    Top House Republican wants ban on new federal regulations

    Washington (CNN) -- House GOP Leader John Boehner said he supports a ban on all new federal regulations, after meeting Friday with business lobbyists who complained about uncertain economic conditions.

    "I think having a moratorium on new federal regulations is a great idea. It sends a wonderful signal to the private sector they may have some breathing room," Boehner said.

    He said any ban would include an exemption for "emergency regulations" for some agencies and suggested it could last a year.
    Boehner thinks the federal government should stop regulating for a year, basically. A curious proposal during a time where his party is in the minority. Is there anyone who still claims the GOP is not the "Party of No?" Boehner is proposing that "No" become official federal policy!

    Do you think he would do the same during a time where the GOP controls both houses?

    Would he also give up his salary during this period where his job is no longer necessary?

    Re: Top House Republican wants ban on new federal regulations

    Excerpted from “Boehner calls for less regulation, public calls for more” From NBC's Mark Murray and Luke Russert, “First Read,” NBC News, 12 hours ago
    According to last month's NBC/WSJ poll, 65% said they wanted more regulation for the oil industry (versus 16% who want less); 57% want more regulation for Wall Street firms (compared with 15% who want less); 53% want more regulation for big corporations (versus 21% who want less); and 52% want more regulation for the health-care industry (compared with 27% who want less).
    Thankfully, Americans don't agree with Boehner.

    I remember a story a number of years ago about doctors (NY, I think) who went on strike. The death rate went down. (I tried to find something on the internet about it to post, but it was all lengthy and most claimed the data was not flawed, but could be explained in other ways.

    How about just sending Congress on an extended vacation?? No more spending...no more new laws. I'll bet we wouldn't notice a down trend -- and might even find it refreshing.

    Americans don't agree with Obama on immigration. 57% says AZ law is just right and 17% say it doesn't go far enough.
    Poll: Support for Arizona Immigration Law Hits 57 Percent - Political Hotsheet - CBS News .
    Thankfully, Americans don't agree with the Dems and Obama on immigration.
    Why can't one party disagree with the other, thats politics. I could very easy say the Dems are the party of No because they don't agree with how most Americans would like to see "illegal" immigratiion handled.

    Now back on topic.: I would rather see well though out regulation become law than some rushed, supplement riders laden bill get pushed through. Both parties are so partisan that they both have lost sight of what is good for the US.

    The problem is, when legislators make a bill that is “well thought out,” it means that they’ve put lots of thought into maximizing loopholes and earmarks for themselves and their cronies.

    That would be a pretty awesome to tell you the truth.
    Next they could go through the federal registry and try to reduce redundancies & ridiculous laws by 25%.

    Not a horrible idea after all.

    libs tend to operate on the concept that if society isn't perfect we have to keep making more and more and more laws.

    its the same mentality of taxing our way to prosperity. The same mentality that caused Washington's doctors to bleed him to death.

    libs think if 100000 laws don't cure society's problems another 100000 laws on top of them will rather than realizing most of our problems come from TOO MUCH Government and the normal reactions to it

    Not the worst idea I've heard by far.

    A good many people don't realize how much power Congress has invested in the bureaucracies. Huge, inefficient and insulated from the will (and wrath) of the people, these bureaucracies have been given the power to pass regulations independently that have the force of law, using delegated Congressional power. In essense, laws (with punishments!) are being passed that are NOT being reviewed by elected officials.

    I have problems with this.

    Rather than a temporary moratorium, I'd prefer a law that has Congress review all new regulations individually and vote up/down on them. The bureaucracies need to be kept carefully in check, they are becoming unelected legislative bodies.

    It's an absurd proposal given how lax regulation has had a hand in the financial crisis and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
