Politico Playbook: 45 Free-Market Groups Sent Letter to GOP Leadership Outlining Essential Requirements for New CBO Director
Politico Playbook -
FIRST LOOK – “45 Free-Market Groups Send Letter to GOP Leadership Outlining Essential Requirements for New CBO Director”: “Independent Women’s Voice, Americans for Tax Reform, American Commitment, Tea Party Patriots, National Taxpayers Union, and Heritage Action are among the nearly four-dozen signees that today sent a letter to [Boehner, McConnell, Sens. Hatch and Enzi, and Rep. Tom Price] advising leadership to appoint a new director with bipartisan credibility, a strong research background, real-world forecast experience, and significant management experience that will ameliorate the agency’s projections, making them more transparent and more accurate.” http://bit.ly/1A3xXRJ
The Weekly Standard -
Given that nine in ten African-American women voted for Democrats in 2014, it may be no surprise that a focus group of urban, female, African-Americans had mostly contempt for all things “Republican” or “conservative.” But what was shocking is that this group also, unprompted, uniformly opposed both extended unemployment benefits and a minimum wage increase, and volunteered conservative economic and moral arguments about their potentially destructive impact on job creation, costs, and conduct.
