Democrats Won't Pass Earmark Reform

Meet the new boss...same as the old boss. It dies in the Senate, which isn't exactly "swarming" with a new Democrat majority.

Hence, the-talk-of-the-town "symbolic" voting in the House. Quote of the day, from Turbin Durbin:

Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., also said the DeMint provision was "unworkable" because it was so broad it could be applied to thousands of projects included in federal spending bills.
No sh*t, sherlock. That's the entire point.

Oh, and the minimum wage is now hiked...except for certain businesses in Pelosi's home district. So she flat-out lied, pissed off Charlie Rangel over taxes who she is now at loggerheads with, and the culture of corruption continues unabated. This time, its Prime Grade-A stamped with a (D).
