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

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
