Tough Talk and Cave-Ins

While someone I know said, "President Bush can only come out guns blazing from here on in....on any issue", he waffles on banning Davis-Bacon (see my prior post on Katrina from 10/9/05) from Katrina reconstruction.

The NYT reports:

President Bush urged Congress on Wednesday to "push the envelope" on spending cuts to help pay for hurricane relief while the administration backtracked on a ruling covering storm reconstruction that had come under steady attack from unions, Democrats and some Republicans.

Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao said the administration would reinstate the Davis-Bacon Act on Nov. 8 in the areas devastated by the Gulf Coast storms. That law requires paying wages at locally prevailing levels at construction projects financed by federal money.

More tough talk and conciliatory actions. I do not think he is very serious about free market economic issues. But as usual, are his opponents?
