The issue of "the administrative state" is such a tricky one--a mixed bag.
This is where a lot of "red tape" issues come in to play. When we complain about too much government over-sight, or too much bureaucracy, this is what we're complaining about. There is a lot of corruption all throughout these bureaucracies, millions if not billions of dollars wasted, but we make a mistake by throwing the baby out with the bath water!
The Repubs have been talking about this for years! Yes--in an ideal world, it would be nice if we had competent, enlightened people who were in key positions in government, i.e., Congress, who could make fair, honest decisions in all cases--but we don't...hence, all the "protective" agencies built in to our government, who make the real decisions.
If the administrative state is eliminated, that means all those "incompetent" politicians would be forced to make all the decisions. Men like Gorsuch would then be the interpreters of the law of the land.
All humans are fallible. Our government is a seething, roiling, pit. We have very little checks and balances--corruption has taken care of that. But then...Angels and Demons! It's a toss-up at present.
