The Washington Free Beacon discusses Obama’s regulatory record breaking year with Wayne Crews. 

Obama broke his previous 2010 record of 81,405 pages worth of rules and regulations published by the Register, the in-house journal, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

With 26 working days still left in the year, Obama outdid his prior record by 235 pages, the Washington Examiner reported.

“It is remarkable enough that the all-time record has been passed before Thanksgiving,” Crews noted.
