New Regulation Costs, by President

Virginia Postrel has been busy this morning, pointing out trends in new regulation. Or, rather, the low amounts of it under the Bush administration.

The best piece of data from the posting, though, is this graphic from the New York Times:

Virginia points out that this graph answers the question, "why would libertarians vote for George W. Bush?" I'd have to say that things seem over-regulated and I even pointed that out in my 1998 Voter's Pamphlet Statement. While I may have backed off from the Libertarian Party because of their own internal problems, I haven't backed off from the principles.
