Republicans are trying to defund President Obama's army of Czars. Senate Democrats claim they are ready for a fight. Popcorn anyone?
(Politico)Senate Democrats are willing to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s policy “czars” in the White House.

As they rolled out their stopgap 2011 fiscal spending plan Friday, Senate appropriators drew a line in the sand over a House attempt to oust Obama’s senior advisers on policy issues including energy and health care out.

Senate Appropriations Committee Democrats blasted the language as “an intrusive micromanagement of the president’s White House staff via appropriations.”
