u.s. congress considering bills to give unelected commision power to end federal programs

Boehner Makes Sunset Commission Proposal Legislative Priority
"...The sunset commission proposals seek to create a single unelected commission to review federal programs and recommend which should be axed...."

the u.s. congress is considering several laws (h.r. 3277 h.r. 3282 h.r. 2470) that would allow the president to appoint unelected officials to a commission that would decide if a federal program 'lives' or 'dies.' in one proposed bill, even being reviewed by the commssion would cancel the program unless congress votes to retain that program.

in all cases, the laws would take power from the elected representatives and increase the power of the president.
