David Shuster reports on the National Council for a New America's pizza party. Seems they were a bit short on any female participation and on new ideas as well. As Shuster notes Mike Pence has asked the GOP to fire legislative staffers, the ideas people, in order to hire former Bush staffers for communications.
I realize that Pence isn't exactly a policy wonk, despite his role as the #3 Republican in the chamber, but this advice only helps reinforce the notion that the minority party is fundamentally unserious about public policy. Legislative staffers tend to work on substantive issues, including constituent services. Pence encouraged his GOP colleagues to get rid of these aides in order to hire staffers to focus on media? C'mon.
Hey who needs staffers when you're getting ideas like this anyway?
