Except for continuing to be re-elected, Congresswoman Pelosi is a failure.
But speaking on Fox News Sunday, Pelosi said she wants Congress to consider repealing tax cuts on those who make over $250,000 immediately and is pushing for a congressional investigation into whether the Bush administration illegally fired federal prosecutors two years ago.
via Pelosi, Obama disagree on tax cuts, Bush investigations « – Blogs from CNN.com.
Now with only days left in the Bush administration, she wants investigations. I happen to agree with her, but I do not want that enabling, pandering, self-serving Speaker of the House involved. She kept her head in the sand and now she wants to do this for no other reason to claim credit. She’s a real politician.
I think that the tax cuts should be reviewed for their effectiveness, I don’t know if they do work or not. That review should be from economists that are recognized by both sides of the aisle. If the tax cuts are good for the economy they should stay. If they don’t help, they should go. But the economy has to be the driver not some fake conservative philosophy or some fake liberal one either.
I also think the Bush administration should be investigated. It appears that instead of looking at the law to solve problems, they looked for reasons to justify breaking the law. That does need investigation and if people were found to be breaking the law they must be held accountable as a warning to people in the future.
But also investigate the role of prominent politicians who must have known better. Pelosi and Reid should not get a pass.
