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

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
