Decreasing Regulations

Long Island and New York Will Benefit from Less Government Regulation

Recent decades have seen a stealthy attack on the people’s sovereignty, in the form of the expanding powers of the administrative state. The size of the executive branch of government has ballooned, as administrative agencies multiply. These are known by acronyms – EPA, HUD, HHS, DOE, USDA, TSA, IRS… the list goes on and on.

Slowly but surely, these agencies have taken on a life of their own and are increasingly involved in directing our activities and behavior. Laws are supposed to be enacted by Congress, not by unelected bureaucrats no one has ever heard of, and who are answerable only to the executive branch. Administrative rules with the force of law are spewed out by these agencies, strangling American innovation and productivity.

Returning Lawmaking Power to Congress, Where it Belongs

And yet, Congress has only itself to blame, whether through laziness or ineptitude, or simple indifference, for sacrificing its lawmaking powers to executive branch agencies. I will fight to restore the power of Congress, the people’s representatives, to enact laws.

Government Regulation Imposes Impossible Burdens on Small Business Owners

Excessive government regulation hobbles the economy. New York State is notorious in this regard, making it extremely difficult for small business owners who can’t afford large staffs of accountants and lawyers to deal with all the hurdles imposed by government. Many small businesses can’t absorb the high costs and time commitment needed to comply with countless rules and regulations these agencies mandate. It leaves little opportunity to focus on running the actual business; getting customers and performing services. The economy is better when government simply gets out of the way and lets hard-working Americans do what they do best.

Reducing Bureaucracy Will Help the American Economy Thrive

Americans are the most innovative, hard-working, and resilient people on the planet, if they are just allowed to create, work, and invest without being crushed under the weight of government bureaucracy. Residents of New York and Long Island are smart, creative, competent individuals who can make their own decisions. No one likes being told what to do by bureaucrats who are abusing their power.

For this reason, I will fight to lighten the tremendous regulatory burden imposed on Americans by government bureaucracy. New Yorkers, in particular, are saddled with an incredible amount of regulation. I will work hard to eliminate bureaucratic obstacles the government imposes on our citizens.
