    The Tea Party, Libertarians and Republicans scream about reducing government regulations. Obama has done so numerous times. Why is he not given any credit for doing what the TP, the Ls and the Rs say they want?

    It is interesting you use the term "alter" in the subject.

    altering does not necessiacarly mean to delete. Could mean to change or even add to the govt regualtion.

    What would you say are the top 5 regualations that Obama has deleted!

    And how many regs has Obama added to the Federal govt?

    I used the title from the link. They used the term alter. I heard part of this on NPR this evening as I drove to my volunteer work. Unfortunately I did not hear the entire piece.
