With The Stroke Of A Pen Obama Is Finished For Good

Never underestimate the power of the pen.

Throughout his Presidency, Obama has used his pen to veto sound legislation and advance the agenda of a bloated federal government.

Liberals have enjoyed Obama’s 8-year political dominance, as he smugly shoved his radical leftist agenda down the throats of everyday Americans.

Burdensome federal regulations have broken the bank accounts of countless numbers of hard working Americans.

Federal agencies have gone rouge, knowing they can do whatever they want because Obama would back them up.

The repercussions of the Obama administration have been crushing, and voters sent a loud and clear message when they overwhelmingly elected Donald Trump as America’s next President.

Donald Trump’s victory is a serious game changer.

Just by his signature alone, Donald Trump now has the power to undue dozens of Obama’s crippling regulations.

A 20-year old law, The Congressional Review Act, allows Congress 60 legislative days to review all federal regulations and eliminate the ones they don’t want.

Republicans have tried this measure over the years and failed, because Obama has vetoed the law every time it’s crossed his desk.

However, with Republicans controlling Congress and the White House now, Trump is said to approve of all regulations Congress wishes to axe.

And according to The New York Times, once Congress strikes down a rule, federal agencies are prohibited from enacting the same regulation again.

The New York Times reports:

“On Jan. 20, when Mr. Trump takes office with a Republican-controlled Congress — one that has indicated its zeal for undoing President Obama’s doings — more than 150 rules adopted since late May are potentially vulnerable to the ax, according to an analysis by the George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center.

 

“It allows the election results to be applied almost retroactively, to snip off activity that happened at the end of the last administration,” said Adam Levitin, a law professor at Georgetown.

The regulations at risk include:

■ Many environmental mandates, including limits on formaldehyde use and stricter truck fuel efficiency rules;

 

■ A Food and Drug Administration ban on the sale of antibacterial soaps;

 

■ A requirement that federal contractors provide paid sick leave for their workers;

 

■ Stricter consumer protections on prepaid debit cards;

 

■ Federal loan forgiveness for students at schools that shut down;

 

■ A rule that bars nursing homes that receive federal funding from requiring residents to resolve all disputes through arbitration, rather than in court.”

Bloated federal agencies are terrified of Trump using his power to virtually eliminate all the regulations Obama has based his political legacy on.

And as American Patriot Daily previously reported, Obama’s dread is setting in as he realizes his version of America has been rejected by the will of the American people.

With Obama’s America a distant memory, Trump vows to begin making America great again.

With Trump in the White House, and a Republican controlled Congress, Obama’s liberal pals are powerless to stop the conservative wave that is gearing up to hit Washington DC.

Do you think Congress should use the Congressional Review Act to strike down burdensome federal regulations?

Do you agree that undoing Obama’s regulations should be a top priority for President-elect Donald Trump?

    Absolutely, It’s past time to stop all this crazy nonsense regulation. He and his wife, ( the Obama’s), haven’t wasted even the slightest thought of being any ways conservative. For all the rules he made up to try and be a doogooder, and stroked that pen way too much, he and his Family have cost this country millions in security, flights, vacations, and over lavish commodities that Never should have been imposed on the American people, especially while were so Dang Broke. Again, THANKS OBAMA. He has performed numerous treasonous acts, letting the terrorists brothers of his out of GIZMO, Stupid gender bathroom agendas, too many to list. Obamacare, I can’t even afford insurance anymore! ts time to get outta my country, and 1 more thing, I want the Clinton’s and their BS charity to be tried alongside the Obama’s for Treason as they sold out our country. His Agenda George Sores policies are about to come to a screeching halt. Its time to cut the head off the snake(S)

  • marina knife

    Absolutely.

  • I think that Congress should begin now to make the list of executive orders that need to be axed rather than wait the 60 days after Trump’s inauguration. The sooner these unconstitutional regulations and executive orders are cut the better. It would also send a message to all businesses that Trump’s administration is getting a running start on making good on promises and giving them hope that tax cuts and millions of more jobs are coming soon.

    Congress should have all this waiting for President Trump when he sits down at his desk on Monday morning January 23 so our new President can have it signed before his first coffee break.

    • nicholsda

      Why wait till then? He gets sworn in at noon and by 1500 he should have them signed.

  • David Stewart

    And so ends this once-proud nation’s first real experiment with a Communist dictator in control! I truly hope history records the behavior of this foreign-born Marxist accurately!

    • sunandfun

      WE can only HOPE that Americans have learned a value able lesson from the last 8 years!

      • Bud William

        Some have learned, but I think the Stupid Democrats still don’t get it.

    • Rich Olmsted

      Yes, and it is a testament to the wisdom of our founders and the inherent strength of our country that we were able to survive 8 years of the first anti-American communist president and will soon thrive again under the America-first agenda of Don Trump.

  • rtwngr

    He can strike down the Iran deal but he can’t get our money back. That’s already been distributed to Hezbollah and Hamas via the Revolutionary Guard. He’ll just have to wipe them off the map.

    • Evan

      Great idea!

    • sunandfun

      It would be worthwhile losing the money if we could SHIP the Obummers to IRAN for good!

      • nicholsda

        Better would be if they took Hillary with them.

  • Evan

    Here’s hoping Mr. Trump will undo everything obama has
    done! He did absolutely NOTHING positive for America!
    Hope he and his he/she wife are soon gone and NEVER
    heard from again! GO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • sunandfun

      THAT WOULD GREAT!

  • ricktenny

    Yes Sir, stop this foolishness as fast as is humanly possible. Especially as the silly regulations on our Military. When I fought in Viet Nam, our Chaplin came to the field and conducted Service for all of us and I say this to any liberal, if you don’t think knowing your soul is right with Jesus Christ when you saddle up to meet your armed foe, them you are as delusional as the president who put these regulations in place and the high ranking generals who did not fight him over it.

  • kjenkinsaf

    I agree with everything you’ve written. Except for the word “rouge”. I do not think it means what you think it means, (ala Inigo Montoya). While I’m sure there are members of both sexes within the Republican party that use rouge. I believe the word you want is “rogue”.

  • SCOTT

    Remember folks, we the people have all the power. This election is proof of that. Now we must take that power to the Congressional level and district by district, State by State and start cleaning house of people like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Pocohantus Elizabeth Warren, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Kelly Ayotte, Susan Collins , and the list goes on, from both sides of the aisle. Get involved, Be involved, and Stay involved, voting for candidates that share your values and not just interested in their own. Career politicians must be stopped in their tracks and term limits imposed. This was never meant to happen through the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. Voting yourself pay increases when you haven’t accomplished a damn thing or, providing yourselves benefits like healthcare that the average American could only dream of. Instead, we get OBAMACARE; the Affordable Care Act that is not affordable. We the people can and must take back our government. Donald J. Trump is just the start. If we don’t do this, then who will and, if we don’t do it now, then when will it get done? I propose that ‘We’ the people of this Great Country can do it and ‘WE’ can do it now. In Trump, we have created the movement and now it is time for the Revolution to begin. A Government Of, By, and For the People!!! May GOD bless the United States of America.

    Congress should make Obuttface pay for all of the times his wife used the plane on her little jaunts and the times he used the plane for leisure (unnecessary use) that cost the tax payers. I wonder how he would like his daughters having to share a bathroom, shower with men (transgender)? Something he approved. Obuttface should be rope swinging after being tried for treason…Well no that would be to swift. He needs to linger for days if not weeks, his punishment for the all of the pain he has caused the American Citizens.

  • Brenda Saline Randall

    MY CONCERN IS THAT OBAMA STILL HAS EXECUTIVE POWER ! ISNT THERE A LIMITED POWER ACT THAT CAN REMOVE HIS AUTHRORITY TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW OR WAR OR CONTINUE TO ISSUE EXECUTIVE ORDERS ? I READ THE LAW THEY RECENTLY PASSED TO REIGN HIM BACK TO CONGRESS TO PASS LAWS-BUT DOES HE STILL HOLD POWER TO DESCLARE MARTIAL LAW? ISNT THAT THE MOST IMPORT THING WE MUST DO IS TO INTERVENE ON ALL EXECUTIVE POWER TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW OR WAR ?? IM LOOKING FOR REASURANCE THAT HE DOES NOT STILL HAVE THAT AUTHORITY !!!

    • nicholsda

      If he tried to block Trump from coming in, it would get very messy. For him. Too many people have sworn an Oath to the Constitution and would be willing to back up that Oath.

    • PATRICIA MEAD

      The Obamas and Clintons have learned that we the people are not as stupid and gullible as they hoped. They know we are many and are watching what they are planning to do to get even because of the embarrassment they are suffering. They thought they had successfully destroyed our Christian religion and set us up for total destruction Knowing the power of the people is the only thing that will keep them from their evil plans. Pray for America and our new leaders.

  • Ed Davis

    First priority should be to get out the dozens of Radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood that Obummer has steadily infiltrated into our government ranks, and blanket cancel ALL EXECUTIVE ORDERS since 2008 while they sort through to see if any have enough merit to be re-instated.
