The White House has told Congress it will reject calls for many of President Obama’s policy czars to testify before Congress – a decision senators said goes against the president’s promises of transparency and openness and treads on Congress’ constitutional mandate to investigate the administration’s actions.
The debate goes to the heart of weighty constitutional issues about separation of powers. The president argues that he should be allowed to have advisers who are free to give him confidential advice without having to fear being called to testify about it. Democrats and Republicans in Congress, though, argue that those in office who actually craft policy should be able to be summoned to testify because they do more than just give the president advice.
Like everything else that Obama tries to keep secret, we have to ask: What is Barack Obama hiding from the American people. No Obama transparency here which he promised during the campaign. Oh well whats another lie from Obama’s mouth!
I feel that some in congress has figured out that there are some dirty tricks between Obama, Czars and his policies. Maybe we will one day see a few in congress with backbone enough to stand up to this socialist president Obama!
