No wonder the economy is stalled: Under the Obama administration regulations have increased by 7.4%, totaling 11,327 pages of new rules.

I should add that these numbers were only slightly better under Bush or Clinton. In general, our federal government has done everything it can for the past two decades to stifle freedom and innovation.

    You are right, the number of regulations for the past couple of decades has remained fairly constant. OMB Watch tracks this fairly closely with some clear charts:

    I like how they look at “economically significant” regulations, and even there they have increased 12% under Obama.
