Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

GOP House will introduce bill to eliminate “czars”

Not a bad way to kick off the legislative year, no?  Excerpt:

A group of House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to rein in the various “czars” in the Obama administration.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and 28 other House Republicans introduced legislation to do away with the informal, paid advisers President Obama has employed over the past two years.

The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration.

The bill defines a czar as “a head of any task force, council, policy office within the Executive Office of the President, or similar office established by or at the direction of the President” who is appointed to a position that would otherwise require Senate confirmation.

Yes, I know Bush and Reagan also used czars.  I didn’t like it then, and I don’t like it now.  The Constitution doesn’t permit czars, period.

Exit prediction: Reid won’t let this get to the Senate floor, which is odd, if you think about it.  This bill basically reinforces the Senate’s right to advise and consent when it comes to appointees, which you would think the Senate would appreciate and embrace.  But Reid is such a partisan hack that he doesn’t mind ceding Senatorial authority to a Democrat president.  I don’t have to wonder what his reaction would be if the president were a Republican.

  1. The Czars must go. I think those creeps probably do more work in the Administration than Obama himself.
