    Not many know this, but apparently some legislation was passed by Congress that required the Executive Branch to bring any new regulations implemented to the attention of Congress. Those that were not under Obama, can be invalidated. Not only that, they cannot be passed again.

    They are finding many, many, regulations that the Obama administration did not bring to the attention of Congress, either due to incompetence or simply spite.

    Or it could be he knew republicans are asssholes and would block anything he tried to pass. Of course if O was republican, he would have been a saint.

    Any evidence to support that last assertion (certainly there is nothing in the article you gave supporting it)?

    And it wasn't any "new regulation" but only those regulations with an economic effect of greater than $100 million.

    No, I heard it from a friend of mine but will try to find another article about it.

    Not much press about it right now though.
