9780815725206: Presidential Pork: White House Influence over the Distribution of Federal Grants


Presidential earmarks? Perhaps even more so than their counterparts in Congress, presidents have the motive and the means to politicize spending for political power. But do they?


In Presidential Pork, John Hudak explains and interprets presidential efforts to control federal spending and accumulate electoral rewards from that power.


The projects that members of Congress secure for their constituents certainly attract attention. Political pundits still chuckle about the "Bridge to Nowhere." But Hudak clearly illustrates that while Congress claims credit for earmarks and pet projects, the practice is alive and well in the White House, too.


More than any representative or senator, presidents engage in pork barrel spending in a comprehensive and systematic way to advance their electoral interests. It will come as no surprise that the White House often steers the enormous federal bureaucracy to spend funds in swing states. It is a major advantage that only incumbents enjoy.


Hudak reconceptualizes the way in which we view the U.S. presidency and the goals and behaviors of those who hold the nation's highest office. He illustrates that presidents and their White Houses are indeed complicit in distributing presidential pork—and how they do it. The result is an illuminating and highly original take on presidential power and public policy.

About the Author:



John Hudak is a fellow in Governance Studies at Brookings. Before joining Brookings, he served as the program director and as a graduate fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions.


Review:

"Presidents play Congress' game and win. Presidential Pork clearly demonstrates that presidents are as willing as Members of Congress to pilfer the pork barrel and claim credit for public projects. Hudak's book helps us reimagine the president as a strategic electoral player, intent on using public funds through the organization and authority of the executive office to gain an electoral foothold."―Brandon Rottinghaus, University of Houston



" Presidential Pork offers a fascinating look at past presidents and an intriguing look into the current president. It is not too early to start asking how history will judge this president. Is he the power hungry despot that Republicans are demonizing? Or is he the inept manager Democrats are quietly groaning about who can't even use the power of the presidency? Hudak's sequel to this story should be as interesting as this book."―Elaine C. Kamarck, Founding Director of the Center for Effective Public Management at the Brookings Institution. As a senior staffer in the White House she created the National Performance Review, the largest government reform effort in the last half of the twentieth century.
