Alice Rivlin is also a big donor to Democrats. In the present and previous cycle, the Brookings Institute economist donated over $47,000 to various Democrats. For that matter, so is Ann Fudge, who gave over $36,000. In contrast, Stern gave less than $6,000. (Cote only made one donation to a partisan recipient, a Republican, for $1000.) Is this change we can believe in?
But the larger problem is that Stern represents the problem that Congress faces in making tough budget decisions — not the solution. He has a vested interest in keeping federal employees on the job, as his union mainly represents public-sector workers. If this budget commission recommended cuts to staff, his union will lose dues — which will reduce the amount of funds available for his union to donate to Democrats. Public-sector unions gave 89% of their donations to Democrats in 2008, and so far in this cycle, 91%.
