Guest post from Americans for a Better Economy - America's most effective grassroots opponent of liberal environmentalists
These 16 Senate Republicans have NOT co-sponsored Rand Paul's REINS Act.
That’s a problem.
The REINS Act is a simple, but Swamp Draining reform. It takes away the power of unelected bureaucrats to make up and enforce their own laws, by calling them regulations.
Under the REINS Act, no major regulations would take effect unless passed by both chambers of Congress and signed by the President. In other words, if it's enforced as a law, it must be passed as a law. No more Regulation Without Representation.
The REINS Act easily passed the House. President Trump wants it on his desk so he can sign it into law.
Senate Democrats plan to block it with a filibuster. Why are these 16 Republicans refusing to back this conservative reform?
Call them. Tell him or her to:
1) Co-sponsor Rand Paul's REINS Act, and
2) Demand the House-passed bill immediately be brought to the Senate floor for a recorded vote.
