    administration has been using quietly and effectively.  Regulatory control.

    Now one must admit that having such under the executive means that with bad execs (Bush) things go to hell, but really it's just another power grab by Congress to simply tie up ever more of the government in a way that a small number of idiots (aka teapartiers) in Congress can render the gov't completely ineffective.

    Perfectly Norquistian bathtub drowning legislation.
