It’s time for every single alphabet agency that is writing the rules and laws around our legislative branch (the peoples’ representatives) must be abolished.
The modern administrative state; we talk about this all the time, has power, resources and tenticles which boggle the mind. For example, in 2008, the small business administration estimated that annual regulatory compliance costs amount to 1.752trillion dollars a year or 11% of the gross domestic product. 11% of all the wealth created by the private economy; this is apart from taxation. Last year, the Obama administration issued new regulations costing 236 billion dollars. New EPA regulations alone resulted in 172 billion dollars of the 136 billion dollars last year. Last year, the Federal Register, the official federal publication documenting administrative rules and proposed rules exceeded 77,000 pages. Mark, where you getting this from? I did my own research, like always. In 2011 and 2010 federal registers were 81,247 pages and 81,405 pages long respectively.
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a quarter million, excuse me, 250,000 pages of regulations in three years. A quarter of a million pages, pages! In 2012, the federal bureaucracy reportedly issued 212, just in one year, 212 economically significant federal rules; meaning each regulation was projected to impose over 100 million dollars in economic costs over a period of a year. In the last ten years, the issuance of economically significant rules has increased 108%.
That’s alot of rules, and what’s interesting is, if we take a year like 2011, we have federal regulatory agencies issued 3807 final rules; this has the impact of law – these rules. Congress passed and the president signed 81 laws. So in 2011,the legislative branch and the executive passed and signed 81 laws; the bureaucracy issued 3807 laws.
You know what this is ladies and gentlemen? This is not a constitutional republic. This is a federal government completely out of control.
Mark Levin – Purpose of the Constitution – May 28, 2013 – Full Show
District of Criminals; did you really think weeks of haggling over, roughly, $40 billion dollars was anywhere as important as the $14,282 BILLION that we owe on the national debt, the $113 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities, or did you just think that your little kabuki theatre would be all that and a bag of chips? Do the republicans really believe that Americans are so stupid as to not KNOW that the House controls all the spending of the entire government or that Ben Bernanke’s moves to save his buddies in banking, insurance, and real estate isn’t going to collapse the entire financial system and kill the goose that laid the golden egg (the middle class)?
Maybe. Maybe not; but America is picking sides right now, and the district of criminals is not falling on the proper side of history. Fair warning…
We keep hearing that it is all about cutting the budget. In fact, House Speaker John Boehner says that his party is “damn serious about it”.
But that is a joke. The federal budget deficit for this year is going to be approximately $1.6 trillion dollars. The Republicans were asking for just $61 billion in budget cuts (3.8% of the budget deficit) and there are rumors that Republican and Democratic negotiators have agreed to a figure of $38 billion in budget cuts.
Is this why the Tea Party was sent to Washington?
$38 billion would just be 2.4 percent of the $1.6 trillion dollar deficit.
Wow, that is really wielding the budget cutting axe!
Look, the U.S. government cannot spend a single penny from now on without Republicans going along with it.
The Republicans control the House of Representatives. Barack Obama and the Senate will not have a single dime to spend unless they can get the House to go along with it.
If the Democrats want money to implement Obamacare then they have to get the Republicans to go along with it.
If the Democrats want to give money to the EPA to implement Obama’s “green agenda” then they have to get the Republicans to go along with it.
In fact, pretty much whatever the Democrats want to do, they have to get the Republicans to agree to fund it.
So if you don’t like what Obama and the Democrats are doing, don’t just blame them.
Blame the Republicans as well.
Both parties are deeply corrupt and both parties have gotten us to the point we are at.
Sadly, it looks like any deal that the Republicans and the Democrats are going to agree to is going to include virtually everything that the Democrats want.
Mark Levin, “This is a historic scam; these are ponziites.”
Since Boehner said the republicans will never shut down the government, and since he has said repeatedly, “we are only half of one third of the government”, well then, what the hell are they going to do on the other issues? What is their strategy exactly? How are they going to combat the debt ceiling and fight for $6.2 Trillion dollars in cuts when he has already said, “we’re not going to shut down the government”, and “we are only half of one third of the federal government.” And by the way, Neil, they are 100% of the spending bills and tax authority under the Constitution. They can stop whatever they want to stop.
Cue the music. America, you are getting very sleepy…
This is NOT what the Tea Party was sent to Washington to do, and as stated before, this is going to end very badly for the people on the wrong side of history.
America KNOWS that we are watching the financial, societal, and moral collapse of our nation due to the mismanagement of ‘too numerous to name’ political insiders driven by greed and the agenda of globalists. When push comes to shove, the globalists are outnumbered, America is still armed, and downing espresso shots. Americans are soon going to choose to ‘opt out’. ‘Nuff said.
A Congressional Budget Office analysis of the fiscal 2011 spending deal that Congress will vote on Thursday concludes that it would cut spending this year by less than one-one hundredth of what both Republicans or Democrats have claimed.
A comparison prepared by the CBO shows that the omnibus spending bill, advertised as containing some $38.5 billion in cuts, will only reduce federal outlays by $352 million below 2010 spending rates. The nonpartisan budget agency also projects that total outlays are actually some $3.3 billion more than in 2010, if emergency spending is included in the total.
Mark Levin has come away from this interview as most people do, impressed as hell by Allen West, his stances on the issues and his ability to communicate. Mark ends this interview by giving Allen West his endorsement.
Delaware; land of Joe Biden (36 years in the Senate), and Rep. Mike Castle (17 years in the House), who voted FOR the T.A.R.P., the Omnibus, Serve America Act, Credit Card Accountability Act, Cap and Trade, and the Fin Reg Reform Bill (among others). Considering Castle’s inability to vote for limited government like a true Republican (he votes with Obama 6 of 10 votes), there might actually be a bigger upset than Scott Brown’s resounding defeat of Martha Coakley rapidly approaching The First State when tea party endorsed Christine O’Donnell spanks Castle with the help of impoverished Delawareans and YOU – the rest of America.
A taste of Christine’s Constitutional conservatism when she was interviewed by Mark Levin on June 24, 2010:
According to an interview that Scott Rasmussen gave on July 21st with Rick Jensen, Christine could actually win Biden’s senate seat (and give it back to Delawareans). Christine has surpassed democrat Chris Coons in the polls, whilst Mike’s numbers have been steadily dropping against Coons.
(LEESBURG, VA, MARCH 17, 2010)…Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, today issued a warning to the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives about the possible use of the so-called “deem and pass,” “self-executing,” or “Slaughter Rule” to enact H.R. 3590, the legislative version of President Obama’s healthcare proposal that has been previously approved by the Senate. If this tactic is employed, Landmark will immediately sue the President, Attorney General Eric Holder and other relevant cabinet members to prevent them from instituting this unconstitutional contrivance.
“Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn’t. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution.”
