That's not true.  The Congress has delegated its lawmaking authority  For
example, the new EPA air-quality standards, the ones that will have us all
driving electric tin cans and prohibiting backyard barbeques, were not
drafted by Congress but drafted by the EPA and approved the the President.
Congress can block it, but if it takes no action, the rules go into effect.
