President Barack Obama will ask Congress on Friday for authority to close the Commerce Department and create a new export agency, an overhaul that could save $3 billion and help inoculate him against Republican election-year charges that he is a big-government liberal.
White House budget official Jeffrey Zients told reporters the reorganization would fold together the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and other trade bodies now spread across Washington, giving businesses a single point of contact and ensuring federal spending goes further to boost exports.

Tell him to close HHS, Dept. Of Ed., EPA, and HUD along with it, and we’ll think about it...
What is amusing is that the proposed budget for the new agency isn’t mentioned. Also, why create a new export agency unless he plans on the new agency being largely answerable to him.
Enabling Act- Part II, The American Version
And of course he’d staff it will all his own America hating cronies.
"What is amusing is that the proposed budget for the new agency isnt mentioned. Also, why create a new export agency unless he plans on the new agency being largely answerable to him."
All part of the design.
He plans to bring in foreign manufacturing firms that will need to “export” their goods. He wants, and needs control.
I would not give Obama ANYTHING he asked for. There is always an ulterior motive. Always. Give him NOTHING.
The Bent One thought he had it good with Ron Brown. Zero’s move would be a game changer for tech transfers and like Clinton, they would be hitched to campaign contributions.
Would rather see Congress steer this.
Remember, those special 12 couldn't agree on one damn cut.
Cut governement wages and pensions. In fact...nopension for reps....that'll keep them from making a career out of it.
Oh, how history repeats. One thing to remember is that government schools have no interest in teaching about liberty and tyranny. Given that we have a population totally ignorant of the principles and history and ideas behind the Founding.
Teachers have no idea and those that do are liberals and think that Fascism is rightwing. We’ve been dumbed down for democracy and democracy always leads to tyranny. Can it be turned around?
Changing the names should not protect the guilty .
As a life-long bookkeeper, I can assure you all that closing one entity & opening another to ‘save money’ rarely does such.
You are discarding expensive stationary, logo identities, laying off people who will drain your unemployment accounts & put you into a higher bracket with the new entity.
The new entity must create it’s logo ID, print all new invoices, stationary, business cards, etc. They must paint new colors on buildings. They must change over titles on all vehicles. They must change over leases on any leased equipment. They must change over all bank accounts. They must change over all rental & lease agreements on buildings, etc. Some of such changes could include penalties.
They will automatically be put into the highest bracket for state unemployment costs as a new entity. They will have legal costs in filing state & Federal papers for the new entity. The accounting records will have to produce double the payroll records for the year, as employees will have worked for 2 different entities. They will be paying lawyers & accounts to complete all this changeover.
None of this is cheap-—Any savings will have to take at least a couple of years to manifest themselves.
Anytime Barry the Imposter says he will save us money, grab your backsides. You are about to get shafted even more!!!!
