Yes, he does. (and hopefully not a "she", at least not for four/eight more years) Nixon created the EPA via Executive Order and it only had to be approved of by House and Senate Committees, not voted on by Congress, thereby bypassing the will of the people. They pass down mandates with the force of law, the enforcements of which depend upon which party is in power at the time.  They recently had their "hat" handed to them over a Wyoming man who created a small pond on his property, fed by a stream and he had made it so "green" that the water flowing out of his pond was cleaner than what flowed into it, but the EPA cited him and tried to fine him  75 grand/ day (16 million bucks!) until a judge ruled in the landowner's favor.  Just one example among many more where they have much more overreach than should be allowed.

Whatever (debatable) good they've done recently was wiped out by their responsibility in directly causing last year's Gold King Mine waste spill.  The Obama Administration labelled it an "accident" but evidence points towards it being intentional. (I'm just about the least conspiratorial person there can be, but this def. smacks of conspiracy)   Then there's their directives about coal plant emissions, directives which were ordered by this Administration, but thank goodness the SC dealt a blow to that. 

The EPA and many of the other "Alphabet" federal agencies need to be done away with or at the very least, be severely limited in their un-Constitutional power.

Of course, the partisan hacks/ignorant numbnuts in this thread would differ, of course.  They are to Obama what Monica was to Bill Clinton.

BTW, I despise Trump, I think he's a buffoon, but Clinton is not only a criminal, but criminally inept and while I'd prefer neither be POTUS, I'd rather have a clown than a crook for President. 

Also, OneTrickpony, Texas doesn't have a property tax, we have a real estate tax and it's on the local level, not state,  and pays for city and county law enforcement, local bridges/roads, municipal services ,etc.  Yes, it's high, but there are deductions a homeowner can take, such as the homestead exemption as well as another for those aged 65 or older.  It depends upon the local taxing entity, but I pay a fair and reasonable amount of tax on my home.   It's the fast-growing places such as the many suburbs of Dallas which have higher valuations because city services are expanding at a proportional rate to their growth...and they're the ones skewing the stats.   The state is funded by a portion of our sales tax (which is high, admittedly) and other taxes on oil/gas, cigarettes and other sin taxes, many other types of taxes.   There have been no "rumblings" of a state income tax, but rather "whispers" and if the politician speaks of it, then they're quickly voted out.

Mike...Trump is no buffoon and he sure the hell ain't no clown.  Other than that, I agree with you my friend.

      I Agree!..l mean how else would one describe an individual who tells a group of farmers in California that there is no drought? If some want to genuflect or kiss Trump's ring,so be it, just leave me out of it. 

      People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.
