One of my biggest complaints about political news coverage is that, while tax and budget issues get plenty of press, regulation is mostly ignored. Seeing as the $1.8 trillion price tag for federal regulations is more than half the size of the federal budget, this is an enormous oversight. This week has been an exception.
Over at National Review‘s The Corner blog, Veronique de Rugy discusses some of the alarming numbers coming out of the regulatory state. The Drudge Report saw fit to link to Vero’s post, with the typically Drudgeian headline “Feds rolling out new regulation every 2.5 hours…”
Last night, Bret Baier was kind enough to rattle off some of the numbers on his Fox News program. You can watch the clip here.
It’s good to see these important numbers being aired publicly.
