Federalizing the Chicago Way in government contracting
PJ Tatler contributor Hans von Spakovsky has this piece today at the Washington Examiner relating to the leaked Obama executive order to politicize federal contracting first reported at PJM. The executive order would, by edict, overrule a Supreme Court opinion. But it has a more sinister result, according to von Spakovsky:
"What is really going on here is a transparent attempt to introduce political gamesmanship into the government contracting business by the Obama administration. It is a cynical attempt to use the guise of reform to achieve political goals at the cost of the liberty that all Americans have to participate in the political process, and to voice their political opinions, without fear of retribution to themselves and their businesses."
