JEEZ, CAN THE WHITE HOUSE DO ANY WORSE ON SPENDING?
AP reports that President Bush has reversed course and reinstated the U.S. Department of Labor’s Davis-Bacon regulations on federally funded hurricane recovery and reconstruction projects in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
Mark Tapscott adds:
This latest decision, along with the lack of vocal White House support for the Coburn amendments last week and the growing fiasco of the Harriet Miers nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court could well ignite an open revolt on the Right that could seriously damage Bush’s ability to get anything through Congress for the rest of his second term in the presidency.
He notes a common factor with Bush 41.
