I'm not sure I would go quite that far... if there's a regulation on, say, the maximum weight for a regulation buggy whip, I think we could just toss that one.
But your reasoning is not that bad. So what would you do to make sure more regulations were being approved while, and almost as fast as, old ones are removed? You know, just to get a handle on things? Maybe a freeze on new regulations? Nah, one might actually be needed... oh, here's an idea! The only way to get a new regulation is to remove two... oh, wait...
That's your problem, Krazy. In your rush to impugn, you overlook the obvious. Not a single regulation is being removed under this, unless a new one is introduced. It's just a quick way to stop the leak before we fix the roof.
And finally, there is nothing in that Executive Order that specifies which regulations have to be dropped. That's up to the individual agencies that want to implement a new Federal regulation. Can you imagine the political fallout if the EPA decided to impose a new regulation on carbon dioxide by removing the ones on sulfur content and particulates?
I haven't heard anything about this EO being temporary.
Trump's plan is too haphazard and ripe for abuse.
So you don't see any problems with an agency self-regulating to get rid of the chafe?
