Republicans in U.S. Senate Oppose Ethics Reform

Republicans lost their Congressional majorities because the American people were fed up with the corruption in Republican Washington. Apparently Republicans in the Senate didn't get the message. Senate Republicans are blocking Congress from moving forward on the most important lobbying and ethics reforms in decades.

The line item veto is a pretext, and it is obvious to everyone what has happened. Senate Republicans have decided this ethics bill was too strong for their taste. Lobbying and ethics reform is not dead. Senate Republicans have the opportunity to reconsider opposing reform, and they will have another chance to support this vital legislation.
