White House budgeting goes the Walmart way

Posted By on Sun, Mar 3, 2013 at 10:50 PM

One last note before happy hour:

An e-mail from Walmart corporate communications on President Obama's nomination of Walmart Foundation President Sylvia Mathews Burwell to be Director of the Office of Management and Budget

“We congratulate Sylvia on her nomination by President Obama to be director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“Sylvia is a strong leader who both masters the details and has a clear vision for making big things happen. She cares deeply about people and has natural personal warmth that enables her to build relationships and drive results that deliver impact. She understands business and the role that business, government and civil society must play to build a strong economy that provides opportunity and strengthens communities across the country.

“Sylvia does a great job leading the Walmart Foundation, and if confirmed by the Senate, will do a tremendous job serving our country.”

Think this might improve the way in which Arkansas members of Congress receive Obama administration budget numbers?
