just let DoJ be the judge of which federal laws need be enforced, when, how, and to what extent.
just let EPA decide when, how and to what extent it is prudent to apply our EPA created regulations"
Kinda like where executive orders replace the Congress, then Bureaucracies' organize to replace both the Cong and the Prez.
Stroke of the pen, we don need no steenking checks, balances, voters.

Dang, if Bush ever tried to do this, Waiver all over the place like the Obama Admin does, he would have been sued every hour of the day instead of every day of the week.

The EPA went on to ask the affected county's residents to help mitigate greenhouse emissions by restricting their respiration. Free plastic bags are available for those who have difficulty complying with this request.

I’d have to study the law to be sure, but I bet there’s a legal waiver process in it. In other words, Congress probably wanted the EPA to have discretion so that true hardship cases and emergencies could be dealt with. Nothing really prevents the executive branch from using such waivers to reward friends and punish foes. That’s a big problem. The laws were written for presidents who would use their powers judiciously, but as we’ve seen, the current administration uses them to punish political foes, even entire states (Texas), and it’s entirely legal.

Waivers for Coal-Fired Powerplants and Steel Mills.
Democrats don’t them announcing shut-downs between now and election day.
Just like the Obamacare waivers.
These are hanging over American business like the Sword of Damocles...
