Nullify and Void Bureaucratic Regulations
If elected, I will sponsor and work diligently to pass legislation to nullify and void all regulations, laws, and restrictions generated by federal government bureaucracies.
Why we must nullify and void bureaucracy-mandated regulations
- Politicians grant vast powers to thousands of bureaucracies at all levels of government.
- Bureaucrats impose millions of regulations on Americans that were not put to a vote by elected bodies.
- People and businesses cannot possibly keep abreast of, much less comply with, today’s high volume of government regulations. This makes criminals out of ordinary citizens.
- The average American unwittingly commits three felonies every day due to government over-regulation.
- By requiring congress to vote on every regulation, and getting rid of those not put to a vote, the volume will go down to a much more reasonable and manageable level.
- Government regulations drown businesses and citizens in red tape, causing waste and frustration.
- Government regulations force Americans to spend $3-4 trillion every year for compliance. This is the cost of bookkeeping, financial advisers, lawyers, armies of bean counters, and the inefficiencies that regulations cause.
- Most government regulations are not needed. Where they don’t exist, market regulators step in to keep products and services safe, effective, and competitively priced.
- Market regulators take many forms including media watchdogs, customer feedback and ratings for products and services, user forums, and professional societies that certify suppliers.
- For example, Underwriters Laboratory (UL) sets standards for electrical safety. Virtually every electrical vendor conforms to UL standards. No government was involved in UL’s formation or its decades of success.
- Government regulations are typically outdated, wasteful, clumsy and nonsensical. They make products and services less safe, sometimes even dangerous.
- Market regulations respond quickly to changes in the marketplace and result in much better, safer products and services.
- The high cost of government bureaucracies raises government spending, taxes, and debt.
- Getting rid of bureaucracies will enable dramatic reductions in government spending, tax cuts, and less government debt.
- Government regulations kill millions of American jobs.
- Getting rid of regulations will make it easy for small businesses to open and expand, creating jobs. An economic boom will result.
- Government regulations drive up the cost of food, clothing, household items, and virtually everything Americans buy.
- Removing government regulations will allow U.S. businesses to lower prices for consumers.
- Over-regulation makes American businesses inability to compete in world markets.
- Getting rid of regulations will make America competitive.
- Bureaucracies that mandate regulations often enforce them as well, violating individual rights and due process.
- Nullifying and voiding bureaucratic regulations will restore due process, protecting individual rights.
