AMERICAN ACTION NETWORK AND CROSSROADS GPS HOST EXECUTIVE POWER EVENT
How Does the Executive Branch’s Abuse of Power Threaten Our Economy?
The American Action Network and Crossroads GPS invite you to an event titled “How Does the Executive Branch’s Abuse of Power Threaten Our Economy?” to discuss the unprecedented expansion of executive power during the past three years. This event will feature speeches from Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, Representative Peter Roskam of Illinois and panel discussions with former senior government officials and economic experts.
Since 2009, this administration has taken every opportunity to assert control over the economy and force policy changes without regard for constitutionally prescribed checks and balances. Whether abusing the regulatory process to impose politically useful changes or ignoring the Constitution with non-recess “recess appointments,” the growing arrogance of the executive branch threatens our economic prosperity.
The event will starts promptly at 8:45 am with continental breakfast and will include speeches by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Rep. Peter Roskam of Illinois, and former Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota, Chairman of the American Action Network as well as two panel discussions.
Steven J. Law, President of Crossroads GPS and former Deputy Secretary of Labor, will moderate the first panel: “The Growth of Executive Power Since 2009,” and will be joined by panelists former Attorney General Edwin Meese and former Ambassador C. Boyden Gray. A second panel titled “The Economic Impact of Overreach” will feature a discussion moderated by American Action Forum President and former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin with panelists Randy Johnson of the Chamber of Commerce and economist Diana Furchtgott-Roth of the Manhattan Institute.
