OMB: 13-year High For New And Costly Federal Regulations

The group that tracks regulations, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told Secrets that Obama has issued far more big dollar regs in his first six years than former President Bush: 376 for Obama to 287 for Bush.

“And,” said CEI's Clyde Wayne Crews Jr., “this is not even counting the ‘pen' and ‘phone' rulemaking happening off the books.” He just blogged on the issue.

In his latest report on the price of regulations, Crews said that U.S. households “pay”$14,974 annually in regulatory hidden tax.”
