Washington and Business Brace for an Obama Wave of Regulations
January 28, 2013
President Obama has begun to wield the power of the executive to press forward with a second-term agenda that delights the left and terrifies the right.
When he said "we must act" in his inaugural address last week, liberals cheered him on and conservatives saw that the electoral earthquake of November is likely to be followed by a tsunami of executive orders and regulations.
Lawmakers, lobbyists and policy groups say they are expecting a deluge of new rules from agencies across the federal government.
