I don’t think the Executive Branch is necessarily too large given the complexity of the matters that each department manages. However, what concerns me the most about the powers of the Executive Branch is the use of Executive Orders to legislate. I can see how the President will have to step in when Congress has not decided on a particular issue, but the use of Executive Orders can also be detrimental to laws that Congress has passed and sets up a much more unstable regulatory environment.
