Krauthammer : Obama Admin "Enacting Legislation On Its Own Through Regulation" Shows "Arrogance"

"At some many levels, this is a problem," syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said about the Obama administration shortening the time it takes for a regulation to be enacted. "First of all, the volume, as you indicate, which is sort of overwhelming. If you are a small business, you have no idea what's going to happen with your healthcare costs, your taxes and all the other regulations."

"The second is the sort of intrusiveness of all of this and the fact that it really hurts small business who don't have the lawyers and the accountants, and the sharp -- the former legislators who can work your way around the regulations," Krauthammer said. "Then you've got the lack of being open about it. The administration has a short comment period, where you are supposed to have 60 days, by executive order, and you're not getting it. Which means essentially, the executive runs this."

"And lastly, you get the arrogance of it. The administration essentially enacting legislation on its own through regulation, the way it did the DREAM Act and the way it did in stripping away the work requirement in reform of welfare. So all of these things happened unilaterally. A lot of them, I think, are actually illegal and unconstitutional. But even if they are constitutional, they are incredibly destructive of small business," Krauthammer said on FOX News' "Special Report."
