My personal message to my Senators and Representative:
NO REGULATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
Pass the REINS Act Now!
To my U.S. Senators and Representative,
Unelected, unaccountable, career D.C. bureaucrats have the power to make up and enforce their own laws.
These regulations, imposed without the consent of Congress, are costing Americans billions of dollars in wasteful, abusive costs.
Some of these handed-down regulations are even radical ideas rejected by Congress. How can unelected, unaccountable, career D.C. bureaucrats enact their own laws Congress rejected?
The REINS Act 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 in the last Congress. President Trump wants it on his desk so he can sign it into law.
But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is blocking a vote on the REINS Act. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has yet to schedule a vote on it.
I stand with the grassroots supporters of Americans for a Better Economy in calling on you to
1) Immediately co-sponsor the REINS Act, and
2) Demand Majority Leader McConnell immediately bring to the Senate floor for a recorded vote on, and to vote in favor of, the House-passed REINS Act, or
3) Sign a discharge petition to bring the REINS Act to the House floor vote for a vote.
I, and every supporter of Americans for a Better Economy, will be watching what you do.
