Boehner says Congress "Ought to be Judged on how many Laws we Repeal" Ay CarambaSubmitted by Michaelwiseguy on Sun, 07/21/2013 - 15:46
One of my pet peeve sound bites from the leftists I always wanted to have addressed and skewered.
Bob Schieffer asks House Speaker John Boehner, "Any way you cut it, you have presided over what is the least productive, and certainly what is the least popular Congresses in history, how do you feel about that?"
The answer surprised me, and happily so. We are a nation of 40,000 laws, codes , rules, and regulations. Perhaps more, I lost count. The Rule of 40,000 Laws seems a bit excessive to me. The Democrats always want more laws because more laws means more government employees needed to enforce those laws, thus the constantly growing size of government. This isn't rocket science, it's cause and effect.
For too long mainstream media news reporters have been throwing this particular sound bite in our face with their hidden agenda behind it. I just explained what that hidden agenda is, and they didn't think we'd catch on. Reduce the total number of laws and you reduce the size of government. It's that simple.
I must give praise to House Speaker John Boehner for uttering these words, especially because he's one of the loudest mouth pieces in DC, if for no other reason. The more laws we repeal, the better off we'll be.
"WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner says Congress “ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal.”
The Ohio Republican makes the comments on an interview aired Sunday on CBS “Face the Nation.” He was responding to a question about how little Congress is doing these days.
Boehner says Congress “should not be judged by how many new laws we create.”
He says the U.S. has “more laws than the administration could ever enforce.”"
