McCotter Favors Abolishing His Own Leadership Position

The Prowler item on the main page today notes the conflict between House Minority Leader John Boehner and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor over abolishing the House Republican Policy Committee.

At issue is the $400,000 taxpayers provide to fund the committee’s work. McCotter and other Republicans are arguing that giving that money back would set a good example for the much broader austerity moves that need to be made throughout the federal budget. I profiled McCotter in the December/January issue of the print magazine.
