Dem. Governor Claims Fewer Regulations Under Obama Than Under Bush
From Neil Monro's article in The Daily Caller:
Obama’s statement was true, but skewed, because he’s far outpacing Bush in the production of “economically significant” regulations, each of which imposes costs of more than $100 million per year, said Wayne Crews, a vice president for policy and director of technology studies at the free-market Institute.
Bush produced 12,587 “final rules” in his first three years, while Obama produced slightly fewer, or 10,810, “final rules,” according to Crews’ data, which is drawn from a federal website, reginfo.gov/public/.
