    Because D-F wasn't really so much legislation as a set of not-sharply-defined objectives, which Congress then passed off to the (unelected) bureaucracy to write rules for. Shockingly, surprisingly, unforeseeably, and unexpectedly, the bureaucracy, which depends on those it regulates to suggest regulations, moves at tortoise-like speed. As for the hope placed in having a Democratic majority again, I don't see it—a Democratic majority with the moral force of a still-fresh crisis and a popular president passed D-F in the first place. What would be better this time around?

      The rules are being written by various government agencies, all which are headed by Obama Administration appointees.

      Pot, meet kettle.
