    Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the Obama Regulatory iceberg. It's too little, to late.

    President Barack Obama is sacking a controversial proposed (EPA) regulation tightening government smog standards, bowing to the demands of congressional Republicans and some business leaders.

    The proposed smog standard was estimated to cost anywhere between $19 billion and $90 billion, depending on how strict it would be.

    The smog standard was among the Obama administration regulations that House Republicans said this week they would try to block this fall.
