Deregulation - No Longer a Dirty Word for GOP, Once Again

WASHINGTON – The Republican-controlled House voted to shield greenhouse-gas polluters and privately owned colleges from federal regulators on Friday, strengthening the pro-business emphasis of legislation that also would chop $61 billion from government spending.

But as a final vote neared on the sweeping measure, newly elected conservatives suffered a rare setback when a split among rank-and-file Republicans sank a move to cut an additional $22 billion.

"The American people have spoken. They demand that Washington stop its out-of-control spending now, not some time in the future," declared Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., one of the 87 newly elected Republicans who have moved aggressively to attack federal deficits and reduce government's reach.

But for other Republicans, the extra $22 billion was a step too far.

"Rather than make careful decisions on specific program the. amendment hits everything indiscriminately in a heavy-handed way," said Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., and principal author of the broader measure. "We were elected to make choices, not run on automatic pilot."

At the end of a week of sessions stretching well past midnight, the House moved toward a final vote on the $1.2 trillion bill that is needed to keep the government in operation when existing funding authority expires on March 4.

The measure, packed with cuts to hundreds of federal programs and terminations of others, faces a veto threat from President Barack Obama and implacable opposition from majority Democrats in the Senate. As a result, it is unclear how much of it will ever become law.

Deregulation needs to continue full speed until we have a full blown depression. The last era of deregulation almost got us there but those fcuking Democrats didn't let it come to full fruition. No honest Republican will rest until that noble goal is finally achieved.

You gotta wonder what the logic is behind preventing federal regulations of private colleges that receive federal money?

....at the taxpayers expense. Federal money for poor and out of work people, bad. Federal money for profit making enterprise, good.

Glad to see that you're finally getting the concept - welfare is due to corporations who will pizz trickle some of that wealth down on the rest of the nation. It's really not that hard to understand. Keep the wealthy happy and hope they'll give you a job. If you cooperate, you might get to shine someone's shoes. And if you do that well, there's a cool nickel in it for you. It's all good, man.

And how is this different from Obama giving exemptions to big labor unions on the taxes they would otherwise have to pay on their "cadillac" healthcare plans? It's ok for the rich to have to pay those taxes on their plans, but not labor?

I think you'll find the hypocrisy spreads around to both sides. Which is why I'm sick of politics in this country.
