Get rid of

the abomination known as Chevron Deference. What Chevron Deference says is that if Congress passes a law and doesn’t give the details of how it should be carried out (crappy law-making), the unelected bureaucrats in that agency can just decide on their own how it will be applied.

The idea is this: if the wording of a statute is ambiguous or does not specifically forbid something some executive branch agency would like to do in an area covered by the legislation, the agencies, president, and courts can assume the proposed rule must have been okay with Congress, or the legislature would have said so in the text of the statute. 

So rules without representation. Huh. Doesn’t seem right to me!
