GOP: too many rules stifle job creation

gop GOP: too many rules stifle job creation

Republicans say President Barack Obama’s recovery summer has failed to materialize and it’s time to do something different.

In the weekly GOP radio and Internet address, Kentucky Rep. Geoff Davis says it’s time to “rein in the red tape factory in Washington.  Davis noted that unemployment has been above nine percent for 16 consecutive months. Asking “where are the jobs?” Davis says Obama’s Recovery Summer “was nothing more than a meaningless slogan.”

Davis says employers are afraid to invest in the economy because they don’t know what the “next set of rules, regulations, mandates, and tax hikes will look like.” Davis is proposing that Congress be required to take an up-or-down vote on every new major rule. He says the bill “would serve as a much-needed restraining order against unelected busybodies and bureaucrats.”
