Trump Is A Revolutionary Free-Marketeer, But Maybe Something Else as Well

from The Daily Bell:

Andrew Napolitano: Trump has committed the most revolutionary act I’ve seen in 45 years … Within four hours of becoming president of the United States, Donald Trump signed an executive order intended to limit immediately the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) in ways that are revolutionary.

The biggest way that the executive order was revolutionary, according to Napolitano, had to do with part of the signing. When Trump signed the larger document meant to start the repeals process, he went after parts of the law that had been implemented via executive order rather than Congressional mandate.

More:

… He ordered a truly revolutionary act, the likes of which I have never seen in the 45 years I have studied and monitored the government’s laws and its administration of them. He ordered that when bureaucrats who are administering and enforcing the law have discretion with respect to the time, place, manner and severity of its enforcement, they should exercise that discretion in favor of individuals and against the government.

This is radical coming from any president in the modern era of government-can-do-no-wrong. It is far more Thomas Jefferson, the small-government champion with whom Trump has never been associated, than it is Theodore Roosevelt, the super-regulator whom Trump has stated he admires. It recognizes the primacy and dignity of the individual and the fallibility of the state. It acknowledges the likely demise of Obamacare. It is utterly without precedent since Jefferson’s presidency.

Napolitano’s statement is itself revolutionary in the sense that he says Trump has accomplished something in the modern era that he has never seen before. In fact, he has to go back to pre Civil War presidents like Thomas Jefferson to find a similar sort of perspective.
