So they want one all-powerful government agency to control everything?
I'll vote for that.

The Job Creators Network was co-founded by former Godfather's Pizza mogul, Herman Cain.
Imagine how much more money he would have today if he didn't have to deal with so many stupid and useless government agencies whose job it is to protect people from dangerous products. How can we let such tragedies continue to happen every day?
Won't someone think of the Herman Cains of the world?

There is something to be said for the bloated administration and overlapping responsibilities of the various agencies. E.g. they could combine all the consumer-food aspects under one agency, possibly also with agriculture and manufacturing, while keeping drugs in another, since the industries are somewhat different.
Of course the area where regulatory overlap is the worst is probably in intelligence+law enforcement, but I doubt the "Job Creators" would want to rationalize that area.
Also having a bloated government DOES create jobs, but it's harder to underpay those workers and prevent them from accessing benefits.
Most of the crap they're bitching about in the ad isn't actual overlap.
What I'm guessing they want is to remove all regulation other than making sure whatever you stick in your mouth doesn't have bacteria or lead, ignoring all the horrible shit happening right before that step (or that the stuff is actually as advertised, not cheese colored paper-mill byproduct sold as actual cheese).
Or to have one person inspecting items so many different unrelated fields that it's impossible to be competent in all of them and you get ignorant inspectors rushing to check one site for -everything- and doing a terrible job of it.
But I'm probably giving these idiots way too much credit...they just don't want to pay money for anything that doesn't directly benefit them.

The Job Creators Network wants to do away with all regulations and just let laissez-faire capitalism run rampant.
Most of the videos on Information Station portray regulations as crushing small businesses, but in reality small businesses are exempt from a lot of things like minimum wage, providing health care plans, paid sick leave, etc. These things are mostly an annoyance to large corporations, especially ones that use the franchise model.
Back when the Kennedy administration first instituted a minimum wage, good old Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart tried to skirt the system by busting up his network of stores into separately-run businesses with fewer employees so he wouldn't have to pay them a living wage. It didn't fool the Feds who took him to court to force him to start paying his employees minimum wage and give them checks for the back pay. He cut the checks for the back pay, but told his employees anyone who cashed them would be immediately fired. His partners quickly told hem Sam was just joking and of course they could cash the checks.
These are the sort of people that succeed in big business. You don't amass a fortune by caring about customers or employees. You wring all the cash you can from them while giving them as little as you can get away with.

We have the lowest food prices in the world, so I don't even know what these fucks are riled up about. Seems like 12 bucks for a large pizza is too much for these crybabies.

THERE IS NOT EGG IN PIZZA DOUGH.

I think Godfather's crust recipe might use egg. Their crust is weird.
That Guy's right, though, and it's the worst thing in this.

The whole conservative position for the last 30 years is an attempt to change the question from the productive and specific "how can government effectively do x?" to the abstract and ideological "how much government do we need?"

Buying pizza is for suckers, the only thing on a pizza I don't make myself is the cheese and that's just because I don't feel like carrying home a gallon of milk after work. I'm the Ron fucking Swanson of pizza.
Actually I have to recant that a bit, I don't grow the herbs and vegetables I use to make the sauce.
