So says the guy who’s been collecting every bit of data about your life and who’s imposed the big government monstrosity of ObamaCare upon us. Does he really think he’s kidding anyone with this nonsense?
Making a pitch for Democratic candidates in 2014, President Obama told big donors in California Thursday night that Democrats favor free-market solutions and less government regulation.
“It turns out we’re pretty common-sense folks,” Mr. Obama said at a fundraiser at a private home in Palo Alto, Calif. “We believe in the free market [and] a light touch when it comes to regulations.”
A light touch??? Who the hell is he kidding?
A report by the Heritage Foundation last year found that the Obama administration in its first three years adopted 106 “major regulations” that increased burdens on the private sector, compared with 28 in the same time frame of President George W. Bush’s administration. A study by the left-leaning OMB Watch found that total regulations adopted by the Obama administration are roughly equal to the number adopted by other administrations over the past 18 years.
Meanwhile, he wants to get “stuff” done. Um, OK.
“For us to accomplish that, I’d also like a Democratic House. I just want to get stuff done. On too much of the big stuff, what we see coming out of the other party is an interest in winning elections or in obstruction, not enough interest in solving problems.”
