Coming soon to retail stores and restaurants, balancing ponies as assistance animals for the disabled. Apparently there is a huge public clamor from people with balance issues to be able to take their ponies into Denny’s and compassionate bureaucrats were only too happy to oblige with a new regulation that forces businesses allow ponies in their establishments.
Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR) just got a bill passed through the House on July 27th called the ‘Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act (H.R. 4078) which is intended to reduce the voluminous, onerous and ridiculous regulations that are flooding out of Washington’s bureaucracy.
H.R. 4078 would put a moratorium on new regulations that would cost the economy $100 million or more until the unemployment rate falls to six percent or below, but makes exceptions for federal rules necessary for national security, trade agreements, enforcement of criminal and civil rights laws, and imminent threats to health or safety. It also allows the President to seek congressional approval for other regulations he believes are absolutely critical.
CNS News has the story and the video of Rep. Griffin speaking about the ponies and other ridiculous new regs, such as requiring swimming pools to have not one, but two handicap accessible entrances, among other things.
But will this get past Harry Reid’s Senate or will he pull an Aunt Manya?
This is proof that every topic in life has a pertinent Seinfeld reference.
