Hear Harriet’s view of the “The New Era of Regulations“.
Harriet Hageman has given many speeches on “Regulation Without Representation,” concerning the incessant flood of regulations being produced by unelected federal bureaucrats and their effect on U.S. industries. Ms. Hageman states that she is not against the federal government, but is “anti-bad, wasteful government that is taking our liberties.”
The burden of federal regulations in the United States now reaches almost $2 trillion annually. The financial drain, however, is only one aspect of the problem. The real crisis relates to the fact that nameless, faceless bureaucrats are writing and enforcing the laws in this country, with 30 regulations being adopted for every properly passed statutory provision. This approach clearly violates a basic tenant of our Constitutional framework – found in the separation of powers between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches – and is ripe for abuse. Harriet Hageman will be giving an overview of the regulatory overreach of the last administration and describing those efforts of President Trump and his team to “right this ship” by rolling back unnecessary regulatory burdens.
