As with all things there is a cycle or an opposing pattern or a “pendulum”. We had some of the most radical left regulations in a generation being pushed out from the EPA without Congressional input so it stands to reason of how things work we would end up with the reverse of that now.
As I warned my far left friends, what one President can do going around Congress, so can another, or they can undo what was done outside of Congress. The only proper way to get changed that stick for some time id to use Congress but with Democrats being less and less a National party and more and more a regional party the likelihood that they will control enough of Congress to make those kinds of large changes is low.
And even when Democrats did have the power they did nothing with it.
