Sunday, August 14, 2005White House Power Grab Puts Public at Risk
The White House submitted a legislative proposal to Congress that would imperil the balance between the executive and legislative branches by concentrating power in the White House free of democratic accountability and would expose long-standing public protections to powerful special interests and industry insiders.
The proposal, the “Government Reorganization and Program Performance Improvement Act of 2005,” forces agencies to plead for their lives every ten years before a “sunset commission” and face automatic elimination unless Congress acts to reauthorize them. The White House would also be able to empanel “results commissions” that would propose plans for restructuring government programs, plans that would then be fast-tracked through Congress with very limited time for debate and no option for amendments.
