Destroy them! It is shameful that we have a Republican House who can stop this regulatory nightmare with a little known law, that is rarely used called the Congressional Review Act This Should Have Been Used Every Day Since January 2011, To Kill The Burdens Of A Socialist Government On Its People
So some congressional Republicans are looking to revive the often-ignored law known as the Congressional Review Act. Sometimes called a “legislative veto,” the act could help fast-track efforts to kill Obama administration regulations by clearing procedural hurdles in the Senate. Just 30 senators can force a vote and send regulations back to the president under the CRA.
It also requires Congress to move quickly once a regulation is finalized, so old regulations can’t be repealed. The CRA “is not perfect, but it’s what we have,” said Rep. John Carter, R-Texas, who has introduced eight resolutions to negate regulations this year and is pushing colleagues — who he says are largely unaware of the tool — to do the same.
Carter, the House Republican Conference secretary, hosted a session of 70 Capitol Hill staffers Wednesday to teach them how to use the measure.
Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., is leading a similar Senate effort. He acknowledges there’s a good chance President Obama will simply veto attempts to overturn his administration’s rules, but he says Republicans can still use the tool to shape the debate.
“Any way we can get it to the president’s desk,” Barrasso said. “He talks a pretty good game. His rhetoric is good, but the reality is he’s coming out with hundreds of new regulations every month.”
When the Congressmen we sent in November of 2010 do not send bill after bill after bill to Obama to set the debate and let Americans know how twisted Washington is, they deny We The People liberty and allow non-elected officials in the National Labor Relations Board to do this Kill The Job Creators
On Wednesday, the public comment period will be closing on a Department of Labor proposal that the majority of America knows nothing about and even fewer understand.
If enacted as drafted, the union cronies within the Department of Labor will require every private-sector employer and service provider (whether or not they ever talk directly to employees) to file financial statements with the Obama Labor Department if the service provider’s services indirectly affect employees’ choice to unionize or not.
Unless you act by commenting here, this rule change will likely take affect. [See link to and sample comment below.]
Once the financial information—which includes the service provider’s entire company (or firm’s) receipts (even from other clients)—are submitted, it will become public information. It will then be published on the Department of Labor’s website and available to union bosses. What’s more, willful failure to file the financial information is a criminal violation, punishable by either imprisonment, a fine, or both.
In June, when the Department of Labor, at the behest of union bosses, issued a 160-page proposal to expand the interpretation of “advice” under a little-known law called the Labor-Management Reporting & Disclosure Act, few understood just how deeply the DOL’s proposed rule change could affect employers and consultants of all stripes–not just those involved in labor relations. Most still don’t understand it.
In addition to companies who hire attorneys to assist them with union issues, the Department of Labor’s broad expansion into areas that most would not consider remotely connected to unions, but because it could indirectly affect [read deter] employees’ choice to unionize, the Department of Labor will likely call this “persuader activity.”
I not only encourage you to go make a comment, I encourage you to contact your Congressperson and Senators as well. This give a way to unions who have broken the back of the American employee so the leaders have political influence, can no longer stand. It is either them or this Country, you decide!
