  • Appointment Watch: Heinzerling and Mills

    The mainstream media continue to ignore President Obama’s appointment of bizarre personnel to run the government. Personnel is policy. That being the case the American people need to know about these appointments. This week we look another couple of Obama appointees. These are not isolated incidents or an occasional bad apple. These folks are representative of the appointments he is making with little or no push back from the Senate during the confirmation process.

    Lisa Heinzerling, Associate Administrator for Policy, Economics, and Innovation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

    • Heinzerling is a proponent of using “junk science” in the courts.
    • Heinzerling doesn’t believe that taking costs into consideration when making environmental regulations is appropriate.
    • Heinzerling’s alarmist environmental rhetoric would be more at home in the script of a disaster movie than in public policy debates.
    • Heinzerling was appointed to her position, which does not require Senate confirmation, on July 21, 2009.

    Karen Mills, Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration

    • Mills is a venture capitalist whose investments have not performed well.
    • Mills’ served as Chief Operating Officer of a leveraged buyout firm that later went bankrupt.
    • Mills advocates taking Small Business Administration money away from real small businesses and giving it to large venture capitalists.
    • Mills was confirmed, without one Senator objecting, by the Senate on April 3, 2009.

    These are just a sample of the people President Obama is placing in positions of power within his Administration. If you want more information on these three and many others, please visit: http://www.getliberty.org/content.asp?pl=187&contentid=187
