Segment Two: Red Tape Raising – Obama-Era Regulation at the Three-Year Mark
During the first three years of the Obama Administration, 106 new major federal regulations added more than $46 billion per year in new costs for Americans. This is almost four times the number—and more than five times the cost—of the major regulations issued by George W. Bush during his first three years.
We will discuss what all this red tape means with James Gattuso (http://www.heritage.org/about/staff/g/james-gattuso) , of the Heritage Foundation, author of the study ‘Red Tape Raising – Obama-Era Regulation at the Three-Year Mark’ (http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2012/03/red-tape-rising-obama-era-regulation-at-the-three-year-mark)
