Is The Republican Party 'Born Again Hard'?
Let's hope to hell so

Golly gee, Ma... whatever happened to all that transparency and bi-partisanship that The Zero promised us? Hmmm...

Here's some of the article from Breitbart.com; (Emphasis mine) Democrats stop GOP effort to start ethics inquiry

WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democrats on Tuesday stopped a Republican plan to force a campaign finance inquiry that likely would have investigated several influential Democrats. It was the eighth time since late February that the Republican move was halted.

One of the biggest recipients has been the chairman of the defense appropriations subcommittee, Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania.

The vote was 215-182 to stop consideration of a GOP resolution to initiate a House ethics committee inquiry. It called for an investigation into campaign contributions to House lawmakers by recipients of pet project money and their lobbyists.

Twenty-nine Democrats voted with the Republicans on Tuesday in an unsuccessful effort to keep the GOP initiative alive and allow the investigation to begin. The first time the resolution was considered, in late February, 17 Democrats supported it.
