Ethics Truce Gone
Good riddance. The "ethics truce," where neither House Democrats nor Republicans would accuse the others of violating ethics regulations, is:
- Bad Policy. Ethics charges need to be aired;
- Bad for Democrats. Republicans are more corrupt than Democrats, and the corruption is more integral to their normal course of operation;
- Bad for the Country. The more tangled the House is in bitter recrimination, the less evil shit the Republican leadership can force through.
