This is just getting better and better. The oversight came about after lobbyist Jack Abramoff got convicted of bribery a few years ago. The House now wants to operate in a more secretive way without the obstruction of ethics review by an independent source. You can't make this stuff up.
Interesting that Trump has already made a pretty negative statement about the action from his "own" party. Not particularly surprising, to be sure, as he has never been buddy-buddy with Republicans and it will be very interesting to see the result of Trump being Trump instead of Trump being another party flak.
Let the games begin!
LOL That didn't last long, did it?

Yeah. I guess they thought nobody was watching. They have by their own accounts made it known that it is bad legislation. I guess they will come back to this when the time is right and the negative spin on its powers are ripe.
Well, I must admit, I'm impressed with Trump's role in the reversal of this action. There may be a ray of hope after all. We'll have to see what happens next. The Republicans do seem awfully full of themselves to have started this way. But the one thing about Congress is that they are often their own worst enemies.
I learned months ago to hear what Trump has to say first, before anything by the bureaucrats' little circus acts. I believe Trump means what he says.

Odd that the House was able to pass 60 bills repealing Obamacare when Obama was president but can't pass one when Trump is president.
