Maxine Waters represents a lot that’s wrong in Congress.
You might remember her from the YouTube video where she calls herself a socialist and then thinks better of it. She was complaining of high gas prices back then, but she’s kind of quiet about it now.
Congress was supposed to be investigating her on an ethics violation. In the midst of the worst banking crisis in 80 years, Waters allegedly intervened on behalf of a bank that her husband was involved with.
One of the most strident and partisan members of Congress, even the New York Times is asking what happened to the ethics charge relating to the bank. Long suspected of being venial and corrupt, it would be nice to see Maxine have to answer hard questions.

If you have a chance pick up the book: Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism Who Gives, Who Doesn't, and Why It Matters. Written by Arthur Brooks, it looks at charitable giving and comes down heavily against government charity.
Last year Brooks published The Battle: How the Fight between Free Enterprise and Big Government Will Shape America's Future which argues that elite statists are trying to use American economic problems to crush capitalism.
Both can be picked up at Amazon.
