Congress Pushes Green M&Ms As Cure for Cancer

The joke that ethics "reform" has already become
My brother called me yesterday. He’s not in politics – he’s a doctor at a public hospital in Denver. He told me he happened to be watching television, and heard about the Democrats 100 Hours agenda – and specifically, about the ethics “reforms” they are proposing. I put “reforms” in quotes because, from his tone, I could tell he was making the quoting motion with his hands when he said the word. He was appalled that Democrats were actually bragging about banning things that most people can’t believe are actually legal in the first place.

“What are we going to hear next?,” he asked. “Are they going to have a press conference bragging about a new bill that bans politicians from murdering each other?”
