GOPer decries 'regulation without representation'

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) used his first speech from the Senate floor to press for legislation that would create a panel to review federal rules, calling for an end to "regulation without representation." 

"Our great nation has been bogged down in recent years with what I believe is one of the greatest hindrances to job growth and economic productivity, and that is the overregulation of our citizens," he said Tuesday. 

Rounds introduced the Regulation Sensibility Through Oversight Restoration Resolution, which would create a Joint Select Committee to review new rules, as well as hold hearings on the impact of those already in place, and make recommendations on reducing regulatory overreach. 
 
He added that his legislation would "take a giant leap forward in restoring the people's role in the rule-making process." 
 
"Unfortunately, the voice of the people in the rule-making process has been cut out and replaced by unelected government bureaucrats who think they know better than the farmer or the scientist or the entrepreneur," he said.

Good luck with that. We all know that we now live in a "regulation nation" and that's the way the idiots maintain CONTROL! 

  It is time to announce that the addresses of all of the rules and regulators are being typed up for public distribution as we speak.

Regulations only apply to the "Strawman".  Many Americans since birth have been enslaved by the "Strawman", never knowing who or what it is, they work and work and never get ahead.  Regulations apply to the corporate citizen, the chattel property of the United States Corporation.  The difference is the color of the pill, either red or blue, we all can choose how far to go down that rabbit hole.  The truth will set you free, in as much as you will understand the non-congruent history of our corporate country and the fact that LAWS don't apply to the ruling class like they apply to the working classes.

A heck of a lot of bloviating, but no action.  That's why the DemonRats have been emboldened.

Ted Cruz is the guy.

This is a great Idea, but who would be representing the people's standpoint? Who would fill the shoes to represent the people? I thought we already had representatives of the people. I think we need to get rid of those who are "Supposed" to represent "The People", and start from there. Then maybe we can have a special committee to review new and old regulations, but this idea will creating more government bureaucracy. The Idea is good, but I for one, do not trust the another government committee that involves the current government representatives to pull off a "Win" for the people.

Senator Rounds where have you been for the last 6 years? Now you want more legislation to somewhat deregulate  instead of stopping the illegal regulations to begin with.

"Regulation" initially meant "to make regular" meaning to keep the flow of goods from one state to another uninhibited.  Which meant preventing states from setting up roadblocks, taxes, etc.  Boy has that word every been misinterpreted!

What is the proper function of government, and what should a constitution contain?  Please watch:

How about you just DEFUND the alphabet regulators..ie EPA..that would be so much simpler and less costly than holding "hearings" that will get NOWHERE

Duh...been going on forever. Politicians claim they were our representatives and that they were elected to frame such agencies into the law to do things this way.

The only way to get rid of this crap is to totally eliminate the agencies that created it. Then ban anyone who ever worked for them from ever working in government.

I think his (first) speech on the floor was a good one - he (must be new? haven't heard anything from him before...) was emphasizing the fact that this Admin/Congress has taken away any concept of a government being directed by its citizens; not the other way around.  Each and every regulation, EO, or other administrative means to assert control has turned into a disaster; yet our Congress continues to go along with the same mistakes over and over - that's the definition of insanity.  

I was thinking that too the other day - taxes to the states only; then the states pay the very small/limited Federal Government for the few things necessary from (a Federal) government - and they do so only on performance basis.  That would include military and the interstates.  No contracts negotiated by our government - companies do that; governments don't need to.    The "Feds" would basically have 50 (plus territories) agents to deal with.  That would decrease the size of the Federal Govt.  The States already employ more than enough people to do anything/everything.  

It's about TIME some one took thes un-elected bureaucrates to task enough !!.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
