted much to form some sort of coalition so work toward those goals that they both agree upon (IMO, more to do w/ the Uniparty than the (R) having any ‘base’ beliefs to begin).

They need to stop inhaling and read what is on Free Republic.

Check this headline on FR: Trump Halted $181 Billion in Regulatory Costs on First Day in Office
