This regulation is EXACTLY why we need to ELIMINATE unconstitutional executive departments. By what authority did Obama's labor department extend this regulation from six months to five years? The Declaration of Independence says that "governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." Did you consent to this regulation? Did you get a chance to vote for or against it, citizen? Did your duly-appointed representatives in Congress? Nope! So if it wasn't by the consent of the governed, then by what authority do these agencies act? By their own. By their own self-declared authority. And what kind of leadership claims and expands its own authority: one moving us toward liberty or one moving us toward tyranny (no government action is neutral)? In the interest of not giving up an inch of liberty in any sphere, I say to vote in favor of blocking that regulation. If longer records are something you want, then use your voice (via your representation in the houses of Congress) to declare your consent. Now, I would still oppose it because I think that's none of the government's business, but there I have an opportunity to declare my non-consent. But do not tyrannically declare that "this is now the way it's going to be, not because you all agreed to it, but because I say so." Is that really a precedent you want to set?
