Director today. According the to the Des Moines Register, Nussle...
"will advocate the president's budget policies and manage government
regulations in the powerful but highly bureaucratic post." Here is a
list of the 24 Senators that voted against Nussle....And here are 2
interesting comments from Democrats that voted against Nussle...
"Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., who had
supported Nussle in a committee vote, said he and Nussle always have
had a good personal relationship 'but this goes beyond a personal
relationship – he has been an architect of this fiscal policy.' Sen.
Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., called the nomination an 'outrage' and urged
its rejection.
