Establishment of the White House Rural Council
Sec. 4. Mission and Function of the Council. The Council shall work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to coordinate development of policy recommendations to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in rural America, and shall coordinate my Administration's engagement with rural communities.

This Council demands membership of these agencies:

(1) the Department of the Treasury;
(2) the Department of Defense;
(3) the Department of Justice;
(4) the Department of the Interior;
(5) the Department of Commerce;
(6) the Department of Labor;
(7) the Department of Health and Human Services;
(8) the Department of Housing and Urban Development;
(9) the Department of Transportation;
(10) the Department of Energy;
(11) the Department of Education;
(12) the Department of Veterans Affairs;
(13) the Department of Homeland Security;
(14) the Environmental Protection Agency;
(15) the Federal Communications Commission;
(16) the Office of Management and Budget;
(17) the Office of Science and Technology Policy;
(18) the Office of National Drug Control Policy;
(19) the Council of Economic Advisers;
(20) the Domestic Policy Council;
(21) the National Economic Council;
(22) the Small Business Administration;
(23) the Council on Environmental Quality;
(24) the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs;


Why do I get the feeling that this Council will have the exact opposite results of it's stated intentions?

    I think its stated intentions are code for "let's urbanize the rural areas." In that case, the Council should do just fine.

    So, I guess some council from the big city is going to tell rural America how miserable they are ?

    I see Soviet style 5 year plans in the offing. Regarding those particular government agencies helping rural areas, that's a lot like a bunch of hungry cannibals helping the missionary into the pot.
    If the U.S. Congress was put in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in under six months.

    ...betting the first thing that comes out of it is a $10mil study to figure out how to get these agencies to work together...

    I guess these tools don"t understand the concept of...."Leave me alone..." which is why I'm a rural person to begin with...

    WTH??? *MORE* Government that is neither wanted or needed? Can you say "lets create some comfy gov't jobs for some friends."?

    And we wonder why they can't cut the deficit.

    I like it; I was thinking I needed a job. They just need to add the Dept. of Human Relations.
    I'm fully qualified to head that department up as I am well versed in Human Relations, to include motivational issues. :zzzz:
