@Elise This woman should be in jail, not holding office
Honestly she's proof of just how terrible and corrupt the GOP has become.

@Wipqozn I think the implications of this ruling will be far broader than the EPA, basically SCOTUS has said that Congress can't delegate the details of policy to executive agencies (you know, the agencies Congress created to figure out and implement the details of the areas in which they operate)
This is a major blow to the ability of government to, you know, work.
Of course, that's long been the goal of the right in the US; to break the government then run on how badly the government is broken...

@BradC the gun can be smoking with the finger still on the trigger and he still got away from being impeached
Twice.
 
@user4539917 guess we'll see. Fortunately the DOJ doesn't need 2/3rds of the Senate to file an indictment against the former president
 
Yup, it should be interesting...
...thanks for all the informative links, sir.

@Wipqozn I'd say I don't understand how she's not in jail, but the people that have the power to put her in jail are on her side
 
@BradC Yeah. I'm taking Administrative Law next term. I'm not sure I'm looking forward to a more complete understanding of the implications of that ruling.
 
Here's an article that focuses on that aspect of the ruling:
> “In rewriting that text, the Court substitutes its own ideas about delegations for Congress’s,” Kagan writes. “And that means the Court substitutes its own ideas about policymaking for Congress’s. The Court will not allow the Clean Air Act to work as Congress instructed. The Court, rather than Congress, will decide how much regulation is too much.”
> “The Court appoints itself—instead of Congress or the expert agency—the decision maker on climate policy,” she concludes. “I cannot think of many things more frightening.”
Oh, Thomas quoted debunked QAnon nonsense in his dissent on the Covid-19 religious objections case today:
