Boehner Says Obama Being Disingenuous on Regulatory Burdens

House Speaker John Boehner says President Obama’s public effort to curb government regulations belies reality, with 219 pending new rules poised to add billions in costs for American businesses and potentially hurt the creation of jobs.

In a letter to Obama, Boehner called on the administration to disclose a list of all planned rules that are estimated to cost businesses more than $1 billion each.

“This information is of great relevance to the American people, who face so much uncertainty about these new regulatory costs,” Boehner wrote, “and to the Congress, where we continue to aim to work with you in relieving unnecessary burdens and helping employers move forward to create jobs.”
