No, those who restrict the Government are the People. The Government doesn't govern itself; the Government governs the People, and the People authorize the Government.
Regulating the government with new regulations is "big government"
That is simply illogical. Reducing the government's power is not big government; it's the opposite. That's the whole point.
the sheer size for the EPA to be constantly running billions of dollars of research to justify ever proposed regulation will cost much more than using scientific consensus.
This is a false dichotomy. Who said the EPA would have to be "constantly running billions of dollars of research to justify ever proposed regulation"? This is about forcing the EPA to disclose its research rather than keeping it secret. You're making up objections based on pure speculation and exaggeration. Try being honest.
