Even before Trump took office, the markets sky rocketed.
There was economic optimism in the air. All was good again after the long drought.
Trump had promised economic changes such as tax and regulatory reform. We just recently heard the tax reform is coming soon.
Once he was in office, Trump lead us to one of the best job growth quarters in a generation.
Good start to say the least.
But that’s not all he’s done.
Trump has saved taxpayers not millions, but billions of dollars in regulatory costs.
And he’s only been in office for a couple months!
According to The Hill:
President Trump has saved taxpayers more than $86 billion in regulatory costs during his first three months in the White House, according to a new study from a conservative group.
The American Action Forum (AAF) points to several Obama-era regulations that Trump has either rolled back on his own or with the help of Republican lawmakers using the Congressional Review Act (CRA).
Trump has gone on a “deregulation binge” and we love it. He isn’t overlooking anything.
This includes the Education Department’s school accountability standards, the Environmental Protection Agency’s waters of the United States rule and the so-called “blacklisting” rule for government contractors.
These are just a few examples mentioned in the report. Since taking office, Trump and Congress have repealed 13 rules with the CRA. The CRA allows lawmakers to overturn recent rules they disapprove of with a simple majority in Congress, and send the action to the president for his signature.
The economy is booming. Trump’s tactics are working.
Is it enough to get some Dems to finally listen to him?
