No one person should have too much power, even the President of the United States. That was one of the problems with FDR in the 30s and 40s is that he stretched the authority of the office about as far as he could without it snapping. It was just that nobody really wanted to try him.
With Joe Biden, we have the issue where it seems that he is going to try and go on a spree like the one FDR went on.
He is definitely someone that we need to keep a sharp eye on because with him basically having Congress at his disposal now, he can do pretty much whatever he wants…all at our expense..
Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fl) and twenty-four Republicans in Congress have introduced a new version of the REINS (Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny) Act to re-assert Congress’ authority and prevent further illegal executive overreach and abuse of power by the Biden–Harris regime.
The Senate version of the bill was originally sponsored by Senator Rand Paul two months ago according to Epoch Times.
The House Republicans have written that a major rule or federal regulation that affects the economy in an amount of $100 Million or more, which affects things like consumer costs or raising prices would fall under the REINS act. As the Biden-Harris regime has run hell-bent toward reversing any and all Trump-Era regulations without a thought to the potential consequences, they feel it is necessary to restrain the Whitehouse from causing further harm.
Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks spoke in support of the bill and praised Congresswoman Cammack.
“ADVOCATES OF LIMITED AND ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT THANK REP. CAMMACK FOR HER LEADERSHIP IN INTRODUCING THE REINS ACT. OVERSIGHT OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH IS ONE OF THE MOST SERIOUS WAYS THAT CONGRESS MUST REASSERT ITS CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY,” SAID ADAM BRANDON, PRESIDENT OF FREEDOMWORKS. “ARTICLE I, SECTION 8 OF THE CONSTITUTION VESTS CONGRESS WITH THE EXPLICIT POWER TO ‘MAKE ALL LAWS,’ YET OVER TIME, CONGRESS HAS CEDED THIS AUTHORITY OVERWHELMINGLY TO A UNILATERALLY-ACTING EXECUTIVE BRANCH. THIS ONLY THREATENS TO BECOME A LARGER PROBLEM AS PRESIDENT BIDEN’S REGULATORY AGENDA LOOMS OVER OUR NATION, AND LEADERS IN CONGRESS ARE NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER TO HOLD UNELECTED BUREAUCRACY ACCOUNTABLE.”
According to Congresswoman Cammack’s site the bill’s cosponsors read like a list of Republicans to support in 2022.
