    Regulation Business, Jobs Booming Under Obama

    f the federal government's regulatory operation were a business, it would be one of the 50 biggest in the country in terms of revenues, and the third largest in terms of employees, with more people working for it than McDonald's, Ford, Disney and Boeing combined.
    Under President Obama, while the economy is struggling to grow and create jobs, the federal regulatory business is booming.

    I don't know, it wasn't part of the story, how about you find said graph and post it for comparison?

    Are we looking to see if we can blame Bush some more?

    We don't really have to look very hard, do we? The financial crisis was brought on by a failure to adequately regulate the financial and real estate markets, and a failure to enforce existing regulations -- in part due to insufficient regulatory staff. Only in bizarro world would you conclude that the measures taken after the fact to address the causes of the worst recession in three generations are responsible for the fallout from that recession.

    Someone forgets which party said "Hey we need to do something about this" and the party that said "No problem here"...

    F&F, or even F were nto the only or even largest problem. Nor are regulations.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Actually the House, in a bipartisan effort aided by Barney Frank, actually passed a bill to reform Freddie and Fannie, but it was killed by Republicans in the Senate at the insistance of the White House.
