The Constitutional Minute #16: Does the Constitution prohibit the existence of the EPA?

Yes!! Same goes for all other Executive Department offices which make “rules” for us.

Here’s why.

Under our Constitution, only CONGRESS may make laws.

See Article 1, Sec. 1, cl. 1.  Here it is:


“All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”


Executive departments and agencies are not Congress!

The TSA, EPA, FCC, OSHA, FDA, Dept. of Education, Transportation, Labor, etc., etc. are unauthorized, unconstitutional, unlawful offices of the Executive Department, not Congress.


Additionally, our Constitution also does not give Congress permission to delegate their law-making authority to another branch. Congress alone is responsible for laws made.


Our Constitution is one of “enumerated powers only“.   That means that…..If a power is not listed for Congress, then Congress cannot do it!  Where in the Constitution is “environment” an enumerated power? Give Article, Section, and clause please.


When the EPA acts, they are unlawfully and unconstitutionally acting outside the powers We the People gave them!


…and we keep electing the same Congressmen who fund it?
