In the years since 9/11, I have grown to distrust the House of Representatives & come to think if it as the major stumbling block to the promise of American democracy. The idea of giving the elected bozos even a nano-particle more power is abhorrent! Was it only yesterday they attempted to destroy the Office of Ethical Oversight? I rest my case!!! They cannot be trusted to do anything that benefits anyone but themselves & their wealthy cronies! *** PLUS: They are so clueless that they thought their personal popularity would override the general mood of hatred of Congress & support for the soon-to-be president's agenda of stopping the total obnoxiousness of Congress. In summation: they are too full of hubris to be given additional power!
