Obama Signals Desire to Address Earmarks

File Photo
In Rep. Greg Walden’s Republican response, he said the GOP is planning for a culture change in Washington, D.C.

Too often, accountability counts for nothing, and transparency for even less, and common sense well its an endangered species, he said. Thats why our leader, John Boehner, has pledged to run the House of Representatives differently than its been run in the past by both parties.

He noted the GOP Transition Team includes incoming Members who were elected on the mantra that they would come to the nations capital to change Congress. He also plugged the GOP move to begin installing cameras in the Rules Committee hearing room and other measures that would improve transparency in the legislative process.

Weve got the peoples business to do, and the people have the right to watch that business being done, he said.
