Rangel Survives Another Attempt To Remove His Chairmanship

Democrats continue to protect the detestable Rep. Charles Rangel and maintain his position as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, despite numerous ethics investigations and his ongoing tax problems.

Never mind that Rangel is responsible for the operation of the Committee which sets tax policy.

Rep. John Carter, a Republican sought to have Rangel removed as Chairman. The House voted 242-157 to defeat Carter's resolution. Carter had also introduced legislation that would establish the Rangel rule - providing all taxpayers with the same benefits afforded Rangel by the IRS.

Democrats continue to insist that they don't stand for corruption and are highly ethical, but their actions show otherwise. They show a complete and utter disdain for all Americans by standing behind tax cheats. They show that there are two Americas - the one that the rest of us have to pay our taxes, and the other in which high profile Democrats don't have to.

In fact, Rangel was selected to be on the Conference Committee to take part in the negotiations to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the porkfest.

Once again Democrats show that they have no interest in weeding out the corrupt and unethical from their numbers. They're only interested in expanding their power.
