The Time Is Now: Anti-Appropriations

Norquist brought it up. Governor Walker should look at it. Hard.

...leading critics of government’s size and scope believe they have part of the answer to their Cardinal foes. They are pushing a rival committee that’s purpose would be to undo the waste in spending bills.

“I call it the anti-appropriations committee,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

It's useless to try it in the Senate, but the House? Hmmmmm!

While the Byrd Committee is the model for the new proposal, Norquist said that because the committee is unlikely to overcome a filibuster in the Senate, Republicans should push for it first in the House, rather than holding out for a bicameral version

Boehner (The Tanned One), admits he never heard of the proposal.
