As Written By Bruce Bialosky for Townhall:

Many people do not understand the inability of the Republicans to accomplish more in Washington. They can certainly put a stall on many of President Obama’s appointments, especially judges who will outlast this president’s term, but the president has too much power. If we look forward to the next president, who will be a Republican — short of a fit of stupidity — that person will have a lot to do and it is clear what their second task will be.

The obvious first task is to review all of Mr. Obama’s executive orders, many of which are lawless, and cancel or reverse them. That is so obvious that it is not a consideration for the first duty. Thus, the first job of the new president must be to propose a comprehensive plan to get us out of these financial doldrums and move our economy forward. Then they should start to dismantle all these agencies being used by Obama to grow government and kill off the private sector. One and two go hand-in-hand because we will never totally unleash this economy without accomplishing both.

Many of these entities go back to the 1930s. They were brought in by Roosevelt (FDR) and never dismantled despite being anachronistic. There have been many entities which added to the alphabet soup of the federal government (SEC, FCC, FTC etc.) since then, with or without Republican complicity. The EPA was fashioned under Nixon but the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) was handed to us by Obama. They are mostly agencies in search of a raison d’etre.

In the hands of President Obama, these agencies have been stacked with left-wing government wonks seeking to further his goals because he could never get Congress to further expand the massive government. A perfect example of accomplishing this mission is the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), established by the National Labor Relations Act of 1935. In addition to lawlessly making recess appointments to the Board and having them overturned by the Supreme Court, the activities of the Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon were invalidated by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Get the idea about how much Mr. Obama wanted this agency to do his bidding?
