Leaders of the House ethics committee (Democratic) investigating another Democratic Charles Rangel, chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.

The IRS is looking into his not reporting income. Also, remember that he black and like another black man cold cash Jefferson, they are innocent until proven guilty. This idea only applies to Democratic and can only be use if you are taken the people for a ride.

If you are a Republican then you go direct to jail. When you are a Democrat then it is not required to have any ethics and if you are, black then what are ethics needed for.

Rangel is under intense scrutiny for a series of alleged ethics lapses, including failure to disclose income on real estate property and raising money for an educational center bearing his name.

Rep. Alan Mollohan of West Virginia, a Democratic who is under federal investigation for alleged earmarking improprieties, also voted with his colleagues to help Rangel retain his chairmanship and avoid an ethics investigation.

Does any one see our great one Bobby Scott you know the one that looking out for you who district is made-up of 80% black. Could this be the reason he elected each year because he black and the entire voter are black. They must close there eye when they vote for this trash.

By the way, he has said he will increase taxes when Obama is elected by $300 Trillion dollars. He a Democrat and he can only hope to keep his hand in your pocket just like the trash man Bobby Scott.

This is so beyond the pale.

The Democrats are so corrupt that they've literally transcended the cliche and truly are "beneath contempt" at this point.

One wonders what the Dream Prophet Obama has to say on this matter.

And the great Profit say's, It must be all Bush's fault because we Democrats will help the poor people and steal the money from the rich to do it.
We are your saviour...but behind your back we are just as crooked,egotiscal,elite and lie as just like those mean old Republicans that we so dearly hate while blaming everything on them.

If any of these people, Democrat or Republican, have committed a crime that can be proven, they need to be given the punishment prescribed by law.
Until then, Democrat of Republican, they are innocent under the laws of this nation, and each and every one of them should be treated as such.

This why I wonder about all this change we hear about. It seems Obama has voted in lock step with the current Democrats in congress. So who exactly are the members of the old politics he seems to say he wil change?

He seems to vote with some of the longest serving members of Congress! Yet to listen to him speak these same people are the problem!

So, I really do not understand what change it is he is talking about!

Charlie, didn't you know that paying high taxes is patriotic? Ask Joe Biden and Obama.

As time goes on and more corruption within the Democratic party is exposed, it's becoming easier to understand why the party backed Obama ,(the "corrupt politician" from Chicago) during the primary. Birds of a feather flock together....

You know, it doesn't matter who votes for what, in Congress. The main problem is that the American voter will vote the same way in November as they have in every other Election.
When will you all realize that America is responsible for these people being in power. I believe that is YOU and I, we are responsible for voting for deadbeats and we get a deadbeat Congress, and then we complain bitterly. Change or be damned!!

Did no one else notice that the lead sentence of this article does not match anything else in the rest of the text? I would like to know the names of the worthless six who voted to shield Rangel from the consequences of his tax evasion. It's bad enough that the Democrats protected Rangel, but no Republican should have joined in this abortion. To change the subject to Republicans who are under investigation is a distraction.

For example, the accusations against John Doolittle, which remain unproven, pale in comparison with what Rangel has had to admit. As chairman of the committee that writes the tax laws the rest of us must comply with, Rangel's conduct in this area should be above reproach. That 226 members of Congress have voted to keep him in place is a national disgrace.

Rangel and his party lose all credibility when they ask americans to pay more taxes to be patriotic while they turn around don't pay the taxes they are legally required to pay and give so little to charity in the case of Biden. This is why Congress is so out of touch with average americans who are living pacycheck to paycheck. All we ask is honest government and we can't even get that from Rangel who has no fear of losing his job because his district is ALMOST 100% Democratic. We don't have Democracy when these guys run unopposed in primaries and are in a district which is 100% there own party. Amazing that Congress has a low approval rating, yet majority of them will return next year. If this country really wants change, they would stop sending crooks back year after year.

Here, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of what a black Democrat looks like. They don't pay their taxes, thinking the white people or the rich people owe them something, because this black Democrat thinks he's better than everyone else, so thusly isn't subjected to the same rules as the rest of us. And then, when he gets called out on it, he uses his fellow thugish Democrats to make him look better. After they make him look better, he tells a lie to make the people enforcing the rules (because they understand this man isn't better than anyone else) look bad, and himself the victim. Lying sacks of shit is all a Democrat is people, and the sooner you realize it the better you'll be!
