This just in from FoxNews.com:

“The Obama administration pushed through $181.5 billion in regulations last year, according to a new report from a conservative think tank that claimed the rules will lead to higher energy bills, more expensive consumer goods and fewer jobs.

The state that was hit the hardest by new regulations was California, which was slapped with $7.9 billion in new rules, followed by Texas ($6.5 billion) and Ohio ($3.4 billion).

“‘What do these huge sums mean for individuals?

Senator Warren decided to get to the brass tacks about what this government shutdown is actually going to do to the country. She doesn’t mince words.
