McCotter Rejects GOP Policy Group

One GOP aide said the criticism stems from the policy committee’s generally ambiguous mission. As a result, the committee has functioned differently under each person elected to lead it.

“Everyone seems to have an opinion about what the policy committee should do,” the aide said.

McCotter is a staunch conservative, but he has bucked the party on several key votes. For instance, he is running for re-election in a Detroit-area district devastated by the collapse of the auto industry, and he voted for the auto industry bailout that was opposed by GOP leaders.
