Bi-partisan commission to get at the truth my a**
To set the scene for the Republicans' "bipartisan" commission: Senate sources tell us that Democrats weren't invited to join in the announcement of the "bipartisan" commission yesterday, nor were they even formerly notified until 4:40 pm -- just minutes before it went public.
Nancy Pelosi via susanhu:
"For nearly a week, I have urged the Speaker to establish a bipartisan task force that is truly bipartisan, made up of equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans, has real authority to cut congressional red tape, and would have bipartisan subpoena power."
"The partisan proposal that Republican leaders outlined yesterday is completely unacceptable. House Democrats will not participate in a sham that is just the latest example of congressional Republicans being the foxes guarding the President's hen house."(Booman Tribune)
