Wisconsin GOP Ugly #3: Tantrum over Presidential Powers and Regulation, Republicans Flip-Flop, Passing Bureaucratic Red Tape affecting Veterans and Seniors.

Wisconsin’s congressional Representatives continue to move forward and beyond their racially motivated attacks on Obama by knocking him down a peg, stripping him of his constitutionally granted powers as president.

How can it be anything else, when there’s overwhelming evidence that contradicts GOP claims Obama is acting like an imperial president? The graph isn't ambiguous about executive orders. 

Or how about the Republican outrage over the simple day-to-day rule making abilities of government agencies? Petty and vindictive, this is governing?
The Roll Call feature is a dark look into a GOP led dystopian world where even the Executive Branch isn’t safe from their lust for power and control.
You’ll notice that suddenly, in a shocking reversal, our Republican representatives are abandoning their principles. That was easy. Let's have a costly massive amount of bureaucratic red tape:
NEW HURDLES FOR REGULATORS: The House passed a GOP bill (HR 2804) to impose additional paperwork and public-reporting obligations on federal agencies as they go about drafting and implementing rules to carry out laws passed by Congress. Agencies would be required to file monthly reports on the content, status and legal basis of rules they are developing. The Office of Management and Budget unit that receives these filings would have to post them on the Internet and then publish detailed annual reports on all aspects of federal rulemaking, including projected costs on the economy. The executive branch implements 3,000 to 4,000 regulations each year, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Showing our president whose boss, Ryan, Sensenbrenner, Petri, Duffy, and Ribble voted for more taxpayer draining bureaucracies.

Democrats tried to prevent the bottleneck of bureaucratic delays from hurting veterans, seniors, children and consumers, but our congressmen just laughed:
RULES TO HELP VETERANS, SENIORS, WOMEN: The House defeated a Democratic bid to prevent HR 2804 (above) from interfering with regulations that expedite veterans’ benefits; protect the health and safety of seniors, children and consumers; ensure pay equity for women; provide refunds and rebates to taxpayers; aid small businesses; prevent discrimination; safeguard drinking water and protect food supplies from food-borne diseases.
Just to be clear, Ryan, Sensenbrenner, Petri, Duffy, Ribble made it harder to help small businesses (a big donor) and make sure veterans get their benefits (voter base).

Maybe if people only knew how their Republican representatives were actually voting, they might change their minds. But they'll never see this.
