Just when you wonder what Congress is not going to do next, Speaker of the House John Boehner musters up enough courage to try to get the facts on the White House’s role in covering up the

Democrats, who are in a perpetual state of being offended, responded as expected. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) fretted, “The amount of money they can spend is undefined and can be unlimited.” This marks the first time a Democrat cared how much
