Jim DeMint: No More Appointees Until After Elections
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) believes that remaining executive branch appointees requiring Senate confirmation should be put off until after the elections, including the confirmation of Michael Huerta to head the Federal Aviation Administration.
“We have some policy concerns with some of the contracts he’s done with labor, but it makes no sense at this point when he is already acting FAA chairman to give the guy a five-year term when we are looking at a new administration,” DeMint said Wednesday.
“I think that should be across the board. We are just a couple months away from an election, and those things just need to wait,” DeMint continued
