"Federal agencies crank out thousands of new regulations every year, but we have little information on the cost or effectiveness on most of them," says Mr. Crews. "There's little transparency, and no reliable source of information on exactly what benefits rules are supposed to be generating or if they are serving their intended purpose."
He adds, "The regulatory state wasn't small before, but it has grown at an alarming rate during the Obama administration. The president has said publicly he will not wait for Congress to pass legislation because he has a pen and a phone. This means the administration aims to implement policy through regulation which will add a hidden tax on every form of commerce and trickle down to all consumer."
