Cutting 'Red Tape' Trump Style

Our government has published a report entitled "Cutting the Red Tape." Inside it has another title "The Regulatory Freedom Agenda." The following is what it promises to do.

"Under the leadership of President Trump, real regulatory reform is under way. Federal agencies have identified ways to reduce the costs and compliance burdens on working Americans and businesses.  As the examples below demonstrate, the benefits of deregulation are felt far and wide and create opportunities for economic growth and development. Farmers can more productively use their land. Small businesses can hire more workers and provide more affordable healthcare. Innovators will be able to pursue advances in autonomous vehicles, drones, and commercial space exploration. Veterans can enjoy expanded access to doctors through a telehealth program. Infrastructure can be improved more quickly with streamlined permitting requirements. These reforms and many others make life better for all Americans through lower consumer prices, more jobs, and, in the long run, improvements in well-being that result from the advancement of innovative new products and services."

This sounds great, doesn't it? Here is the link to the full document, the glossy, not the regulation changes themselves.
