|The Deep State. The administrative state. The federal bureaucracy: Call it what you will, there is no denying that America today has a sprawling system of government that was never envisaged by the Founders.
Nowhere in the Constitution does is say that there should be an Environmental Protection Agency, nor a Department of Education, nor an FAA, ATF, HUD, NRC – nor any of the rest of that alphabet soup of bureaucracy.
The great news is that on Thursday, the Supreme Court finally did something about it. Ruling in West Virginia Vs the Environmental Protection Agency, the Court decided that the EPA simply did not have a mandate in law to be imposing policy decisions regarding energy production on states.
