Barrasso: Obama Creates More Red Tape Than He Cuts

By Greg McDonald   |   Thursday, 25 Aug 2011 12:16 PM

Sen. John Barrasso says the Obama administration is steadily creating more “red tape” than it’s cutting in its new list of regulatory reform recommendations, which he calls “a plan for publicity – not a plan for growth.”
 
The Wyoming Republican, who is vice chairman of the Republican Conference, said in a statement reacting to the reform plan that “cutting $10 billion in regulatory costs over five years is a drop in the bucket. In July alone, the Administration proposed over $9.5 billion in new regulatory costs.”
 
He sited as an example a recommendation in the plan that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) trims $1.5 billion in regulatory costs. That recommendation, he said, would be offset by a new EPA proposed rule on energy exploration that was released Tuesday.
 
“If President Obama really wants to reduce the burden on America’s job creators, he’ll take a hard look at his own policies. He should face the reality of his red tape instead of simply looking in the regulatory rear view mirror,” Barrasso said.
