    Finally. This is a legitimate and important area of congressional oversight. I can't imagine why this wasn't done years ago.

    No, it will be spent on the latest, greatest excuse for a witchhunt.

    Don't take my word for it.

    Take the word of these prominent conservatives and republicans:

    -Larry Kudlow: Conservative economist, CNBC cable show host
    -Wall Street Journal: America's leading conservative-leaning mainstream newspaper
    -Stuart Bowen: President Bush's special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction
    -Susan Collins: Republican senator from Maine


    Republicans used to claim to be for fiscal responsibility and fiscal prudence. Are suggesting that either you don't care about this, or that its all just some fake partisan theatrics?

    Incorrect.

    It's the government investigating private contractors who were given lucrative contracts involving taxpayer money.

    Right...Like he said...

    The Government.

    A section of government is investigating another section of the government, for their awarding of those lucrative contracts to the private contractors...some of which, members of the administration involved in planning the Iraq War themselves sat on the boards of, or were executives of.

    How anyone wouldn't consider that a conflict of interest, is completely beyond me.
