Description

The stated mission of the Department of Commerce is as straightforward as its name: to "encourage, serve and promote" U.S. business. Still, some members of Congress are so disgusted with the commerce department that they want to shut it down. One of its former secretaries says it has no reason for being. Even a former senior Clinton appointee at commerce concedes the agency has become a "dumping ground" for people owed jobs by the White House for their political help.
