From Mike Whalen's op-ed on The Huffington Post:
Unfortunately, when it comes to our current government and regulation, the reality is that where there's smoke there's fire. When one counts "economically significant" regulations, as the Competitive Enterprise Institute has, he or she sees that President Obama has issued 953  in his first three years in office, compared to just 30 that were passed in the first three years of the Bush Administration. This is the more meaningful number, as it shows which regulations have impacted small businesses and made it more difficult for them to expand and hire.
