When the Obama White House begins adopting the same talking points as the dirty energy industry, something has gone horribly wrong with our government. But that is exactly what is happening today, with the White House apparently buying into the repeatedly debunked industry talking point that claims that government regulations are killing jobs.
The White House has created a new page on their website – whitehouse.gov/advise – where they are asking businesses to tell the government which regulations are burdening their business so that the government can decide whether or not to kill that regulation.
This is sooooo wrong on soooooo many levels. The foxes are not only allowed to guard to hen house, they are being encouraged to teach the hens how to make omelettes.
The White House asks " How can we continue to streamline, simplify, and improve rules and regulations? Which rules should be eliminated, streamlined, or made more effective? How can we reduce reporting and paperwork burdens? What are the best ways to cut regulatory costs? We’re looking for your ideas."
"We’re looking for business owners across the country to tell us which regulations are standing in your way."
What you can do now, today! GO TO THE "ADVISE THE ADVISOR" page and tell them what you think about corporations being allowed to devise their own rules.
THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, IT WILL IMPACT EVERYTHING FROM HEALTHCARE, TO WALL STREET AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.
