White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, a Massachusetts moderate, was reportedly responsible for pushing the nomination of Harriet Miers. Now, Republican sources within the administration tell HUMAN EVENTS that he was responsible for another White House betrayal of conservatives. After Hurricane Katrina, President Bush announced that in the regions damaged by the storm he was suspending the Davis-Bacon Act, which forces government contractors to pay inflated wages to workers. This week, the White HouseĂ?Â˘Ă˘â??Â¬ Â¦quot;pushed by CardĂ?Â˘Ă˘â??Â¬ Â¦quot;reversed the decision and reinstated the act.
