The Power of the Purse

Via Farm Policy, Representative Lucas tried to cut off money for FSA to pass program participant info to IRS, to have them tell FSA if the AGI limit was exceeded. His try failed, but it's an example of how the power of the purse can determine policy. (I remember when House appropriations tried to block the salaries of the Deputy Administrator, State and County Operations and the assistant..)
