Obama Tries to Trump GOP on Regulatory Reform

Cantor said he applauded Obamas executive order but that it must go further. Thats why I am re-launching the No Cost Jobs Plan today, a plan we presented to the president and his party last year, he said.

Kurt Bardella, spokesman for Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), called it ironic that Democrats have criticized Issa for trying to advance the idea of tying regulatory reform to job creation.

The presidents intervention pretty much undercuts the Democrats ability to attack Issas effort as it is now part of a broader discussion that the president is leading. It begs the question, what will folks like the Democratic National Committee and [ranking member Elijah Cummings] say now? he asked.
