Once again, the House fails to make any real moves toward lobbying reform, and toward getting all of the loose money out of Washington. And once again, they do it in such a way to make it APPEAR that they did something useful.
While these changes in rules are slightly better (enforcing the disclosure of the programs and who sponsored the bill) it really does nothing for long-term reform.
Washington isn't listening, and shows that they will not change unless forced. They're hoping that they can get their soundbite about their minor changes, and everyone will be too distracted by the Wars to follow up. Yet another reason to remove the incumbancy during this election, and to get your candidates to sign up to a Congressional Reform pledge before they are elected.
