Why does he love them? Because a “czar” is unaccountable to anyone except the president. Congress has no authority over them. It’s a convenient way to circumvent congressional oversight. No one can call them in for questioning because of “executive privilege.”
Back in the days of FDR Czars were called “dictators”. This was before the term became bad. Not that Czars were a swell bunch.
The fact is, Obama is using them in an illegal way to circumvent the constitution which is designed to prevent one branch of government from getting too much power. And no one is stopping him.
The way the Chrysler bankruptcy was handled was illegal and unconstitutional. The Unions were given preferred status while the secured lenders were pushed to the back of the line. Certain members of the Democrat party and the Unions were given the power to choose the board members, giving them control of the company. Profitable dealers were shut down and the business was handed over through cronyism.
And despite the fact that this all illegal, the Supreme Court under Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s decision, wouldn’t deal with it. It should also be noted the Obama administration told them not to take the case. Since when does one branch push the other around?
The government illegally forced these dealers out of business. Some of them have been operating for 90 years.
Why this is such an issue, if not already clear, is it means the government can break and rewrite any legal contract it wants. It basically kills the rule of law in this country, making it like a banana republic. You know, one of those countries ruled by a dictator.
Investigations need to be launched. The Dems attacked Bush for a lot less than this.
