"Chevron Deference v. The United States Constitution"

I vote in favor of the Supremes overturning "Chevron deference".

Berninger v. FCC offers the first best opportunity for a Supreme Court that includes Justice Gorsuch to weigh-in on the powers the Administrative State to self-legislate.  The grant of Chevron deference to the Open Internet Order (and by presumption to the RIF Order) sets a new high water mark for the 30-year old precedent.  The express wording of Commission authority in the Telecommunication Act of 1996 precludes regulation of the Internet.  The fact the Commission claims authority to regulate the Internet exists in a 1934 Depression-era law predating both computers and networking illustrates the problematic ambiguity of "ambiguity" as the legal threshold of Chevron deference.
