And by "watched them" they mean Congress, not just repubs...who reversed it when they got called out by media and public response...so for all those who kept insisting during the election season that there's no difference between the dems and the repubs, this is proof otherwise...the dems are the ones that created the independent ethics oversight committee, even though they didnt agree with or like some of the results that followed...but the first thing the repubs did when they got control was to eliminate this independent ethics oversight committee (not create a jobs bill or etc.)...and I'm sure they'll try to slip eliminating it into another bill when the press and public aren't looking..."fasten your seat belts, it's gonna be a bumpy ride"...
