Reform on the March


House of Representatives passes tough new ethics package. I think the quantity of good legislation that Nancy Pelosi's been able to move through the House of Representatives has tended to go underappreciated by liberals. "The new congress" elected in 2006 has in many ways been a disappointment, but those disappointments have overwhelmingly taken place in the Senate where the rules and the numbers simply aren't on the side of progressive change.
