BREAKING: Obama To Push Six BILLION Dollars In Legislation Before He Leaves Office

By

Barack Hussein Obama only has a few weeks left in office, but he’s trying to go out with a bang by inflicting as many harmful regulations on us as he can.

Conservative Tribune reported that Obama is planning to push nearly $6 billion in legislation during the final days of his presidency. His administration is reportedly working on five environmental rules to go into effect before he leaves the White House. Earlier this month, the American Action Forum made a frightening announcement about how much these midnight regulations will cost the American people.

These five measures alone could impose $5.1 billion in costs and more than 350,000 paperwork burden hours,” AAF wrote. “In addition, three other rules in proposed form could add $898 million in burdens and 146,000 paperwork hours, for a cumulative total of nearly $6 billion in potential midnight costs and nearly 500,000 burden hours from the two agencies.

Four of the regulations came from the Environmental Protection Agency, while the last was to be implemented via the Department of the Interior.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Obama is also planning to implement a flurry of additional regulations “on commodities speculation, immigrant workers and for-profit colleges — among others.” They added that Obama’s goal is to overwhelm President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration with more rules and regulations than it would have either the time or resources to repeal.

The WSJ went on to say that Trump’s best strategy would be to “send a powerful message to future presidents and build public support by highlighting the ‘midnight regulation’ phenomenon and then making it a priority to ax every final Obama order.”
