Whether we agree with what is attempting to be done or not, I think many on both sides will agree the situation will be a lot better when it is governed by law (i.e. the product of all three branches of our govt) rather than apparently being the ultimate decision of one person. We're not talking about a small issue here, and if there's enough slop/discretion to allow biting off this much without going through "the process", then that's not good.
Until it is resolved, this decision will be known as the "Telecommunication Lawyer Full Employment Ruling of 2015".
