Peter Morici to GOP: Get Moving Before Hillary Catches Up

Wednesday, 05 Nov 2014 04:06 PM

The victorious Republican Party must quickly get its act together on Capitol Hill — or risk losing voter confidence, says economist Peter Morici, a professor at the University of Maryland.

The Republicans really have to . . . come up with a reasonable, moderate, and effective plan — an alternative — or business is going to lose a whole lot of confidence in the United States, because they're going to see Hilary Clinton coming around the bend pretty quickly," Morici said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

But the Republican-led House and Senate must also be ready to yank funding to prevent President Barack Obama from signing unwanted executive orders, Morici added.

"That's really the only direction they can go in because Mr. Obama has his appointees in place. They're very, very aggressive in their reading of the law, and they can pretty much write whatever they like into regulations," he said.

"The only way you really can put a halt to them is to take away their money. You can't turn the lights out in the White House. The Supreme Court won't let you do that.

"But you certainly don't have to fund the Department of Education or the EPA at the levels that are necessary for them to intervene in the private sector as they have."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday that Republicans plan to avoid any government shutdowns. But Morici said a shutdown could still come via the White House.

"McConnell hasn't shown himself to be a great tactician in the past. However, he may be taking some arrows out of the president's quill. To say we're not going to have a shutdown, fine, don't blame it on me," Morici said.

"If he doesn't send the president a budget to his liking and the president chooses not to sign it, then it's the president who's shutting the government down."
