.....the administration in July only has put in $9.5 billion in new regulatory costs by proposing 229 new rules and finalizing 379 rules. Among those he cited were EPA, healthcare reform, and financial regulatory reform rules.

"Growing the economy isn't just about cutting spending; it's not about rolling back regulations that protect our air and our water and keep our people safe. That's not how we're going to get past this recession. We're going to have to do more than that." — President Obama, statement, August 2, 2011.


is he saying,... it's going to take alot of regulations to just get US past the regulations he has already has imposed on our economy..

Ozone Standards. Four years after the Bush administration finalized limits on ground-level ozone under the Clean Air Act, the Obama administration has opened the door to tightening current ozone limits by as much as 20 percent. The NAM cited one study contending that such a move could result in a loss of 7.3 million jobs between now and 2020. The Environmental Protection Agency is slated to make a final decision on the rule by the summer of 2012.

Industrial and Commercial Boiler Emissions. EPA is in the bull's-eye on this one, too, with the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners saying that a proposed rule to clamp down on boiler emissions could put nearly 340,000 jobs on the line, and cost more than $20 billion in compliance costs to industry

the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued partial guidance to increase ethanol content in gasoline to 15%

I guess this is why Obama decided to re-focus the media's attention on his new jobless tour..

recession... when your neighbor loses his job...

depression,.. when you lose your job..

recovery, when Obama loses his job..
