One of the proposals, by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, would ensure that required hazard labels and classifications in the United States are the same as those used in other nations, which could save companies $585 million a year.


washington post

Smart. This is the type of waste that needs to be eliminated.
This is a good way to meet in the middle, without raising taxes and angering the companies, but not increasing government spending.


The departments of Commerce and State will undertake steps to make it easier for U.S. companies to export products.


This has been a focus of the Obama Adinistration from the beginning. It is import for the US economy to start increasing exports. Instead of focusing on spending.
Considering the news from the housing market lately, let us hope this has the intended effect.

I would also like to see this done internally, how to reduce waste within the government on all levels, by precisely these same measures.

Nothing like a good political campaign to use as a catalyst to actually accomplish something that is long overdue. Our system is so full of regulatory redundancy and the bureaucracy that accompanies it will make your head spin. Time to trim the excess fat once and for all.


Another, by the Environmental Protection Agency, would eliminate the requirement that states install a system to protect against fuel polluting the air at gas stations, since modern vehicles already have these systems. That would save up to $67 million a year.


These are indeed baby steps but steps nonetheless. Just beware of hidden cookies in these proposals. THere are 30 plans on the table. Let's hope something actually sticks!!

Scale back regulations BS.

They will scale back the enforcement of regulations until the economy improves then they will throw the book at the companies in fines and punishment.

De regulating laws for example is what is pratially responsable for this whole corporate mess were in* they got greedier and een more money hungry, reuslting in lay offs which led to abandoned citys, homes, neighborhoods and outsourcing of jobs overseas. thiers should always be regualtions. thats what keeps everything in line*
$585 million? to simply put a hazard caution and some printed info? what kind of products are they talking about? food or chemicals? thats like putting a skull with bones on a can of spam meat* lol or on mr.clean ( past labels have said warning.the product contains a chemical known too the state of CA to cause cancer and reproductive harm) which they dont print anymore. as far as ive learned and seen..whats left to de regulate? an entirely open door for more harmful products to flood the aminstream market? of course, if yuor dumb enough to use a product with skull n bones on it, a red or orange triangle for anything else than what its intended purpose was for, is the individuals own stupidty too.

Obama is not scaling back regulations on anything.

His financiers were Unions and they want their money supply secured....more regulation to protect their jobs.

Don't you remember Obama wants to create a Federal Police Force the size of our entire Armed Forces?

You have any basis for this?

This is the kind of thinking the government has needed for a long time. I am embracing it for all it is worth, whatever that may be.

Not only does this eliminate needless work for corporations, it also means slightly less regulation on the government's end.

How does Obama focus on exports when Obama favorites like GM open plants in Mexico? How does Obama focus on exports when GE can ship jobs to China making poisonous light bulbs that Americans will be required to buy?

The only thing Obama is doing is exporting jobs for the purpose of importing profits for his friends.

If Obama told GM that they couldn't open a plant in Mexico, you all would be on here screaming that he is taking over the auto industry. Oh wait....

Encouraging, and forcing, are two different things.

And the bulb law was enacted in 2007 by Congress. Can't pin everything on POTUS.

No ,Sean Hannity would be screaming about that, not me. Stereotyping opposition is a sign of a weak argument.

The 2007 Congress was a democrat Congress, and Obama was a democrat senator in that democrat Congress. Bush was a lame duck President with no power but is a big globalist himself.

So yes I can pin things on the POTUS.
