Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) sat down with FreedomWorks' Director of Public Policy and Legislative Affairs Jason Pye to discuss the near future, when when the new congress begins. To kick off the interview, Pye asked Paul what was on the docket for the first session.

Paul responded by saying that Obama's executive orders are about to face the guillotine.

"You remember when President Obama said he was going to have his pen and his phone, and he'd jolly well do what he wanted," said Paul. "Congress wasn't doing what he thought they should be doing. He went around us through executive order, and regulatory order."

"But all of that can be undone with a new president," continued Paul. "So I'm hoping that they will aggressively undo — and I'm hearing that from day one there's going to be dozens of regulations repealed and changed."

Watch below:

As previously reported, Paul has been itching to kill many of the job killing regulations forced upon the nation by Obama for some time. He made the prediction early on, saying they "were going to spend the first month passing the repeal of Obama regulations, and they will be signed by Trump."

It would appear that Paul's predictions are easily coming true.
