But we said at the time that it should be up the banks but now we're you know the the trump administration went the other direction and said and said you can. You can't will you can't you.

If the biden administrators were so inclined could make that you know toward its favorite in industries in direct banks toward you know say say say green energy company or shorts. let's take.

He's a senior fellow at the of in banking and finance at the competitive enterprise institute. And we're talking about a new regulation that's come out from the office of the comptroller of the currency having to do with how banks make loans to businesses and this this regulation kind of goes to the other extreme from what operation chokepoint did back in the the twenty twelve and thereabouts. And this one says you have to listen to everybody and there's always the threat of time if you don't do it. Did people were any institutions. Find during operation chokepoint. John do you know or were. They did they. Just kinda quake in fear not lend to those institutions. Not that i know they kind of quake in fear because if they said you know your regulator. We'll go we'll go after you in a bank exam so i don't know i don't know that would be a direct fine. It just might. They may have been rated poorly in bank exams. If they had went lent to these industry learn when it wouldn't have been direct. But that's the thing. Even you know the government we are opposed to the government telling people who they you if it's illegal industry who they can and can't land. Were also for for anything that we think you know. We've been supportive of a bipartisan bill. The safe banking act that would ma- would lift barriers or clarify the law so that banks could land to marijuana businesses in in states where it's legal at the same time we don't think the government should you know should force should force lending to certain businesses. There there have been you know banks no responding. The campaigns As as far as as far as you know of you know from gun control group from climate groups not to lend to boil pipelines or more firearms manufacture and that should not be a part of the lending picture. shouldn't it should be the financial stability and viability of those companies insured being. We disagree with the campaigns but at the same time we don't did the government should you know should force should force them either. Because how wanting how do you know whether it's you know in kansas political of a bank tickets the bad business risks. I if you get into you know if you get into start you know. It's the government sort of micromanaging lending decisions and you could really put the banks and then the economy end their depositors consumers at at risk if you if you say they have to they.

We've been talking about vaccines for 67 months already and to set the mechanisms up S O West Virginia set those mechanisms off because it's relying on the private entities that we normally rely on. And that's what we should do. But you can't now have governments scramble and say we're going to set up Mass vaccination facilities when we didn't have them set up before, if they haven't done that, they should step aside and let the private entities that routinely do this take carry the ball forward.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in Annapolis, the Environmental Protection Agency. The federal level has finalized a rule to give greater weight to public health studies, which disclosed raw data when writing regulations. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler's says the goal is to make sure the data used for the regulations can be independently verified by other scientists. Nearly all of the criticism of the rules are essentially the same that the new rule would somehow weaken the science conforming FDA. His actions This claim is a strange one and one that is being repeated by people who have clearly not read the rule for themselves. I recommend that people read the rule before allowing the interpretation of others. B roll ups can secure independent validation of results and still protect confidential and personal information. With this new rule will do. Undoubtably is provide the pitch parents he needed. So allow the public the opportunity to check our work. Transparency is a defense off, not an attack on important work done by our career sciences here in EPA, along with their colleagues, research institutions around the country. Restrict scientific inquiry would violate everything this agency has done over the past 50 years to improve human health and the environment. We believe this new rule will support the best science and strengthen the legal defense of our room. Indians. Opponents of this rule have made unsubstantiated claims against it. And thats misrepresented its effect. Which makes me wonder what their motive is.

"Welcome to the show In Murray. He's a competitive Enterprise institute vice president. He's an expert on socialism. It's quite an allure, Socialism does and Scott consequences. And it seems to be really popular with our young people today. Despite its in my observation is horrible, life shattering consequences around the globe. Of those same negatives will affect our military in many, many ways, which is why I really asked in to come and share about the consequences of socialism. So welcome aboard, Ian. Thank you for joining us. It's great to be with you today. Then police start by sharing the background and purpose of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and then your background. The Competitive Enterprise Institute was founded in 1984 to focus on a growing issue that are found a friend Smith had identified which was the growth off the administrative state, the fourth branch of government not authorized by the Constitution, but authorized by the quarter or a series of decisions. Which is in many ways, insulated from the checks and balances that the founders put in place. And so we focus very much on that administrative state, the regulatory agencies on DH the rules and regulations that they prescribe that Ah affect so many of our lives. I actually am a former bureaucrat who I was I worked in the British civil service in the 19 nineties, I helped privatizing British rail system I privatized myself out of a job which is name of me to come over here. Tio married the love of my life. And I bean over here in the United States since 1997 on by used to describe myself as a refugee, Angie from socialism. I'm not so sure that this is the on cleave free from socialism that I came to back in the 19 nineties. Wow. I wish what you just said was purely funny. It is unfortunately too true are getting too true. And that's our purpose. Today. I've heard it said in that Both for communism and socialism, that the problem is that it's really a good program, but it's just never been properly applied. And that's why it hasn't worked in history before. I think it's something I read the you wrote so socialism gets to get out of jail free card. Because it really works. If you just do, right. Can you talk about that Police? Yeah, There's an identifiable phenomenon here. That happens every time somebody sets up the socialist state. What happens is that the side, the revolution or a new election returns. Ah, a new socialist government. The Socialist outline their plan. Everybody says over commentators around the world. Say Yes, this is it. This is really socialism here at last, The International Brotherhood of Man. Has finally arrived. And then, after a few years, we'll start to come off thanks to the inherent contradictions and socialism, But I talk about in the socialist temptation. Both happens is that The commentators and the defenders of socialism. Just turn around and say, Well, this can't be the fault of socialism. Socialism. Perfect. It's the ideal economic system. So this must be the fault of saboteurs or records or foreign agents of the CIA. That's where I think we are with Venezuela. At the moment, all the Socialists with assault will tell you that Venezuela will be doing swimmingly if it wasn't for foreign interference in the CIA. And then finally, when everything is going to heck in a hand basket when the economy is completely collapsed because of those contradictions of socialism. And in worst case in areas there may be many, many thousands dead, then exactly the same commentators who hailed the creation of really socialism turn around and say Father failed because it wasn't real socialism. And this happens time and time again. It happens in the Revolutionary states that happens in the Democratic states. Time and time again. You get people saying that that socialism that was hailed as real socialism wasn't real socialism at all. So as I say, and as you rightly noted socials and get to get out of jail free card. Every new attempt to socialism is treated as if there's a tabula rasa blank slate, And we can forget about the horrors of the past because those are irrelevant because they weren't real socialism. And that's something that we have to challenge every time you hear it. Yes, sir. Everything I have read. It is true. I'm of the opinion that there is on Ly one really functional socialist state in the world today and that's communist China. I don't really want to live there. Is that a fair statement? Well, even China has been toying with liberalization and free markets over the past two decades. We've recently seen a retreat from that towards what I think is a strange hybrid of socialism and fascism, which actually aren't back different hurdle. The great economist Ludwig von Mises always said that the difference between socialism fascism was a technical triviality. And I think he's right on there and asked the residents of Hong Kong do they want to live in China? Absolutely not. They'd much rather stay in the much more liberal free markets on clay, The Hong Kong The Chinese government doesn't want to let them and that's a big and indicators you Khun! Get off exactly how good socialism is. Indeed, this is kind of dirty Guillemin frontlines of freedom were discussing socialism CEO Vice President Ian Murray. One of the things that I think people miss when they look at socialism is what it does to individual initiative. Because you lose a lot of motivation to be production in a true socialist society, right? That's very much the case..

Right if they go to number one, even if they shoot up and number one that one fact, isn't going to not going from number seventeen overall and you have to, to, to, to something more. But I mean, you know, it's it alternate that maybe it will be important if your business is one that's over-regulated that end up. You know, your manufacturer something you end up out there. Well, then it. Might be important. The thing is when it comes to freedom, as you've gotta pick the freedoms that are important to you, and find the jurisdiction that has that freedom. If you want to commiserate with libertarians about why the government sucks. New Hampshire's number one, baby. One of my favorite parts about moving here is that there's people here that you agree with. Absolutely. Yeah. The cost burdens of federal regulations, reach one point nine trillion per year. So I was looking at what that means is businesses are paying one point nine trillion dollars in regulatory compliance costs. Businesses. Don't pay anything while the customers are right that amid amounts to according to the competitive Enterprise Institute, here that amounts to a hidden tax of nearly fifteen thousand dollars per household. Wow. So that's ladies and gentlemen, the costs I'm not saying again, I'm not saying every regulation is bad. But if you're taking the I if you're taking the tack that all the regulations, we have, or the right amount of regulations, I would venture to say your ignorant of the regulatory code in the United States, your state, and the jurisdiction, you live in like you just don't know. And you're saying off think the politicians the most unaccountable group of people that the world has ever known somehow no, the right amount of regulation. That's also why this Idaho thing will be interesting because you'll find out which ones are the most important because whichever one goes in. I gets resigned as an emergency, at least politically important Suren, hopefully, hopefully, the most important overall connected is what it is. We'll see. Yeah. I love it. Good news kudos to the folks over there and blowing it in their session. Yeah, this is just a legislative mistake. Oh, sure. But look at the implication. Yeah. Much fun can be had with it all. Yeah. I don't mind them making mistakes moral I agreed. I wish they would make mistakes more often. I wish there bills were written like this all the time, Mark, you had a letter to the editor, from a police officer who's actually against quotas. Yeah. This is an anonymous letter to the editor because I'd expect to get fired if I were still at admit that they have quotas. Well, not technically. It looks on us. Yes. Very fairly as it were, if he were to actually have come out of the closet on this and been public, he probably if they couldn't fire him, they'd probably put him on desk duty or some other undesirable shift like the overnight shift or something like that to punish him for this. Right. So this is from the let's see the national motorist association. Putting this and apparently like the triple A's competitor. It sounds like that. I don't know from may the fifth of this year, Editor's Note over the years, the in them a has received occasional contact from law enforcement officers who've complained about department policies, sometimes crafted to avoid detect direct violation state anti ticketing quota laws, which force officers to write predetermine, a predetermined number of citations during each work shift. We'll talk more about it. And you can share your thoughts on police quotas..

"To excessive proportion, so at that point, I actually read willingness to say, and it turns out it's relatively calm remarkably traditions, and I came up with the basic conclusion myself in part on this studies, and then Paul on the enormous amount of material that I've read from other sources the place where I tend to go to find things is a place called the cooler heads digest, which is organized by the competitive Enterprise Institute, and it puts many things on the denier, quote, unquote side of this thing, but also links to people on the other side and the articles that are denying various claims also Lincoln, so you go through the links, I tend not to read the political articles. I try to read the science articles to figure out what's going on. And in the end, eventually I sort of came to the conclusion that two things which true one is that there's incredibly weak, call Latian between the changes in carbon dioxide levels, and the changes in temperature levels, and to that all the legal efforts to try to control carbon dioxide as a proxy for increased temperature would either be futile or counterproductive. So that puts me in the denial class, at least in the eyes of other people. I'm probably prepared to debate this with anyone on any stage at any time. Even though I'm not a scientist. I mean, lawyers actually have to learn a fair bit assigned to deal with other things, and I was involved in court cases involving things like a specimen DSM lead and so forth. And after a while what you do is. You learn how to absorb the science even though you can't do the imperial McIntyre. Nations on the one hand, let alone the laboratory work on the other. But you have to be suitably humble about what you're gonna venture into and tried to rely on fence statements that you think makes sense. So I came up with a conclusion that the social cost of carbon was negative meaning in effect at present levels with Sibel increases probably going to do more good to the world, then it's going to do harm. That's the position that will happen takes. That's what gets him condemned. As eccentric bizarre deny all the rest of the words are much much, more harsh, Richard. You're being generous to I'm probably opponents, hamper is regarded by vox, which itself is not the onion. But by vox as bizarre, backward views about climate science, the New York Times brands him as climate denial is and that language, Richard. I've objected to it since it first appeared several years past that is present prejudicial language. They know it and they enjoy it. They're doing it. Because they want to say that this is just like the whole the cost to blind. We're not blind at all. Then you'll calls them out on this. They say this man is disqualified because he actually said you find to treat carbon dioxide the way the Nasi street at the poor Jews. Correct. I don't know whether you should or should not have said that. But the point is really quit. This thing is treated as cyclone in the eyes of many people, even though it turns out at certain levels. It's essential for life. And the question is to wear it turns I becomes more responsible than not is hard. I did speak to will about that. And asked him what his views were. And he gave me two facts on this thing, which I will repeat now one he says if you look at farmers and walk rose and so forth in greenhouses. They tend to inject carbon dioxide up to a levels about one thousand parts per million or two and a half time. Roughly speaking what we have today, and it tends to produce Stanford growth, if you go back, you could find issues of the scientific American from nineteen twenty which so exactly the same thing. They show one kind of follow in a carbon dioxide deprive environment..

"More because he's just that kinda guy. Christopher Dorner senior fellow at the competitive Enterprise Institute, and author of the politically incorrect guide to global warming and environmentalism Chris Horner, you must live for days like this. Christmas day. Impotent. Is it true that just just looking at the rough, you know? The handwritten notes of this thing in the margins. They're calling for things like upgrading every single building in the continental United States. Right. Mandates. There's of course, there's nothing that the state can mandate you do destroy install. By that doesn't create jobs, but that will be the argument already is create jobs, but it's awfully intrusive. Every building. We're going to make airline travel on necessary. I'm eager to see if any Hawaii members have decided to move economy toward rail transport. Wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait. This thing. Calls to make to get everyone off of no more airplanes is their plan. That's what the lead sponsor has said, it's going to make air travel unnecessary. I don't think she's thought this through the transatlantic line, for example. Anyway, details to be resolved as you could tell reading the frequently asked questions as well as the legislation itself, which lays out in the end. I mean, there's a lot of. An ringing so on. And then it gets down to the point of this this Bill, which is. Demand or an assertion that it is the federal government's responsibility to ensure and then it goes. Clean air clean water cetera, which we actually have laws for that. Yeah. But then it moves onto the whole social Justice, aggressive, progressive agenda. So that's one of the tells this is just. Remember, it's not about the climate. Nobody claims what the temperature would be afterwards is that it would be different it won't impact the climate. There's not actually an argument about that. It's the issue isn't the issue. This is just the issue that has captivated generations the individual who has introduced it. Meanwhile, more seasoned members as reported by even the Washington Post have pleaded with nature. People see within days of the November election don't subject us to any cap and trade style boats because of what happened last time. So this should be good. So the so the establishment Democrats mainstream Democrats, the Democrats who aren't quite as nutty as the this new caucus that wants to make us Venezuela on this side of the equator, they're saying, oh my God. We're we're we're we're we're not we're going to have the majority for two years. We're done. They they see exactly what this does. That's again. It's it's the headline is something about sixteen. Democrats meet with Pelosi. It. It said Jim Himes of Connecticut, warned her don't you hang us after drying, any of these cap and trade style votes, which you remember these bills cost jobs the jobs for the people who voted for that. 'cause they did despite all of the public. I don't hear you sorta mythology. This clearly led to their defeat in two thousand ten after the house passed it. The Senate Democrat's pleaded with Harry Reid. You don't have to kick around anymore to not bring this up. The pleaded with the White House not bring it up, but it's still led to their losing the house majority because people don't they like to talk the talk. But if you wanna talk about. Relieving them of their their well in order to pretend we are gently ministering earth temperature while not actually claiming impact your chapter voters tend to balk at that we proved it so I think she'll get her nonbinding resolution through the house. That's for sure about the Senate. But in terms of the various schemes that they would have to adopt. That's going to be the subject of a lot of show trial type hearing. But I I don't think much legislation because of members like Mr. Himes who work in Washington last time, they tried this case you're wondering, why didn't someone think of this before they did write it didn't work out. Well, you know, I- politico is reporting that Nancy Pelosi was asked about this last night. And her response was it's going to be one of several or maybe many suggestions we receive the green dream or whatever they call it. Nobody knows what it is. But they're for it. Right. I've Nancy Pelosi's response. That's hardly a Riddick. She nailed it again. I it's the details that are going to be costly politically. So this is a this is a resolution and it, but it's a dangerous one you work getting or seeking to get the congress on record saying, it's the federal government's obligation to and it's. Enumerate the whole laundry list of demands it trails off the rails very quickly and didn't indigenous peoples in oppression and so on it's not really about the climate. But you need to remember that whenever you're talking about the climate. It's not about the climate. Right. Nothing. Proposed back the climate. And you mentioned that creek coming by Christopher Horner is our guest. He's senior fellow competitive Enterprise Institute is book is the politically incorrect guide to global warming and environmentalism, and and you sort of you basically said it talks about upgrading buildings rebuilding America's buildings in lowering carbon emissions and yadda yadda yadda, getting rid of air travel. But then it goes into all this social Justice stuff. And and it's basically a wishlist for for the socialists. And I gotta say this is one of those things I think I read it in your book that after the fall of the Berlin Wall after the fall of the iron curtain a lot of the communist turn to the green initiatives. They turned to environmentalism they saw that. This is the best way to control the central economy of a nation instead of with a tank, we do it with the economy. Yeah. That was fairly well and easily documented that they went from registering pretty quickly. And it wasn't that big a jump. Nobody's strain themselves. Just if you look at the green party agenda. It's like this because an awful lot further. There's a lot of window-dressing and talk about planetary salvation. But then it gets into this is there's a lot of noble lie about this. 'cause you're talking about harming the most vulnerable. I knew more as we know it in Europe. They don't ever tell us to look to Europe anymore, but you're gonna kill people. You can't control the world's temperature can kill millions pretending you are. And that's what this is about. And it's also fair to point out that some of the most journalist air dirtiest, water worst environment. I mean, look at Chernobyl some of the worst environmental disasters occurred on the communists, socialist side of the iron curtain not on this side. Right state is ensured a clean environment. We would have found the garden of Eden. When the wall fell, and in fact, we found something of an ecological horror story, and that is glossed over too much. So I'm glad you pointed it out, it's not a- again if this were about the environment. This would be a big mistake. But goodness, it's not an excuse for. If you read it a a litany.

"Turns out they only do cost benefit analysis for less than two dozen rules a year. Meanwhile, there are three thousand rules and regulations so win. The Trump administration has said we've cut these we've met our two for one goals for for example. Big problem with that guys is that so few rules are tabulated or quantified in the first place that it's difficulty to even get a grasp of what's really going on. So within that constraint. They've been able to say, yeah, they've cut those handful of billions of dollars, and it's not very much. I agree that that was why I mentioned in the ten thousand commandments report that it's not just the rules and regulations that are going to play. But it's also the the categories of regulation that that the administration's engage in and sometimes you can roll things back even without reducing rules. And I think that happened with the Trump change in mindset on energy regulation as we were talking about earlier and in in other areas too. He put out executive orders and guidances and notices with respect to infrastructure, for example, and so businesses in and he got he got on TV several times with that big stack of of of government rules and regulations. A piece of red tape in front of it strap stretched across the stage, but by liberalizing infrastructure permeating, for example, data loan has a huge effect on increasing economic activity. So we've got a real problem of rolling all of this regulation back is is much. It's got it's much more than what Trump is being able to do just as president. But that means we were going to have to win a we're going to have to leave it there. We a a segment, you know, the regulatory state what's going on there. What's going on with these people like Facebook and Google and Yahoo?

"To work for you. Very big welcome to you today. I'm your host Neil has very good with co host, Dr rich roughing here. Rich men, we got a Rockin show today. It's going to be really really fun. It's gonna go by really fast. We're going to talk about a lot a lot of very important topics. You know, the the crazies just keep getting crazier. I just it's amazing. I mean, the new Greenville I mean, rich what is going on with that? I mean could a Bill. The emerging a said that this thing might be for real. Well, can you imagine that? I mean, I I you don't even have to imagine just just watch television tonight that the Democrats took over the house and within about an nanosecond. They started, you know, contemplating raising taxes taking money out of your pocket. Eliminating fossil fuels more investigations against the president giving a pass to go. That's right. That happened today. Cory booker. For violating ethics rules in the committee from the cavenaugh investigation so to speak. I use word on purpose. Just it is amazing. So is it far fetched from you to think that they're going to go ahead and try and take AOC's concept. Would she didn't write could she doesn't know how to write that way? Into into a Bill. No doesn't surprise me at all. But it does bother me. And does upset me that it's just, you know, further wealth distribution, which is the the Mark of Obama well in in the whole democrat party, which is basically the socialist party of of America. I mean, I I don't know if there's any. You can't distinguish it from the from the party of just five years ago. I mean, it is gone. So so far to let them you gotta like Howard Schultz. You know, I'm not necessarily his fan or anything. But I mean, a very successful man says he's thinking about running for president, the Democrats just go ballistic on the guy, you guys, you got some of the socialist wing of the democrat party saying he should I run for for city council or something like, you know, the guy's a knucklehead, and he's got too much to learn to be in politics. Here's a very very successful guy. He's done an incredible thing with the company that that he founded or at least grew to what it is today, a Starbucks and a success seems to be a disqualifying factor to be in a democrat party today. I mean, look at Michael Bloomberg. I mean, he's never ever going to have a chance for this nomination. Well, what really concerns me is that the concept of the American dream has been turned upside down. I mean. It upsets me dramatically. I this is why am I not surprised when I was a kid in college in nineteen eighty four and a half to read brave new world in in in other stories like that where you have these apocalyptic concepts of of language and the language. We're hearing today is new speak and the Newspeak is saying with good is bad and bad is good. So we live in a very dangerous scary time. We better get control of this. Well, let's bring on our first guest, and he watches and tracks this we really got to get his thoughts. He's been with as many times before we love the guy. He does wonderful work at the competitive Enterprise Institute, very pleased to have back with his wing crews. Hey, Wayne, thanks for coming back to be with. Hey, it's my pleasure. Thank you for having me on. So so talk a little bit about the start off here with the new green deal, and what's happening with the socialist party in America today. I'm surprised that. It was interesting to hear you guys opened up the show. I'm surprised that will I guess we shouldn't be surprised that the Democratic Party has moved left, but that is trend, and there is a belief that you know, you can switch the economy rapidly to renewable energies, and that's really what underlies this along with the social programs to because remember the green new deal that you all were opening show about I I call it the green new steel because it amounts to transfer a huge transfer of power and resources from the public from individuals to federal government, which I think is.

And you know, I I don't I just don't know why, you know, look, Google all of these people Google Amazon. I mean, they become very very big political operators in, you know, they are moving this country left in in the way that they do it, you know, and they can do it behind the scenes Amazon, of course, no, not Amazon. I mean, it's a great organization that sells things, but it's owner is the owner of the Washington Post. I mean, an amazing political advocacy operation that he has going on. And of course, Google, and you know, we we know what their political stripes are don't they have incredible power in haven't they gotten. So big that you know, that that power can be used in a way that it's not intended to. They they do have a lot of power. And in fact, they have even more power that you didn't mention the internet tax is a matter of fact was upheld by the supreme court and Donald Trump never criticized the internet tax. In fact, he seemed to think of it as something that was going to hurt Amazon, but actually Hamsun with the big lobbyists because they have the Amazon associates program and so forth, and they could say, hey, we've got most of the online traffic is for sales go. So we'll just collect that tax will you so the internet tax. I agree. That's something that ended up benefiting them a lot. I've seen the the kind of dispute you're talking about the Trump calling the Washington Post the Basil's close, Jeff. And so forth. Always remember guys. And we've talked about this before. And there's you know, we're not gonna resolve it here. But every company in a free society doesn't act just on its own. It's got upstream suppliers downstream business customers, ordinary consumers, the media, Wall Street advertisers. All these forces are raid against companies that misbehave I was I was I was watching a movie the other day on Netflix with my wife. I think was called eighth grade in Baghdad said something to the kid and the car. Hey, can you send so-so message on Facebook? And the kid says nobody uses Facebook anymore. These a lot of these things are transitory. I think there's no question that they do have market power. And in what you're saying too. Is that they also have political power. I get where you're what you're where you're coming from. I'm smelling what you're stepping in. But keep in mind that the the big companies for the past like my space or there was a time. When the only searching the biggest search engine was those things change in the more companies take people off the more people turn away from him. But just related to this. What I what I think supported to keep in mind is in this administration. We've had. The best success. We've had in terms of rolling back regulations that we've seen in you could almost say ever because the numbers of rules that have rules and regulations that came out in the past two years are less than they have been since records started being kept in the seventies. When you talk about that, we all this big rollback. And it was in your piece actually that you know, what what is it? The regulatory state here is about one point five trillion dollars a year at cost our economy. I've seen all kinds of numbers, you know, roughly ten percent of our economy, and you said in twenty eighteen the rollback was about twenty billion a poultry twenty billion out of one point five trillion. We really haven't cut much have we write what the way I would look at it as this. That's exactly right. And I say this new piece, and I talked about it in. I do report every year called ten thousand commandments serving regulations. And I'm talking about that. Now, the here's the problem. We have you got over three thousand rules and regulations that come out every year. Meanwhile, Congress's only passing a few dozen laws. So it will we talked about the administrative state earlier in the driver seat. It really is it's making most of the law so win the agencies put out their cost benefit analyses. Turns out they only do cost benefit analysis for less than two dozen rules a year. Meanwhile, there are three thousand rules and regulations so win. The Trump administration has said we've cut these we've met our two for one goals for for example. A big problem with guys is that. So few rules are tabulated a quantified in the first place that it's difficulty to even get a grasp of what's really going on. So within that constraint.
