Help wanted
In the News

March 28, 2017

"The collapse of the GOP effort to repeal and replace Obamacare last week was followed by some unnerving revelations in the press, which painted a picture of a president who dismissed Republicans’ paramount concerns as “the little sh**” and a White House counselor who insisted to skeptical lawmakers that they had “no choice” but to vote for the bill. Now comes another glaring sign that the young administration is ill-prepared for the duties of governing: The astonishing number of high-level positions that President Trump still has yet to fill."

"The high court’s 6-2 ruling on Tuesday upheld a lower court’s ruling that President Barack Obama exceeded his legal authority in a National Labor Relations Board appointment. The court said a former top lawyer at the NLRB had served in violation of federal law governing such appointments.

Trump isn’t running the government like a business
In the News

March 23, 2017

"Most businesses do business with other companies that are crucial for their success -- suppliers, distributors, lenders, advertising agencies and the like. Able executives understand the value of proven partners and treat them with respect. Trump, by contrast, has undermined our chief military alliance, NATO; heaped contempt on the leader of a vital ally, Germany; and done everything possible to antagonize a previously friendly neighbor, Mexico. Business leaders sometimes have to fight, but the smart ones avoid unnecessary quarrels with those whose cooperation they may someday need."

President Trump is running an empty government
In the News

March 14, 2017

"President Donald Trump's self-declared war on official Washington needs soldiers. Right now he doesn't have many of them. As the New York Times chronicles at length in a new report, the Trump administration is having the slowest transition in decades, far behind where his predecessors usually were seven weeks into the job. Trump has filled most of his Cabinet, but he has not nominated anyone for more than 500 other vital posts."

In the News

March 13, 2017

"Let’s be clear. Trump should nominate and seek confirmation of the vast majority of Senate-confirmed positions, including the top leadership, policy and managerial jobs in the departments and agencies as well as ambassadors. At the moment, the Cabinet secretaries are home alone and according to Office of Government Ethics data, Trump has few nominees for these important positions in the pipeline."
