House Minority Leader John Boehner (bay-ner) supports repeal of the health care overhaul and the financial regulation packages. The latter got final Congressional approval last Thursday (July 15). Boehner says he wants to see common-sense solutions. Therefore - the Ohio Republican has thrown his support behind a one-year moratorium on almost all new federal regulations - including the new health care overhaul and financial regulation packages. Boehner says a moratorium would create jobs by ending uncertainty among businesses fearful of new federal mandates.
The idea came out of a meeting of business leaders who gathered as part of America Speaking Out - the House Republicans effort to solicit ideas across the country for a fall campaign platform. Boehner says having a moratorium on new federal regulations is a great idea. It sends a wonderful signal to the private sector that they‘ll have some breathing room. Boehner said the only exception he might foresee would be for emergencies.
