Rep. Henry Waxman — Democratic Representative fom California chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee — is looking to pull the plug on future presidents hiring Karl Roves of their own for future cabinets…
The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hints broadly that such a bill could ban the use of federal funds to finance such a politically partisan office.
"Why should we be using taxpayer dollars to have a person solely in charge of politics in the White House?" Waxman said in an interview. "Can you imagine the reaction if each member of Congress had a campaign person paid for with taxpayer dollars?"
Yeah! Or if the Democratic-lead Congress actually ever passed a bill that the president didn't like! Can you imagine that?
