Rep. Gomert To BLM: Keep Up The Arrogance, Denying People Access To Land And We'll Cut Your Budget

How often do you see Congress taking the unelected Bureaucrat by the horns and threatening the one thing they truly care about? 

But this could have played better, if Congress actually took their funding away, all of it, without any ifs, ands, buts, or ways out of it.

Goodbye. Nice to know you. Write if you find an honest job. 

Sounds like it would be much better to have federal lands under State control, closer to where local people can hold politicians to account.
Via CNS:
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) told two federal land officials, “I come bearing good news. I think if your employees keep up the arrogance, keep denying access to the land then very soon we’ll be able to dramatically cut your employees back and start turning those powers over to the states.”
Gohmert’s comments came during a Joint Legislative Hearing “To protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting, and for other purposes” in late May.
Deputy Director of Operations for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Steve Ellis and Deputy Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, Leslie Weldon testified at the hearing and heard complaints about denial of access onto National Forest Service and BLM land from sportsmen and law enforcement.

Thank You CNS and Nick.
