Who’s in charge?

Who’s in charge of the executive branch? A basic governance question.

“Showdown Looms at Consumer Agency,” The Wall Street Journal, November 27, 2018 A1. Temporarily, we have two acting directors of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, one designated by the President and one appointed by the outgoing director (and suing to have a court determine that she’s really in charge).

Leaving aside for the moment whether the CFPB in constitutional, it’s probably important to have a place a mechanism for knowing who’s in charge.

The courts will sort it out, eventually.
