When government gets out of the way, good things happen.
“The regulatory system in the United States is suddenly so much easier. It was becoming an avalanche of regulations in every direction,” he said. “From a business community stand point this is quite transformational, there will be a lot of capital attracted to the U.S. because of that.”
Even Democrats like Ralph Northam are taking note of the power of less red tape.
Earlier this week Northam joined Virginia Republican House of Delegates Speaker Kirk Cox in supporting legislation that will target “burdensome and unnecessary regulatory requirements facing hard working Virginians.”
“Promoting the health, safety, and prosperity of Virginians is the chief mission of our state agencies, and regulations can be a helpful tool in that mission,” Northam said in a prepared statement. “However, we have a responsibility to constantly evaluate every regulatory requirement and policy to ensure that it is doing its job in the least restrictive way possible.”
As you cover Ralph Northam’s change of heart — and President Trump’s success — please consider the following statement from me:
“You can’t argue with results. It’s gratifying to see Democrats like Governor Northam join Republicans in our efforts to unleash the potential of Virginia's entrepreneurs. As we’ve seen in just a short time, there’s no limit to what Americans can accomplish when government gets out of the way even just a little.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
