Cut government regulations and bureaucracy

Too many in the House, the Senate and the White House do not want to analyze the regulations they and their predecessors have written into law and make the tough decisions - STOP doing what doesn't work and wastes money, STOP doing frivolous things that causes businesses to raise the cost of business and stops them from expanding and hiring more people, STOP doing things that causes needless paperwork and time-consuming ...more »
