Top House Republican wants ban on new federal regulations - CNN.com
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!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.
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?
