Fighting for Florida

Consistent with his campaign pledge, Senator Rubio voted today to defund “czars” in the Obama Administration and to block the appointment of future czars without appropriate Senate confirmation, excluding the National Security Advisor. The amendment was offered to S.679, the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, by Senator David Vitter (R-LA). Unfortunately, it was blocked by Senate Democrats.

As the federal government continues to grow rapidly in size and scope every day, taxpayers deserve better than the proliferation of unconfirmed and unaccountable White House czars seen in the Obama Administration.
