Are You Tired of Winning Yet?

So Many Executive Orders, So Little Time

The Story so far:

·         Withdrawal from the Trans Pacific Partnership.
·         An order to “ease” the “regulatory burdens” of Obamacare.  Agencies must “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement” of Obamacare that would place a “fiscal burden on any State or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, health care providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of health care services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications.”
·         Freeze on federal government hiring, except for the military.
·         A stop on federal funding for international organizations that perform abortions.
·         A communication ban on the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Human Health Services
·         A freeze on the implementation of all federal regulations currently waiting approval until okayed by Trump’s administration
·         Renewed go-ahead on the contentious North Dakota Access pipeline, which the Obama administration put the kibosh on following a long and contentious standoff with native protesters.
·         Overturned Obama’s nixing of the Keystone Pipeline that would transport shale from Canada to the Gulf Coast.
·         Begin construction on the Mexican border wall  and a beefing up of both border and internal immigration security.
·         A suspension of intake of Syrian refugees and immigrants from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and, Yemen.
·         Suspension of federal grants to “sanctuary cities.”
·         A “major investigation” into mass voter fraud.

Let me know if I missed any.  More are coming, I'm sure.

Is America great again yet?
