So, here is what we can be excited about:
“President-elect Trump has promised to repeal two federal regulations for every new one issued, and the Congressional Review Act, which Reid co-sponsored in 1996, will give him a running start.
“The law gives Congress the power to rescind any unwelcome late, so-called “midnight” regulations from an outgoing president through a simple majority vote in both chambers of Congress.
“Since its passage as part of House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America in 1996, it has only been successfully used once, but Republicans are promising to leverage its full power in January to kill rules the Obama administration has issued in its last months in office.”
The lefties are going to go wild on this. As this act provides, the legislation acknowledges Obama’s rules which cannot be cannot be filibustered. Because of this, the entire matter can be solved with dispatch, rarely seen in D.C.
Mr. Reid meddled in this change:
“Most Democrats understood the reasons behind Reid’s decision in 2013 to go “nuclear” and change Senate rules to end the minority party’s ability to filibuster presidential nominations for all but the Supreme Court. Democrats were tired of Republicans blocking Obama’s appointments to the lower courts and were willing to risk the turn-about that comes now that they have no power to block most of Trump’s nominations.”
And these words should make you happy: “They [Democrats] have no power to block most of Trump’s nominations.”
