By Doug Powers  •  April 16, 2011 07:10 PM

**Written by Doug Powers When I read that Obama was going to sign a bill that contained a provision to defund czars, I thought that seemed just a little too easy to be true (as it turns out, so did John Boehner). That’s because it was too easy — and Rep. Steve Scalise said that […]
