President Obama, basking in Hawaiian sun and sand, has this week issued a flurry of environmental rules, and is planning to gift us with another set of “midnight regulations” right before he leaves office. Cost? Just another $6 billion. The new ones include four from the EPA and one from the Interior Department.
“These five measures alone could impose $5.1 billion in costs and more than 350,000 paperwork burden hours. In addition, three other rules in proposed form could add $898 million in burdens and 146,000 paperwork hours, for a cumulative total of nearly $6 billion in potential midnight costs and nearly 500,000 burden hours from the two agencies. Consider, EPA and Interior have already imposed $349 billion in previous burdens since 2009, 2009,”according to the American Action Forum.
AAF’s Sam Batkins suggested that “The magnitude, $5 billion in long-term costs, and timing could raise suspicion in Congress.”
When you start thinking of a billion dollars as chump change, you might rile up some taxpayers as well. Obama’s Hawaiian Christmas vacation last year cost around $3 million, and the total bill for vacations and travel for the Obamas is around $80 million.
