Regulation is one of the biggest obstacles to entrepreneurship, innovation, and consumer satisfaction. Trimming back these regulations  to more reasonable levels should be of top priority for bipartisan lawmakers. Excessive regulations lead to much compliance costs and present barrier to entry for small business owners. When there is too much barrier to entry, it decreases access to opportunities to many and ultimately more likely to induce greater disparity of wealth in our society….and detrimental to well functioning society.
