Byrd Statement On White House Rescission Proposal

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Unknown

"This is nothing but old wine (or whine) in a new bottle. Congress has the Constitutional authority over the power of the purse and I am not in favor of yet another attempt at a power grab by a Chief Executive."

"The elected representatives of the people know a lot better than any bureaucrat in Washington as to what are our spending priorities should be. Not only would these rescission decisions be those of unelected bureaucrats -- with no transparency or accountability, they would allow the White House to leave intact its own spending priorities."
