President Trump has saved taxpayers more than $86 billion in regulatory costs during his first three months in the White House, according to a new study from a conservative group.

The American Action Forum (AAF) points to several Obama-era regulations that Trump has either rolled back on his own or with the help of Republican lawmakers using the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

This includes the Education Department?s school accountability standards, the Environmental Protection Agency?s waters of the United States rule and the so-called ?blacklisting? rule for government contractors.

These are just a few examples mentioned in the report. Since taking office, Trump and Congress have repealed 13 rules with the CRA. The CRA allows lawmakers to overturn rules they disapprove of with a simple majority in Congress, and send the action to the president for his signature.

Now let's discuss the dire ramifications of all this. Not that you would concern yourself with the education of children, the viability of drinking water, or if the government is using shoddy contractors.

Funny how education has gotten worse since the DOE was established in the late 70's.

Does the Department of Education teach our kids or something?

Looks like they may have tried to teach Joey/Judy.

LMFAO

Nope, but they do have influence by withholding federal funds if you do not abide by some of their nonsense.

Judy was saying that there would be dire ramifications because of the cuts to DOE.

I think they should do away with all the DOE. Give the power back to the state and school districts. I think citizens should have a say in how their tax dollars are spent. 

fuzz81 --- 210 days ago -

That would defeat the purpose of taxation.

Totally agree DoE has been a failure.

He has to save where he can so we can afford his lifestyle...

I didn't see any news about changes in the tax rate.

I used to hate this kind of "declared victory" "implied savings" stuff back when I was a boss.

Folks would come up with some program, or idea, or project that was going to print money - they sold it to me or more senior mgt, would declare it a success well before there were any measurable results, ask for a big bonus.

And when the measurables came in - with no significant change - we would always get the same basic answer with various degrees of creativity - "it would have been much worse if we didn't (fill in the blank)

When my tax bill goes down, I will give president trump credit - It hasn't yet.

He can afford his lifestyle just fine.

Even when he gives his salary away.

Fine - just don't take credit for it - until it has happened.

Kinda like celebrating an election victory before the election even happens?

Doesnt matter if he gives his salary away or not, you're still paying for his lifestyle...like it or not.


Now be a hypocrite and say it doesnt matter how much golf he plays...lol

Who said anything about playing golf?

The Trump presidency is really keeping your panties in a twist.

Nothing you say will ever change their minds but who cares what they think?

You and the rest of the Trump triggered snowflakes make it obvious on a daily basis.

How about when your job is saved because the company no longer has to fund compliance with duplicate and useless regulations. 

the Markster --- 210 days ago -

compliance with duplicate and useless regulations.

Of course not. They only think negatively. I would hate to be around them all day. It must be depressing.

It's been this way with these liberal minded folks since early November 2016.

Wonder what happened then?
