Rep. Alan Grayson is ruining it for everybody else
Don't you hate when a do-gooder new kid comes in and shows up everyone else at work?
We had this whole post-partisan mellow worked out — ran like clockwork through the 110th Congress — and this guy comes in and doesn't play ball:
Well, one of our fundamental constitutional responsibilities as Congress, is to make sure that the government's business is conducted properly. That's called oversight. And, I think the expenditure of $4000 for every man, woman and child in this country, is something deserving of some degree of congressional oversight.
If they won't tell us who got the money, and they won't tell us what they got in return for the money, then I think we might be in dereliction of our duties. We need to find out.
