Study: Obama Imposed $4B More in Regulations Than Trump Did During First 100 Days

President Donald Trump imposed less than one percent of the regulatory burdens that former President Barack Obama did during his first 100 days, according to a new study from the American Action Forum.

The conservative think tank tracked regulatory costs created by each administration during their first 100 days. AAF found that Obama imposed $4 billion in regulatory costs while Trump imposed less than one percent of that at $28 million.

Trump, whose deregulatory actions AAF suggested were a “success,” didn’t approve any major new regulations during his first 100 days but was able to slash regulatory costs.

The Market Stabilization Rule, enacted under Trump to regulate health care markets, did not impose any new burdens. Trump’s other regulatory change, a delay in the Fiduciary Rule, resulted in a $78 billion drop in regulatory costs.

Obama, on the other hand, approved nine major new rules in the beginning of his presidency. Those alone amounted to $3.1 billion.

    Trump has been in about 3 months . Obama had 96 months to screw taxpayers ,add thousands of new regulations, double the national debt and turn the mightiest
    military in the world to an impotent pop gun .
    Given what Trump is dealing with it seems reasonable to cut him some slack however if he back tracks on the promise to exit the Paris Agreement we will know the slide into the swamp has begun . I don’t recall his family trying to talk him out of cancelling the
    Paris Agreement when he was trying to get elected . The question is have some of them been compromised ?

    Call it for what it is

    Anything Obama did could not be criticized nor rebuked because
    Obama was a nigger
    Regardless how destructive to he USA and the economy and the Constitution
    Obama was a nigger and therefor cannot be criticized.

    Witness further that
    ANYTHING
    President Trump does is immediately subject to utmost scrutiny
    AND even extrajudicial REJECTION by

    Leftist PIGS who think they are G-d.

    While it was considered to be the equivalent of a crime to criticize the extremist leftist policies of Obama whose family are to this day still
    SLAVEHOLDERS IN KENYA.

    I’ve seen and agreed with most of your posts but this last one doesn’t seem like you
    and if it is then I’d suggest race baiting is best left to CNN and factions of the disintegrating Democrat Party .
    Obama got a free pass most of the time because he actually did very little except in the end firing off executive orders spoon feed from Democrat bag men and his thirst for a legacy . A $20 Trillion debt ,a failing Obama Care medical debacle that most Democrats never reviewed and an improved golf handicap are his legacy issues . If it was you please lose the N word my friend we” Deplorables” &” Deniers” don’t need to go to their level . The scientific facts and the green welfare state motives speak for themselves .
