      Is IJ receiving a hand out from this administration allowing Cass Sunstein to write an article for publication? He is one of those nasty Czars hiding in the basement running the show for the shadow government. Shame on IJ for publishing this.

    Wow, this is great that we now have economist Winston Harrington as the final arbitrator of the benefit-cost analayis of governmental regulation. I am sure he has done numerous studies examimining the cumlative effect of all the regulations placed on business and people and ever regulation is well worth the cost!

    “Within the Republican Party, not to mention the business community and conservative policy groups, many people share a single view”
    “Within the Democratic Party, not to mention progressive organizations and liberal research groups, many intelligent people hold precisely the opposite belief.”
    Republicans share a “single view” and “many intelligent people”. What a BIGOTED statement!
    There are over 300,000 Federal Laws with just the EPA having over 84,000 regulations. What this BIGOT is saying is the current Gov’t expansion is just fine. How many laws and how many regulations until we reach Utopia???

    Typical partisan responses. When you cannot dispute the facts with your own, discredit the source.

    I am sure if it was a scathing criticism of President Obama and/or Democrats coming from a right wing source, the lefties would do the same.

    This is why I am an independent. Both sides are more concerned with the source of information than the information itself.

    An interesting topic for an article, and I believe a decent attempt at a fair opinion. However, it leaves much to be desired. A few examples providing support for each party’s view and then a summarizing statement on how we should have a better understanding on regs work in the real world to decide which way to go (more or less). Doesn’t really do anything for me, no real substance to it. But I guess people that are in way too deep to their party may benefit from the reminder.

    My understanding of how regs work in the real world is that they mostly don’t work. Well they work for special interests but not society as a whole.
