Mike Lee’s New Bill Would Enforce ‘No Regulation Without Representation’

“If the Founders’ rallying cry was ‘No taxation without representation,’ ours must be, or must at least involve, ‘No regulation without representation,’” Lee said at the think tank’s Capitol Hill headquarters.
Lee said he introduced the Take Care Act as the third part to a conservative legislative program that seeks to reduce the size and impact of administrative agencies, what he called the “headless fourth branch of the federal government.”

This really sounds like a good idea. There would be issues and problems I'm sure but having the regulations debated and oted on is not a bad idea. A second benegit is that it makes Congress do more of the job they are elected to do.

    This bill would only be good for the people.
    Therefore, neither major party will be in favor of it unless it has no teeth to accomplish the objective.
    An amendment strictly limiting any government action under the "commerce" clause and the "necessary and proper" clause of the constitution is really necessary, unlike most things that con-gress has considered "necessary."

    Limit the headless bureaucracy. Model it after Idaho.

      That would be the best way to limit it.
      Given the current Congressional makeup it is doubtful anything will happen this session. If Rebpulicans get control of the House and keep the Senate there is a chance that in the next term something could happen.
