As part of their recently-launched road show, former Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh and ex-Bush White House chief of staff Andy Card wrote an opinion piece promoting a bipartisan message on regulatory reform.
The op-ed in The Washington Times, headlined “Dialing Back Obama Rulemaking Machine,” neglects to mention that Bayh and Card are both paid advisers to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
iWatch News wrote about the Bayh-Card “odd couple” road show in early June.
Here are a few tidbits from the op-ed: “As the country emerges from one of the most serious economic downturns in recent history, the last thing we need are more regulations that impose heavy burdens on job creators…This enormous onslaught of new regulations could well cost hundreds of billions of dollars, hamper our recovery, undermine our competitiveness and cost jobs.”
