White House threatens to veto GOP bill requiring Congressional approval of certain regulations
Source: Washington Post

The White House has threatened that President Barack Obama would veto a pending House Republican bill that would make it easier for Congress to kill proposed government regulations.

The White Houses budget office calls the legislation a radical departure from the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches of government. It says the legislation would create unprecedented requirements that would delay and even block rules mandated by law.

The House Republican proposal would require Congress to approve any regulation that is estimated to cost the U.S. economy more than $100 million a year, would result in an increase in prices, or have adverse effect on competition or jobs.

The Obama administration has identified 219 proposed regulations this year that would cost the economy more than $100 million each.

Sounds like more republican "Regulations are killing jobs" rhetoric.

5. There's not yet anything to do....
Since the President can't veto a bill 'till it's passed both houses of Congress. And of course this will never get through the Senate.

Boner needs to get over the fact that there's a black Democrat in the White House and do something productive for a change.

2. The Executive Branch and the legislative branch overlap too much as it is.
However, since this involves his own powers, I have a feeling the President will hold the line on this.

3.  Won't happen
This won't happen since it will never get out of the senate. Harry Reid controls the agenda for the government right now and if he don't like it, it won't ever get brought to the floor.

4. Just another example of Cry-Baby-Boehner's failure as the house leader.

All he does is waste time on go-nowhere bills.
