Freedom Caucus wish list: policy areas conservatives want Trump to roll back

The rightwing group suggested 228 regulations for the president-
elect to revoke to undo Obama’s legacy in climate change, net
neutrality and workers’ rights

Donald Trump will face immediate pressure when he takes office in January to implement a variety of conservative policy proposals designed to erase much of President Obama’s legacy.

The most ardent conservatives on Capitol Hill hope Trump’s anti-establishment attitude could be a signal that the president-elect will carry forth their agenda to roll back the modern regulatory state.

In particular, the Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives – who have long been thorns in the side of Republican leadership in that chamber – will push Trump to move swiftly to enact much of their agenda.

The president-elect has already announced that he will nominate one of the Freedom Caucus’s founders, Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, to become head of the Office of Management and Budget, where he can oversee federal spending.

The Freedom Caucus came out with an extended wish list, detailing 228 regulations and executive orders that they would like to see Trump revoke immediately upon taking office in January. These are five of the policy areas that would immediately be affected.
