Speaker Boehner Removing Fiscal Conservatives From Committees

In the final days before the start of the new Congress, House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican establishment are quietly purging strong fiscal conservatives from prominent budget and finance committees.

Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, who has a 100 percent lifetime rating with FreedomWorks, has been removed from the House Budget Committee.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, who has a 96 percent lifetime rating with FreedomWorks, has been removed from the House Budget Committee.

Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona, who has a 96 percent lifetime rating with FreedomWorks, has been removed from the House Financial Services Committee.


Obama admin more secretive than ever…

“My administration,” President Obama wrote on his first day in office, “is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”

As recently as early last year, some open-government advocates were still hopeful, presenting Obama with an anti-secrecy award at the White House. But even then, there were signs of trouble: The award presentation wasn’t on his schedule and was closed to reporters.

“overall secrecy has actually increased rather than declined,” said Steven Aftergood, who runs the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy. “Criminalization of unauthorized disclosures of information to the press has risen sharply, becoming a preferred tactic. Efforts to promote public accountability in controversial aspects of counterterrorism policy such as targeted killing have been blocked by threadbare, hardly credible national security secrecy claims.”



Consider the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act, a bill with bipartisan support that would make it easier to track government spending by requiring agencies to report expenditures in a uniform way online. The legislation is so uncontroversial that it passed the House on a voice vote. But the Obama administration raised objections — and the transparency law has yet to see the light of day.
