Charlie "I didn't know I had to pay taxes" Rangle should be booted out of his committee and somebody needs to look at the ethics or lack there of in this Democrat joke of a congress.

Next we have this: CNN's Crowley: Obama Team Wanted 'Horrific' Wall Street Headlines

And we have Nancy Pelosi buying up and partnering with alternative energy when she has influence on the vote.

Discraceful.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, when asked Tuesday whether Democrats bear some of the responsibility regarding the current crisis on Wall Street, had a one-word answer: “No.”

She isn't responsible for the ethics of her party, she isn't responsbile for economic issues, she bears no responsiblity for anything...

so you can't blame the majority leader for anything, as she isn't responsible for anything...except that minimum wage thing. she'll take credit for that.
