Interest In Ethics Dies In Congress

Well folks, it looks as though the interest that Congress once had in reforming ethics is now gone.

It has now been 103 days since Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to bribing member of Congress and since that time, there has been no ethics reform whatsoever.

Instead, the Republicans elected a man who is a K Street insider, John Boehner, as their new Majority Leader in the House. After he was elected, Boehner made it clear he was against ethics reform.

However, the people of this nation are fed up with the Republican's inaction. They want change.

The American people deserve better.

I am confident that Senator Ford and the new Democratic Majority will take the lead on this issue come 2007.
