We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Anyone actually click the link to see whether this was a lot? It was fewer than the several Bush years, and it doesn't even look like Obama has averaged nearly what Bush did for his presidency.
Also, just as an FYI, Obama and Clinton created more jobs than Reagan, and both Bushes combined, even crediting Obama for the disastrous year of 2009, in which he inherited a horrendous economy from Bush.
Trump gets a very strong economy from Obama. Take a guess as to how long he takes to F it up.
If you look at the Total Pages, Code of Federal Regulation, you will see that the generally trend line is relatively consistent over decades. Considering that the Obama Administration implement a complex new health insurance law, it's actually surprising that it didn't increase at a much faster rate.
This is not an accident or the result of good intentions gone bad. The great middle class is America's greatest asset and it must be destroyed. You cannot take over a country if the people are prosperous and happy. The left intends to tax and regulate the middle class out of existence. There only hope is to agree to vote Democrat for free stuff.
