“The idea that federal courts are required by law (Chevron Deference), to take the side of an often highly-politicized federal administrative agency (like the SEC, FDIC, etc.) over individual citizens and private institutions…

…in their interpretation their own often vague and arbitrary regulations, is un-American and un-Constitutional, and is just like the dystopian world described in George Orwell’s novel “1984”. So glad to see the Republicans in Congress take up this matter and try and eliminate it. While they are at it, they should fix two other matters.  First, government officials, whether elected or appointed, should not be protected by sovereign immunity, when they libel or slander individual American citizens. Second, in civil matters, plaintiffs lawyers are protected by law from their lies, misstatements (intentional or not), omissions, distortions, biases, and lack of fact-checking, made in their allegations within the four-corners of a lawsuit. Given this well-know fact, the press/media should not be protected from libel and slander lawsuits, where they regurgitate allegations from civil lawsuits (even ones filed by governments or their agencies), without any independent verification of the often blatantly false allegations made.”, Mike Perry, former Chairman and CEO, IndyMac Bank
