The Problem

There are thousands of examples of government regulations that do more harm than good.

The cost of regulations can often cause businesses to close their doors, or never open in the first place.

The Solution

There’s already too much regulation on every part of our daily life. Before a government agency proposes a new regulation, it should have to show how much the regulation would cost taxpayers. Also, our elected officials need to go through the existing regulations and weed out the ones that are not absolutely necessary.
