White House to NLRB: Cool the Rhetoric

NLRB Following the House's proposed budget, the NLRB released a statement warning that the bill's $50 million cut would require a three-month shut down of the agency (although, as we noted earlier, many members consider that a good thing).  This attempt to warn of decreased efficiency mirrors a Democratic representative's warning that the cuts would threaten the Board's ability to resolve a possible NFL work stoppage.  Apparently, the White House wasn't happy, as the NLRB has since taken the statement off of its website (subscription required).

How was the rescinded NLRB press release rhetoric? The length of the furlough predicted in the release if the Republican budget passes was based on basic arithmetic, since so much of the NLRB budget consists of salaries.
