Previous Administration Meddled in Americans Livelihood, went too Far in Regulation; Sec. of EPA, Scott Pruitt

LISTEN NOW! Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM! When we look back at the 8 years of our previous Administration, many believe that the Obama Administration was far too involved in the affairs of the nation. One of the Administration’s advisors was Cass Sunstein. Sunstein was the author of Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness. According to Sunstein, “once we know that people are human and have some Homer Simpson in them then there’s a lot that can be done to manipulate them.” It is a scary thought to know that those in leadership are looking to manipulate the people of America.

During the Obama Administration, America witnessed a flurry of regulations being written. The good news is that those days are now over. As Scott Pruitt has now taken office of the EPA in the Trump Administration, we are seeing a much different approach. When speaking to CBN News, Pruitt shared his take on the Obama Administration. “Actions taken by the Executive Branch really were actions that the Legislative Branch should have been taking or addressing. And it did what, it impacted liberty.” When looking at the Obama Administration’s take on the coal industry, Pruitt asks this applicable question. “Where did Congress empower the EPA to declare war on coal?”

Pruitt understands that the previous way the EPA was used by former Administrations is not the way that it was designed to be. “There’s a role for the EPA. There is a very important role for the agency. The problem is, the last several years, that role has been morphed and evolved into something that it’s not.”
While the Obama Administration created regulations compiling the total number of Federal Regulations near 185,000 , the Trump Administration has cut regulations to take us back to the 1960’s level of approximately 20,000. When there was a “war on coal” during the Obama Administration, President Trump brought that to a screeching halt.
