Democrats and the Media Freeze the Country as Trump Moves Ahead

681

The Trump administration is actually doing more than fending off the far left and the media. Americans witness one false claim after another being rebutted. After 11 months of all the innuendo, falsehoods or outright lies, something is actually being done for the country on other fronts.

The Trump White House is dramatically reducing the cost of doing business in America, sharply curtailing the volume and price tag of regulations compared with what prevailed under Barack Obama. That is not innuendo, falsehoods or outright lies.

The citizens of this country who elected a president to get a job done will not read or hear about much more than Russians around every corner and “anonymous sources” spouting one incredible fairy tale after another. It is up to citizens to go beyond the mainstream media to uncover exactly what is being done for their daily lives.

A new report by the American Action Forum terms the regulation reductions “historic,” saying the regulatory “freeze” started by Trump after his inauguration has persisted. This past month, the White House has released just eight percent of the historical volume of regulation.

Trump moves ahead, cuts regulations.
Trump moves ahead, cuts regulations.

It goes further than that. Cabinet agencies have only finalized $33 million in costs, compared to a 2005 to 2017 average of $26 billion. On the cost side, regulatory output is just 0.12 percent of historic norms. For small and large businesses in this country, it means higher output and better jobs at a higher pay rate.

These are not McDonald’s jobs. These are positions that actually can feed and house an average family with money in the bank.

During the period covered in the report, the average administration reviewed 190 rules; the Trump Administration reviewed 39. In the average year, there were 33 economically significant reviews; the Trump Administration reviewed just 16. On average, there were 30.8 significant rules approved, not just reviewed; this administration has released ten.

Yesterday, the president talked about cutting regulations related to aviation that cause $25 billion in lost economic output.

What is making the difference? Unlike his opponent in the presidential election, Donald Trump is a businessman. He has been responsible for the hiring of thousands of American workers and met a payroll in the millions. His wealth came from smart business decisions and not a lifetime on the government payroll and no real world experience.

Trump knows first-hand the crippling effects of excessive regulation. He is keeping his promise to free up business activity and create jobs. Don’t expect to read or hear much about this other side to the Trump administration from the mainstream media.

The majority of the Democratic Party media is committed to undermining anything and everything that could be helpful to the average American. They lost the election and will do everything in their power to make the main business of the country all about their loss.

The mainstream media wants you to think you were stupid not to elect Hillary Clinton. They want you to think you didn’t know how stupid you were. The Democrats and their media partners will stop at nothing to ensure the country stands still until they get their way and you see the light of your error.
