Today you need hours of training and a license to do a countless number of jobs throughout the United States. These requirements cover jobs that are not only highly-skilled, potentially dangerous professions like medical surgeons, but also pet groomers, interior designers, florists and hair braiding.

House Democrat who worries about Guam tipping over doubts regulations hurt the economy

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) has a history of making peculiar remarks that have often become the butt of jokes on talk radio. In a 2010 committee hearing, for example, he expressed his "fear" that Guam would "tip over and capsize" due to overpopulation. In April 2013, while the lower chamber was debating the Helium Stewardship Act, he told his colleagues to "[i]magine...a world without balloons."

Obama's $181 billion in executive actions are being passed on to consumers through higher prices

Americans already face a $1.8 trillion regulatory burden. These heavy costs are passed on by businesses to consumers, who spend almost a quarter of their annual income complying with regulations often approved executive-level agencies, which have effectively become the fourth branch of the federal government.

Five Regulatory Fights for 2015

Regulations Rob the Internet of Its Dynamic Evolution

President Obama recently weighed in on the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) net neutrality proceedings, basically endorsing a government takeover of the internet. Given the president's predilections for executive orders, the decision is not surprising. Imposing sweeping new regulations on the internet would continue the expansion of the administrative state that the president favors. But new regulations come at the price of reduced innovation and lower levels of capital investment, which is unfortunate, because neither the administration nor the FCC have yet to make the case that current internet policies have been problematic.

Regulations Are Stifling Economic Growth

As the size and scope of government have expanded, regulators have come to play a much larger role in our day-to-day lives. The advent of the administrative state has created a web of regulations covering everything from design standards for electric appliances to new rules that require hotels and restaurants to accommodate miniature horses as service animals. All too often, common sense is being replaced with exacting statutes and regulations that dictate very specific forms of compliance.
