Boehner falsely claims that economic impact of federal regulations is invariably negative
House Speaker John Boehner said the other day that each of 219 pending federal regulations “will cost our economy at least $100 million.”
That’s a lie.
Boehner seems not to understand — or chooses to ignore — that some regulations likely to have an economic impact of $100 million or more will actually benefit the economy at least that much. He wants us to believe that the economic impact of regulations is always to the downside.
