You probably already know this but its called the Golden Rule: He who has
the gold rules. This is done not by law but by extortion. DC refuses to
give the taxpayers back there own money unless they bow to DC's decrees.
They do, however, have the power to regulate interstate commerce so DC
will continue to limit ICC licensed buses and trucks. That being said,
DC is then responsible for enforcing those limits. Interesting question is
suppose the states refuse to enforce Federal speed limits, as they are not
under any legal obligation to do so?
