Breitbart discusses the Obama administration’s record breaking regulatory year with Wayne Crews. 

Obama shattered his old record with the November 17 release, according to a report by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Thursday’s release brought Obama’s 2016 total to 81,640 pages of regulations. In 2010, Obama executed 81,405 pages of regulations for the year. Thus far in 2016 he has already surpassed that by 235 pages.

“No one knows what the future holds, but at a pace of well over 1,000 pages weekly, the Federal Register could easily top 90,000 pages this year. The simple algebra says that at the current pace we’ll add 11,190 pages over the next 44 days, to end 2016 at around 92,830 pages,” CEI’s Clyde Wayne Crews said in its report.

The Obama years represent seven of the ten highest tallies for regulations, with President George W. Bush taking the other three spots. Indeed, the top four numbers of regulations all belong to Obama.

“The new president-elect Donald Trump could take a page from President Reagan, who brought page counts down from Carter’s 73,258 to as low as 44,812,” CEI noted.

“We don’t need a pen and phone, we need a meat axe,” Crews joked.
