RNC Calls Obama’s $500K Conference Spending Cap, Proposed By A Republican, ‘Wasteful’
The Republican National Committee mocked guidelines issued by the Obama administration on Friday that will make agencies seek special permission to spend over $500,000 on a conference, calling the policy “wasteful.” What the RNC might not have realized is that members of their own party proposed a cap in the exact same amount.
The RNC quickly criticized the guidelines, writing that “such a strict spending limit” would force the GSA to choose between either a mindreader or magician.
“With wasteful policies like this it’s not hard to figure out why Obama has run the three largest deficits in history,” RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said in a statement, mocking the guidelines as “capping all conferences at the low, low price of $500,000 (unless they are granted ‘special permission’).”
…Ironically, $500,000 is the exact same cap contained in an amendment proposed by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), who is known as one of the biggest spending hawks in D.C. The House unanimously passed a bill which contained the same $500,000 cap that was proposed by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA).
