White House Vows To Ease Business Regulation, Republicans Skeptical

August 25, 2011 by  

Obama released the new proposal after ordering a top-to-bottom review of the regulations in January.The Administration of President Barack Obama has announced plans to scale back some of the many regulations that exist for American businesses, The Washington Times reported.

Though the President sought a response from the business community and his opponents across the aisle, there was a lack of enthusiasm concerning the announcement due to the Administration’s history with the notion of regulation, according to the newspaper.

“Today the White House announced the outcome of its government wide review, and the results are underwhelming,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said. “Speeches and editorials are not enough to help real job creators in America — small-business owners — create middle-class jobs.”

The current plan that was released by Obama included up to 500 changes that are aimed at saving businesses money. Though there are specific things like consolidation of Internal Revenue Service paperwork, simplifying hazard warnings and expediting payments to government contractors, there is a sense of doubt that remained among his opponents, The Los Angeles Times reported.

    “Republicans Skeptical”; that could be tacked onto just about any statement made where the good of our country is concerned.
    The lack of enthusiasum on the part of the skeptical Republicans is probably due to the shame they feel whenever President Obama makes another move to appease the right.

    • http://comcast the fisherman

      You know it is fun picking stones and throwing them at others. If we know why we are thowing them then we should throw them at congress who are the worst that we ever had. They can not agree with each other. They keep pointing fingers. But they are the idiots we elected. What a team. Now look what is to follow. More clowns.

    • Sonja

      Get real, Obama will lie, say anything, do anything, to try & obtain votes in 2012, he is SATAN. May God take him and his Medusa, american flag burning wife, & toss them both into hell where they belong, THE SOONTER THE BETTER for our country.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Ahh good. No discussion here would do without some baseless hate and rage.

        • jyrine

          You know about hate and rage and baseless is your middle name. Right Doc?

      • Alan

        Sonya and Jyrine seem to prefer name calling to sensible discussion and/or disagreement.
        There are unfortunately a lot of unintelligent people just like them.

        • http://certus-certusblogspot.com RAYMOND HARBIN

          ALAN I KNOW, EXCEEDINGLY WELL, A MAN WHO EARNED FOUR SCIENTIFIC DOCTORATES BEFORE HE WAS 28. A MAN, BY SEVEN MILITARY AND UNIVERSITY TESTS SCORED 165 ON I.Q LEVEL–THAT COMPARES WITH 162 FOR ALBERT EINSTEIN.

          THIS MAN TOTALLY AGREES WITH SONYA’S FIRST SENTENCE–IS SILENT ABOUT ABOUT SONYA’S MORAL JUDGEMENT– BUT IS CERTAIN THAT VIRTUALLY ANY AMERICAN OF EVEN THE TINIEST KNOWLEDGE BANK–WITH AN I. Q. ABOVE 26 KNOWS THAT OBAMA EXCEEDED THE WORLD RECORD IN MASS PRESIDENTIAL LYING DURING HIS FIRST TWO MONTHS IN OFFICE.

          THAT LEAVES ANY **ALIVE** AMERICAN WHO DISAGREES WITH SONYA’S FIRST SENTENCE IS 42 POINTS BELOW THE IMBECILE PERCENTILE, AND IS FAR FROM A CANDIDATE CAPABLE OF COMMENTING ON THE INTELLIGENCE OF ANOTHER HUMAN MENTALITY

          THIS MAN ALSO KNOWS THAT OBAMA IS DEATHLY AFRAID OF TRUTH ON ANY SOCIO-POLITICAL QUESTION– SIMPLY BECAUSE TRUTH TO THIS PRESIDENT’S POLITICS EXCEEDS THE TOXIC CAPACITY OF A QUART OF CYANIDE, CHASED BY A QUART OF ARSENIC. HE CANNOT EVEN GET CLOSE TO A WORD OF TRUTH.

    • jyrine

      The only thing Obama can do for the good of the country is to jump off a real high cliff and he would make me happy if he took Doc Sarvis along.

      • eddie47d

        Seems to be that jyrine is the one who is full of hate and rage and in duplicate.

  • newspooner

    lf there was an ounce of sincerity in the suggestion that the Administration would “ease business regulation”, then the first step would be a repeal of Obamacare. Anything short of that is deception designed to con marginal voters into the continued support of the total destruction of liberty.

    • minnie

      You are totally correct anything short of that is deception. He is just throwing little chips of bones that mean nothing, to pretend he wants to help Americans. Obama has being the biggest mistake in history, We were happy with President Bush, sometimes you do not know what you got until you lose it. Now that obama has proven that he is OUR WORST MISTAKE President, is this how al quaida started in the beginning?

      • Jana

        Sure, he put on 50 regualtions and will take away 10. If he was going to do it, why wait till he gets back from vacation.
        I don’t trust him.

    • ANNE

      I didn’t see anything about the EPA, their regulations are worse than any other for businesses. I realize that we do need some regulations on business, but the EPA has way too much power.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Some regulation is needed but business wants less. So the critical question is; where does one draw the line on regulation?

        • Jana

          Doc S,
          A good place to start drawing the line is when it stifles the growth of the economy, and we see millions of people out of work. Sounds like common sense to me.

        • eddie47d

          Some regulations are a necessity and some aren’t. Now that is also common sense.Some states have laws and regulations on the books from the 1800′s which aren’t serving any purpose. There are probably hundreds that could be canned.

          • Alan

            How come we always hear about (from ANY administration) the new rules that will be passed to “help”, but we never hear about the old rules that will be dumped?

      • http://certus-certusblogspot.com RAYMOND HARBIN

        ANNIE–THE EPA, AS CURRENTLY STAFFED, IS THE MOST RADICAL, MOST INTELLECTUALLY IMPOVERISHED AND DANGEROUS BUREAUCRACY IN THE HISTORY OF THIS REPUBLIC.

        IF CONGRESS DOES NOT CURB THIS MALICIOUS TYRANNICAL CRIME SYNDICATE BEFORE THE NOVEMBER ELECTION–THERE MAY BE LITTLE LEFT TO SAVE.

        IT MAY TAKE THE FIRST 3 OR FOUR YEARS OF THE NEW REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION’S TERM, JUST TO CLEAN THE IMBECILE EXCREMENT FROM THE D.C. OFFICE BUILDINGS AND FILES.

  • JUKEBOX

    I wonder if Obama will start by easing the new regulations for “GOAT AND SHEEP HERDERS” that were just announced. This is one of the most ORWELLIAN administrations in the history of our nation.

  • s c

    Hardy har har. That’s a good one, Cantor. So speeches and editorials won’t create jobs. Will someone tell the geekoids in the W H?
    It’s almost as though someone left the front door open at the W H, and a dab of common sense managed to crawl in undetected. America has been trying to tell you sons-of-progressives that you do NOT have a clue, you don’t care about jobs, we’d get a better deal with organized crime AND you couldn’t buy a clue at WalMart.
    You losers have NO business sense. To you, business is just a word. Calvin Coolidge was a world-class GENIUS compared to you dimwits. Hoover had more business sense (please don’t waste our time with the revised history of Hoover and FDR). A grade school kid who has access to a decent library will have more business sense than you losers if you live to be 150.
    And we’re supposed to have the “best and the brightest” in Washington? We don’t even have average talent. Forget the best and the brightest. Harvard, you went wrong big-time, bubbas.
    Chicago, Al Capone may be dead, but even HE had more business sense than ANY of the ‘Democrat’ putzoids who infest Washington and have made bad things WORSE. Go home, slimeballs. Resign. Disappear. Move to Cuba. Do SOMETHING constructive for a change.

    • Jana

      sc,
      Great post. Obama has NO ONE, not ONE person as a personal advisor that has any business experience. His way is the only way as far as he is concerned. He is anti business and he is defintely in way over his head. His own party is leaving him. He is a socialist and wants the United States to turn to socialism and he is wrong for this country.

      I remember when everyone got on to Rush Limbaugh because they said that Rush said he wanted this President to fail. What he actually said was he thought the plans that Obama had for this country were wrong, (socialism and communism) and he hoped they would fail. I agreed with him on this.

    • eddie47d

      Is that more of your foggy assumptions Jana? Sometimes Limbaugh is as clueless. We know exactly what he meant in wanting Obama too fail.

  • Raggs

    What was that that one politicans said during oblamas deathcare speech?… Oh yeah YOU LIE!!!!

    • Jana

      Raggs,
      Now, the ones who are smart are realizing that he lies all of the time. There was even a Supreme Court Judge who shook his head (no, unturue) while Obama President of BLAME was giving one of his useless addresses. He was blaming the Supreme Court for making a supposed bad decision, and Obama was taking great liberties with the truth as usual.

      • Doc Sarvis

        I think you are referring to the State of the Union Address where President Obama criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling that equates corporations with human beings. I totally agree with that criticism of the court’s ruling. It is yet another illustration of how linked big money is to the conservative Supreme Court.

        • eddie47d

          Amen Doc! Jana didn’t think we’d catch that one .

          • Doc Sarvis

            Yup – hit it outta the park.

        • jyrine

          I’m impressed Doc.

        • Jana

          Doc,
          The lawyers (I know lawyers is a bad word) said that Obama misspoke about what the Supreme Court did.

          • Doc Sarvis

            Misspoke? How so?

    • Sonja

      Correct and that was on Obama also stating that ILLEGALS would not be covered on his health plan, it came out a few days ago that Obama did indeed “LIE” AS THE ILLEGALS ARE INCLUDED TO RECEIVE MEDICAL ON HIS CORRUPT HEALTH PLAN.

      • eddie47d

        I see you overlooked the private insurance plans that have been ripping us off for decades Sonja. Now that is corruption at it’s best.

        • 45caliber

          eddie:

          There is an EASY way to keep those insurance companies from ripping us off, as you say. Just don’t buy it. No one is forcing you to do it. That is solely up to you.

          • s c

            45caliber, do you think e will ever own up to the idea that a union isn’t above running a healthcare plan and OVER-charging? This is just coming out into the open. One of e’s favorite sophomoric tricks is to accuse insurance firms of running up costs. Hmmmm.
            When unions do it and GET CAUGHT, things might get interesting in a hurry. After all these years, I’m STILL waiting for ANY union type to
            ADMIT that if it wasn’t for scum like Lenin and Marx, America would never have any frickin’ unions – let alone their insatiable greed for power, money, prostiute politicians and braindead followers.

          • eddie47d

            Which union is running a healthcare plan? If they did maybe things would improve and we wouldn’t have such a low ranking in the industrial world. Your private firms are raking in the money but not the exceptional service we should expect for what they charge. Got it SC.

          • eddie47d

            Caliber; Typical conservative reply in telling folks not to buy something. There is no reason why a broken wrist should cost $8,500 or a bottle of pills $400. I reckon we should all splint ourselves and hope for the best.

  • eddie47d

    Eric Cantor is never happy about anything. The Republicans are suppose to have all this business sense but apparently they lost it on their way to Washington. Where is their clue SC? Are they still looking into the bottom of a paper bag and coming up empty. Maybe you should be the one to move to Cuba with all your “brilliant” ideas in how to replenish this nation.Fidel would enjoy your tall tales of endless babble. Cantor and you do have something in common;allot of talk but little action.

    • Dennis48e

      The domocrats never had any business sense as far as Washington is concerned.

    • s c

      The point of this article is very simple. Your false W H god has ADMITTED that he’s been INTERFERING with private business. Among normal people, that is one hell of a thing to admit, dude. Earth to e – I didn’t realize that you were so emotional, dude. And this is before you have to take your required sensitivity training (to get your hardcore progressive certificate, I guess).
      While you’re at it, dude, look into what is known in psychological circles as ‘transference,’ in which party A accuses party B of doing what party A does but doesn’t want anyone to notice. It’s an old, childish trick that progressives have used to dumb-down their robots.
      Once again, your collective pants are down around your ankles. Doesn’t that get old and a bit hard to explain to those around youOne more thing – your W H god is a FALSE god. He’s using you to do his dirty work, dude.

      • eddie47d

        I was right,nothing but endless babble and psycho talk from SC. How was your little side trip to Cuba SC. We know which god you worship and it’s a cow patty on top of a pole.

    • Ellen

      Eddie, Perhaps Eric is just frustrated by having to go to work every day and deal with more stupid Obama crap. I understand that situation completely as, for 2 years, I had to go to work every day and listen to my manager and his stupid ideas. Thankfully, he was eventually fired – as Obama will be, too.

      • eddie47d

        Everyone has a right to dream Ellen and I hope you enjoy yours.

  • ONTIME

    The Mysery Man has no intention of easing any regulation that makes it better for business to function…he will however add more regulation and grow the government to cost business even more of their profit.

    • Karolyn

      You’re a psychic! You know everything that’s going to happen! Isn’t tht special?

      • 45caliber

        Karolyn:

        You don’t have to be psychic to look at what a man has said and done in the past and predict what he will do in the future based on that.

  • Wapitiman

    My Bible tells me that ‘a tree is judged by the fruit it bears’. The ‘fruit’ borne by our elected misrepresentatives is poisoning our country.

    • Doc Sarvis

      WE plant the tree that bares the fruit.

      • 45caliber

        And I believe that God says that the tree that bears the bad fruit shall be cut down and burned in fire.

        • Doc Sarvis

          cooool!

          • jyrine

            You are an idiot Doc.

  • 45caliber

    Is he going to ease the business burdens by eliminating regs or just not putting in as many as he feels are necessary? You know, the same way he eased our medical burdens with his Oblamacare?

    • s c

      45caliber, have you noticed the sickening, twisted, fanatical defense of OblameGBformebama’s followers? They actually get in line to defend the indefensible. It is so close to the adoration and blind lemming behavior of those in WWII Germany.
      When Hitler was in power the mantra said and implied ‘Love the fuhrer. follow the fuhrer. the fuhrer has plans. the fuhrer loves you, but you must love the fuhrer. if you do not love the fuhrer, the fuhrer will get you.’ Talk about deja frickin’ vu!
      It’s almost as though the W H fakir and his sheep think life is so simple that all you have to do is say something or dream up another scam and everyone will follow. That is SICK.
      If this administration had to be truthful, their heads would explode. The makers of Prozac must be wetting their pants in anticipation of opening new plants so they can ‘take care of’ Obailmeoutbama’s braindead followers. Even PT Barnum and Ponzi wouldn’t believe what’s happened.

  • Karolyn

    Warren Buffet just invested $5M in Bank of America, and their stock went up. That’s what we need. People willing to put their money where their mouth is.

    • Karolyn

      Actually, that’s $5 billion!

  • downs1

    Right! Obama promises to releave the pressure on business to create more jobs! If you believe Obama, that is a sure diagnostic sign that you have a serious mental disorder, i.e., a “psychosis”. It means you are out of touch with reality and you believe that by doing the same thing again and again you will eventually get a different answer! When you experience such frustration, you revert to a juvenile method of withdrawal by blaming everything on someone else, most often George W. Bush. This is one of the reasons that this nation is ultimately going down like all the other great world powers! The problem starts with the government, but ends with a large proportion of the people who have become dependent on others to meet all their needs. They give nothing themselves, they only suck from others! It is called socialism! Obama cannot change, his mouth says one thing, but he is absolutely unable to fulfill a promise! He is an autocrat!

    • eddie47d

      …or it could be called Capitalism run amuck!

  • Mike

    Ron Paul the cure for Obamidis.
    All these politicians promise you the world as they lie through their teeth. Obama isn’t the 1st and he won’t be the last (habitual liar with a smile, slick hair and can read from the teleprompter).

    It’s time to vote for someone who tells the truth, someone who stutters, someone that doesn’t smile for the camera.

    Ron Paul don’t need no stinking teleprompters.
