Obama Still Hard At Work Smothering Freedom
Just because Obama is campaigning full time all over the nation doesn't mean that your freedoms and prosperity are safe.
Last week, 1,571 new pages of regulations were published in the 2012 Federal Register, bringing the total for this year to more than 55,300 pages, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).
In those pages, 76 new final rules were approved, up from 51 final rules during the shortened Labor Day holiday week.
That figure is equivalent to a new regulation being published every 2 hours and 13 minutes, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
Some of the most notable regulations published include a major regulation from the EPA that sets new performance standards for petroleum refineries less than five years old and another new environmental rule regarding paper mill emissions.
