Sen. Mike Lee Uses One Simple Photo to Argue That We’ve Become a Nation of Regulations
 Jan. 13, 2014 4:04pm    Becket Adams

Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) believes the United States has become a nation of regulations.

And although Congress was historically unproductive in 2013, according to certain media outlets, most notably MSNBC, the folks responsible for drafting the nation’s federal regulations were plenty busy.

How busy?

Take a look at the following photo from the Utah senator’s Facebook page:

“Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register,” Lee wrote in the Facebook description. “It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats.”

But here’s the part where you really need to pay attention: “The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president [emphasis added].”
