Congressman Steve Scalise today applauded the resignation of Carol Browner, and called on President Obama to eliminate the position of climate czar after it was announced earlier this week that Browner will resign from her post.
"Carol Browner is a poster child for the radical czars who have dominated this administration, serving as a shadow cabinet to implement their liberal agenda," Scalise said. "This radical agenda was most evident when her office manipulated the scientific data regarding the BP oil spill which led to the job-killing moratorium on safe drilling in the Gulf. Her resignation should also represent an admission by this administration that it's time to completely abandon their job-killing "cap and trade' energy tax. While I will continue pursuing the elimination of all czars, I call on President Obama to use this resignation as an opportunity to permanently eliminate the position of climate czar and save the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars while abandoning his pursuit of a reckless "cap and trade' energy tax."
