Nikki Haley: “Regulators, Mount Up!”

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley signed an executive order this week instructing her sixteen cabinet agencies to identify government regulations which ought to be eliminated. She also suggested the rest of state government follow her lead.

“Government is never supposed to be slowing things down,” Haley told her cabinet. “If you can find a way to speed up your processes, if you can find a way to be more customer-friendly, we can get rid of these regulations that used to matter that no longer matter.”

Which regulations will be cut? Haley didn’t say. In fact according to reporter Andrew Shain of The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper, the governor “did not cite any specific regulations that should be eliminated.”

Hmmmm …

We have no problem with what Haley is trying to accomplish … and it is our hope her cabinet leaders are able to come up with a long and useful list of regulations which ought to be cut.

Having said that, we agree with S.C. Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell that Haley’s latest public relations pronouncement will do very little in practice to slow the regulatory expansion of state government. And more to the point: Why is Haley just now coming up with this idea? Where was this bright idea back in February of 2011?

As with her recently initiated “conversation” on the issue of education, Haley is a couple of years late and lots of good ideas short (so far) when it comes to battling excess regulation in state government.

Perhaps her cabinet will prove us wrong, but based on its performance so far we highly doubt it …

Could be why unions existed in the first place? So first Nikki Haley
gets rid of the unions and now she gets rid of the regulations – who
suffers – the workers and the environment.

Wtf? We can’t copy/paste from the article’s text anymore.

As far as removing “regulations that used to matter that no longer matter,” I don’t see how any sane human being can trust Haley of all people to be able to decide what does or does not “matter.” It is bad enough that the usual politicians who drone on about deregulation do it because they are paid to by people who stand to profit from it, and Haley has quite obviously proven herself as a habitual sellout for anything that will scratch her back in return.

Government should never be about slowing things down? Hmmm. Nikki Haley would govern like the French in 1940. The Wermacht is speeding through the Maginot Line? Don’t slow them down!

Good for her. Compliance people bring nothing to the table. I heard the President of

The American Banking Association say that 20% of banks revenue is spent on compliance.

Looking at the above picture plus the one in “hooker’s boots”, she appears much more contented since the first cuck was deported (I mean deployed). Can you account for all your time Will?

Shezzz, this is just public relations crap. She picked it up from ALEC or the national Governors Association handbook. She does nothing on her own. She just follows the vote getter handbook, raises money and socializes. Worthless.

Yea, she does stuff on her own: she fires Darla Moore, hoses the Savannah river with oxygen so she can deepen the Port, makes Jasper a literal WASTELAND, costs the Port of Charleston hundreds of millions of $$$$$ over the next decade, and helps Mitt Romney lose the South Carolina GOP primary-The Gal has a real Bias for Action!
