Rep. Connie Mack (FL) published a special piece in Roll Call today looking forward to the next two years. Read an excerpt of the piece here:
The results of the historic 2010 elections have given us the opportunity to change course and restore our Constitutional government. The principles of limited government that were so fiercely protected by our nation’s founders have been trampled upon by Members of Congress who have sworn to uphold the Constitution and unelected, overzealous bureaucrats who seek to regulate every aspect of our lives.
One does not need to look further than the massive nationalized health care behemoth known as Obamacare as evidence of this overregulation.
But it doesn’t stop there.
The extremely intrusive security screenings by the Transportation Security Administration, the Federal Highway Administration’s ruling requiring local communities to reformat street signs that use all capital letters and even the mandate that Americans use compact fluorescent light bulbs instead of incandescent ones by 2014 are all the proof one needs that the federal government has gone too far.
