Trump's latest executive order is so nonsensical it's probably not even possible to implement or enforce it but, in that event, if it were somehow enforced, it would permanently immobilize an already-crippled Congress.
Trump's newest brainfart calls for repealing two regulations for every new regulation.
The impact of the order was difficult to judge based on the president’s remarks. It could be difficult to implement under current law and would concentrate greater power in the Office of Management and Budget, which already reviews federal regulations. And it would add a new time-consuming requirement for any new congressional legislation on topics as varied as banking, health care, environment, labor conditions and more.
A new time-consuming requirement for a Congress that already can't find time to do anything.
This is essentially an order against legislating. From healthcare, to agriculture and transportation, passing new legislation means passing new regulations, for better or worse. There's no way to replace Obamacare, for example, and possibly even no way to repeal it, if drafting new regulations requires tossing out two more.
As you know, Congress's current time-table for doing whatever it is they're going to do has been pushed back to August at the earliest and Fall at the latest. These expectations should be adjusted accordingly if they start counting regulations one by one.
Obamacare could still be repealed, but it will never be replaced.
