Stop The Czars

Czars??? We don't need no steeenkin' czars!!!

The problem is not the position, its the people who fill those positions.
Most of them couldn't obtain a security clearance to work in the places I work. No vetting, no background checks. working at the highest levels of government with access to above Top Secret intelligence? We already know the philosophy of the people Zero associates with. SDS, Weather Underground, New Black Panther Party. Individuals with admitted ties to Marxist organizations and goals which are 180 degrees opposite of the Founding Principles.

I can tell you what the Founding Fathers would do.

Politics : Foxx cosponsors legislation to rein in unelected “czars”WASHINGTON, D.C.—

U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx (NC-05) today announced that she is cosponsoring legislation (H.R. 3226) to re-establish Congress’s constitutional role in the presidential appointment of government ‘czars’. Since taking office, President Obama has appointed dozens of powerful administration officials, popularly known as ‘czars’, outside the Senate confirmation process established by the Constitution.

“In the past eight months the Obama administration has appointed more than 30 czars with power over every conceivable area of government and very few have gone through the constitutionally mandated Senate confirmation process,” Foxx said. “Congress must reclaim its oversight role in the confirmation process of high-ranking administration officials.”

“As the recent dust-up over President Obama’s green jobs czar shows, transparency and accountability matter,” Foxx said. “I believe that every President should be
advised by the best and brightest our country has to offer. But I am concerned that the proliferation of unaccountable czars threatens to undermine our system of checks and balances.”H.R. 3226, the Czar Accountability and Reform Act cuts off funding for czar positions which have not been subject to Senate confirmation. To date the Obama administration has appointed ‘czars’ with authority in areas from bank and auto bailouts to technology and energy policy.
