President-Elect Trump has the unprecedented opportunity to eliminate thousands of useless federal regulations without any Congressional involvement. Trump is uniquely not beholden to a political party, patrons, pollsters, pundits, lobbyists or ideologues.
His Cabinet and federal agency appointees can use the Administrative Procedure Act to rescind eighty years of outdated, useless and, in some cases, stifling regulations that have impeded business and stunted the growth of the US economy. Mr. Trump, not Congress, should appoint "a Special Advisor to the President for Deregulation" who would work out of the White House with all Cabinet members and agency heads to implement the Deregulatory Revolution.
