Ever since, President Obama stepped into office, Republicans have been waiting to undo his regulations. So hours after Donald Trump was elected president, Republican Sen. Rand Paul promised it’s coming in the first month of the new Congress.
“I have a prediction to make this morning,” he said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “I think we’re going to spend the first month passing the repeal of Obama regulations.”
He adde he was “excited” to see it through.
According to a write up in the Washington Post, Paul thought Republicans would “repeal a half dozen or so of regulations that are killing jobs and making us less competitive with the rest of the world.”
