Republican in the House passed a new bill yesterday that would allow Trump to wipe Obama from the history books in one pass.
The Midnight Rule Relief Act will amend the previous law, the Congressional Review Act and will allow lawmakers to cut through the red tape and overturn Obama’s scandalous midnight hour executive actions all at once.
Freedom Partners, a D.C.-based non-profit, said the bill:
“The Obama regulatory agenda is like economic quicksand for American businesses and workers; the more they try to get ahead, the harder this administration works to pull them back down. Freedom Partners strongly supports these positive first steps to put important checks on government overreach and give appropriate scrutiny to regulations that threaten further damage to our economy. Americans called for an end to business as usual last November — Congress shouldn’t waste any time delivering on that promise.”
Couldn’t agree more. They continued showing how powerful a weapon this will be for Trump to use against Obama’s legacy saying,
“The Midnight Rule Relief Act would allow Congress to disapprove of multiple so-called midnight rules, regulations finalized in the waning days of the administration—using a single Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution, as opposed to disapproving of these rules individually.”
