Ryan Unveils Plan to Roll Back Obama-Era Regulations

By ANDREW TAYLOR, ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON Jun 14, 2016, 4:00 PM ET

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday unveiled the third installment of his "agenda project" with a sweeping 57-page plan to roll back regulations on energy and the environment, labor issues and the financial services industry.

"The bureaucracy is not listening to the American people, and as a result less jobs, less businesses, less prosperity, lower wages," Ryan said at an event in front of Labor Department headquarters. "We can improve the economy by making sure the regulators respect the people they're supposed to regulate. That is not what's happening."

The plan commissioned by a task force named by Ryan, R-Wis., is largely a repackaging of GOP agenda items that have failed to advance through the Senate and have often been met with veto threats by President Barack Obama.

"The latest plank of House Republicans' Wrong Way agenda is nothing more than a wish list for polluters, unscrupulous financial advisers and Wall Street. It will do nothing to create jobs in our country," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. "This special interest Republican agenda would poison the air we breathe and the water we drink, while rolling back critical protections for American consumers and taking the cops off the Wall Street beat."

2. What are regulators for?

Ryan: "We can improve the economy by making sure the regulators respect the people they're supposed to regulate."

No Ryan, regulators are supposed to NOT respect polluters and other law breakers. They are supposed to REGULATE them.
