Is congress to blame for the 'RED TAPE' in bureaucracy? if so to what extent?

  • American Government -

    the Bureaucracy only administers laws, buy issuing regulations that conform to those laws (and court decisions).

  • American Government -

    Congress is only partly to blame for red tape. In trying to be fair and represent their constituencies, senators and representatives have tried to make sure that the people's money goes to where it's intended. Part of their job is this oversight of budget expenditures.
