Energy – Energy serves our economy as food serves our bodies. We buy the most expensive food. Why? The political reality is that radical environmentalists always vote for Democrats because Democrats appoint judges and bureaucrats that make energy expensive. As a matter of routine, America adds astronomical costs to our efforts to produce domestic energy. And accordingly, America forces itself to EXPORT all the economic benefits and wealth creation that comes with domestic energy production. The rest of the world laughs at us because this ridiculous process has led to a lower living standards and more joblessness in America for decades.
Regulations – We have mountains of new laws and rules on the books since President Obama took office. For decades Congress has passed a plethora of new laws for businesses to bear the burden of following. Obamacare and the Dodd-Frank are the latest examples new costs. Rarely are any old archaic rules reformed or repealed.
