You indicate that the EPA is doing an "end run around Congress." This is unacceptable. When it comes to cap & trade, the Constitution requires two-thirds of Congress to vote for a treaty. The votes are not there. They were not there when Clinton tried it. Congress represents the people. There are no end runs by bureaucrats or the president authorized by the Constitution. If the EPA decides to operate outside of constitutional authority, Congress should rein it in by, first, stripping it of its authority to intervene, and then punishing this out-of-control bureaucracy by stripping it of one-third of its budget. Congress should then invite the head of EPA to the Hill to apologize for the misbehaviour of the agency, and if the EPA Administrator does not support the action of Congress or fails to show, they should cut the budget by another one-third. We can't have the inmates running the institution.
