Senate kills measure to defund policy ‘czars’

By Josiah Ryan – 06/23/11 01:11 PM ET

The Senate voted 47-51 on Thursday to kill an amendment offered by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) that would have ended the ability of the White House to appoint policy “czars,” and prohibited the use of federal funds for the salaries and expenses of czars already appointed.

The measure needed 60 votes to pass.

Before the vote, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), the Senate’s third-ranking Democrat, decried the amendment from the floor as an attempt to weaken the Democratic presidency and as a “poison pill” for the underlying legislation.

“It is a poison pill designed to handcuff the president’s ability to assemble a team of top-flight advisers and aides,” Schumer said.

Vitter was attempting to attach the amendment to a bill that would streamline the presidential appointment process.

Vitter, who offered the amendment along with Republican Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.), Dean Heller (Nev.) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa), argued that the czars appointed by Obama possess too much power and ought to be under the jurisdiction of the Senate.

“These czars are provided with a considerable amount of power and influence, putting them on the same level as cabinet members who are thoroughly vetted and approved by the U.S. Senate, but without the public scrutiny,” said Vitter in a press release.  “I’m very concerned about that undefined authority of what are essentially political advisory positions, especially when the decisions they make can have a profound effect on our lives.”
