"The Republican majority promised after the 1994 elections to manage the House in a way that fostered 'deliberative democracy,' which they defined as the 'full and free airing of conflicting opinions through hearings, debates, and amendments.' They also pledged in their Contract with America to 'restore accountability to Congress' and to 'end its cycle of scandal and disgrace.' Instead of sticking to their word, they have broken their promises, betrayed the public trust, and abused their power. Specifically, they have undermined the ethics of the House, abandoned any principle of procedural fairness or democratic accountability, and overreached into private family matters and the federal judiciary. "

Anything else to add?
Well, Pelosi's got plenty...

whatever happened to "the adults" being in charge?
