Time for them time visit Felix Unger. m/r

As the end of the Obama administration neared, the trolls and munchins buried deep in the bowels of the "regulatory" agencies went into overdrive in order to impose more unconstitutional commands on our long-suffering nation. Alas for them, it turns out there's a law that allows swift repeal of such last-minute baloney, and the GOP is now using it:
Joe Pizarchik spent more than seven years working on a regulation to protect streams from mountaintop removal coal mining. It took Congress 25 hours to kill it.
The rule is just one of dozens enacted in the final months of the Obama administration that congressional Republicans have begun erasing under a once-obscure law — much to the dismay of agency staffers who hauled those regulations through the long process to implementation.“My biggest disappointment is a majority in Congress ignored the will of the people,” said Pizarchik, who directed the Interior Department’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement from 2009 through January. “They ignored the interests of the people in coal country, they ignored the law and they put corporate money ahead of all that.”
Gee, that's too damn bad. Then again, elections have consequences.
