Oh i do like it when people go up against obama! it is about time it started going somewhere!

Not everything that can be ordered with a pen and a phone can necessarily be undone with a pen and a phone, especially when it comes to regulations. That’s why Barack Obama figured that part of his legacy would be safe. Unfortunately for him, he thought wrong.

A little-used piece of legislation enacted under the Republican congresses of the 1990s is set to undo wide swaths of Barack Obama’s legacy of executive actions, including regulations on corporate taxes, carbon emissions and overtime pay.

The Congressional Review Act, passed in 1996, was an obscure part of Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America.” It allows for a systematic review of almost any executive order or agency regulation.
