    (The Hill)- A group of House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to rein in the various “czars” in the Obama administration.
    Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and 28 other House Republicans introduced legislation to do away with the informal, paid advisers President Obama has employed over the past two years.
    The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration.
    The bill defines a czar as “a head of any task force, council, policy office within the Executive Office of the President, or similar office established by or at the direction of the President” who is appointed to a position that would otherwise require Senate confirmation.

    That will be as effective as reading the entire constitution in the House for dealing with the nation's economic woes

    No doubt it plays well in Peoria, though.

    I would like the policy of using these czars(by both parties) to go away, but it should be down the list a bit.

    I thought liberals hated the rich. Do you think obama's czars are poor people?

    I have to admitt the attempt is good but rght now this is a waste of time. This was not their mandate. repeal or defunding obamacare was.
