People not in the obama camp have been saying for a year that this was his plan.... to bypass congress and legislate his agenda through his czars and secretaries of the various government agencies. Obama thinks this will save time and money... but as with the case of net neutrality and the FCC... there will be a big court battle for this new regulation. Here we have a regulatory agency re-writing a law. These executive orders will allow the EPA and other departments to enabled legislation that could raise everyone's energy bill (see cap and trade vote). When you change regulations via congress... things can get held up by partisan bickering, special interests, conflicting regulations... but do they still need to be taken out of the loop in regards to laws? Plus as soon as a new president is elected they can countermand those executive orders.
