Americans for Limited Government Releases ‘Obama Zombies’ Ad

On Halloween, Group Calls on President Trump to Fire Obama’s Zombie Regulators and Repeal, Freeze Obama-era Regulations

October 31, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—On Halloween, Americans for Limited Government released an ad today to encourage President Trump to take action and remove Obama-era “zombie” regulators that are still wreaking regulatory havoc on the lives of Americans and the economy. The ad also calls on President Trump and his Administration to repeal or freeze Obama-era regulations.

“There is absolutely no excuse for these Obama regulators to continue working on the public dime,” said Richard Manning, President, Americans for Limited Government. “It’s time for Trump to say ‘you’re fired’ to these dangerous, regulation-loving agency heads so that his Administration can continue to keep our economy moving and government out of people’s wallets and pocketbooks.”

The ad cites Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray and Federal House Finance Agency Director, Mel Watt. In the spirit of Halloween, the ad likens these Obama-era regulators to zombies, as they have outlived the end of the Obama administration.
