The Regulatory Landscape in America - A Morass Of Red Tape Designed To Create A Command Economy

Yesterday, I reported on the volume of regulations headed our way in 2013 that rivals Darth Vader's Galactic Empire for sheer size, as well as oppressiveness. Today, The Heritage Foundation is out with its Top 10 Regulations of 2012:

2012 Year In Review

Every year since college, my best friend Dan and I have submitted our best observations on a wide range of topics that reflect on the year that has just expired. We follow the well established template of The McLaughlin Group program. Here are my reflections on 2012.

Diving Off the Regulatory Cliff

While Americans wait ever-anxiously for our elected leaders to hammer out a solution to the so-called fiscal cliff, business leaders and economic analysts have already watched the country fall off what could only be described as a cliff of its own.  The Obama administration has sent the nation plummeting into a sea of anti-business, anti-growth red tape over the last few years, but even as the economy struggles to regain any traction, the White House is intending to accelerate the rate of descent.Welcome to the 'regulatory cliff'.

Wasting Time in Springfield

In the face of $9 billion in unpaid bills, the Illinois legislature has found time in 2012 for an amazing amount of peripheral legislation to take effect in 2013.For instance, after Jan. 1, 2013, it will be illegal in Illinois to possess, sell, trade, or distribute a shark fin.

First Round of the ObamaCare Exchange Battle Goes to the States

Today is an important day - we're one giant step closer to reversing the government takeover of our health care.The deadline for states to begin setting up their own, state-run health care exchange under ObamaCare was today, December 14th. This deadline was a crucial trial for ObamaCare, and the verdict is in -- 26 states, a majority of the union, are currently declining to set up an exchange.Below is a map of how each state stands on the exchanges:

Why States Should Run From PPACA

States should not implement health insurance exchanges as defined by Obamacare. There is no fiscal advantage to doing so. An exchange will not improve life for a state's citizens, and there is great risk of political liability for officials responsible for an exchange.

New EPA Mandated Ethanol Fuel Harms Vehicles

ObamaCare Exchange Insurance Fees: The "Affordable Care Act" Becomes Even More Unaffordable

With 23 states (so far) refusing to set up health care exchanges to implement ObamaCare, the federal government is being forced to implement its own exchanges in these states instead.  Since the ObamaCare law did not provide any funding to do this, observers have been wondering - "how are they going to pay for these exchanges?"Unsurprisingly, the answer is - wait for it - another new tax!
