GOP Votes to Defund Obama’s Czars

Obama has been prolific in appointing non-cabinet overseers to run various portions of the executive branch, known as Czars.  The Czars have always been a point of contention due to the fact that, unlike Cabinet members, they are not required to appear before the Senate for oversight.  Even the late former Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) wrote a letter to Obama protesting the Czars.  Now, the GOP Congress has voted to prohibit funding for the Czars in the latest omnibus spending bill.  Now, Obama will likely veto this bill, and it stands to reason that the Senate version will be quite different, but it’s nice to see the GOP take action against this mess of a bureaucracy that Obama has created.
