People may not think of federal government regulations as hidden taxes, but their total cost drains nearly $15,000 a year from the budget of every American family.


"Federal environmental, safety and health, and economic regulations cost hundreds of billions, perhaps trillions, of dollars annually over and above the official federal outlays that dominate policy debate," said Clyde Wayne Crews, vice president for policy and director of technology studies at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

How does a burger flipper pay the cost of economic regulations which affect the employer?

So you would prefer employers using horse meat in their burgers to save money? Heck, I bet you can make rat patties to rewlly save a buck if it wasn't for those pesky regulations.

Maybe there is a regulation where burger flippers have to use a spatula and the OP could be thinking that if it was not for that reg he would get a raise. But on the flip side his hands would be a mess

Uh.... haven't you repeatedly stated you only earn 15K a year? Guess you meant they get 15k from other American families.

Never came close to saying anything that dumb.. I often wonder what the hell goes through your mind on a daily basis to come up with the synopsisis that you come up with.

Congragulations on coming up with something dumber than the OP..
