FRONT PAGE CONTRIBUTOR

CPAC 2011: Peter Roskam (R, IL-06).

He’s the Chief Deputy Whip, and we talked a bit about the budget, budget cuts, and why they’re not ripping off the bandage in one go.

Also, a bit on the REINS Act, which (if passed) would effectively give Congress veto power over any federal regulations that would cost more than $100 million a year. This is, of course, an idea that the Left absolutely hates: which would make it appealing in and of itself; but watching Democratic house organs suddenly embrace the unitary executive principle in response to even the threat of the legislature reasserting its power is even more entertaining…
