Mr. Stallings' letter is rather harsh in inferring Congress' lacking of leadership. He seems to prefer "Oligarchy" rule in handing policy/law making over to an un-elected body.

The EPA was intended to be a stewardship & enforcement organization. The Congress is elected by the populace to represent them. If an act passes Congress, & is signed into law by the President, it becomes law & enforceable by the EPA. They DO NOT, SHOULD NOT, CAN NOT make their own policy for enforcement. That is not 'democracy' that is 'oligarchy'.
