The House of Representatives passed legislation, 240-to-179, allowing Congress to undo any last-minute rules and regulations put on the books in the waning days of President Barack Obama.

“This bipartisan bill is about reviving the separation of powers to ensure our laws are written by the representatives we actually vote for – not unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats who are on their way out the door,” said the bill’s sponsor Rep. Darrell Issa R-CA, a former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the current chairman of the House’s Intellectual Property Subcommittee.


  1. Hasn't congress always had the right to do this? Sounds like grandstanding again..... but that's just me; getting more suspicious and cynical in my old age,

  2. I'm encouraged just by the fact that the repubs announced this. Maybe they are waking up from their 30 year slumber.

    I'm sure that ovomit would now literally nuke America if he could because he hates us so much. January 20th can't come too soon for us.
