Senator Mike Lee on the Federal Register

Take a look at this picture Senator Lee posted on his Facebook page.

He had this to say about it:

“Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register.  It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats.  The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president.”

Amazing but not surprising. This probably pales in comparison to the stack of EOs that were signed in 2013.

    It’s a great visual demonstration of why we so desperately need more conservatives like Mike Lee. Republicans should make a statement by placing their registers in a GIANT pile at the state capitol and having a giant bonfire.

  4. Where’s the Obamacare regulations? I know it’s bigger than this.

    Given up on meteors. Going to have to take care of it myself, I guess. Get done in NY with the dozers, we’ll load’em up, and head’em to D.C. All the more proof of the ineptness of the House leadership under Boehner. Lazy, gutless, spineless asshat anyway.

  7. …All of which would be best used as fire-starter material or out-house paper – nothing more

  8. Guess that O and company figger the American Public are toadstools and mushrooms, to be kept in the dark and fed bullchit. What happens, when the sun peeks through???

  9. Now I’ll bet that no one ever knew that so many regulations could literally be one of the most destructive forces in the world…

      Good catch FP, until now the most damaging thing we could expect out of that most ordinary of items, paper, was a paper cut. Now, it turns out to be an implement of the destruction of the greatest nation in the history of the world.
