The GOP is preparing to mount a full-scale assault on President Obama’s regulatory agenda, using the party’s strengthened hand in Congress to delay, soften or block contentious administration rules at every turn.
As long as Obama sits atop the executive branch, Republicans’ power to derail scores of rulemaking efforts now under way is limited. But control of both the House and Senate in the next Congress will enable GOP lawmakers to ratchet up their attacks on what they view as overzealous regulation.
“So long as we have this president the federal agencies can go around Congress," said Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) "But we can make it very, very difficult for them."

I've read a little about this and am wondering what the regulations are. The couple articles I saw just complained about the regulations but never mentioned what they were.

They seem to put these small ones in so it looks like they are accomplishing things then slam on these while leaving the big problems slide by.
Both "sides" love big government, or they wouldn't be in it. In my opinion
