On Sunday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll examine the death and complicated legacy of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Then we’ll zoom out, to reflect on the state of Latin America in the wake of Chavez’s death. And finally, we’ll examine how the rules get made in Washington — and who makes them. Regulators are still at work promulgating many of the rules that will determine whether some of President Obama’s signature initiatives, such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street form bill and the Affordable Care Act, succeed.
