    Job killers they are.

    ...employment at these agencies has climbed 13% since Obama took office to more than 281,000, while private-sector jobs shrank by 5.6%.

    ....between March 2010 and March 2011 federal regulatory jobs climbed faster than either private jobs or overall government jobs.

    The Obama administration imposed 75 new major rules in its first 26 months, costing the private sector more than $40 billion, according to a Heritage Foundation study. "No other president has imposed as high a number or cost in a comparable time period,".....

    This July, regulators imposed a total of 379 new rules that will cost more than $9.5 billion, according to an analysis by Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo.

    And much more is on the way. The Federal Register notes that more than 4,200 regulations are in the pipeline.
