(AP Photo/Lauren Victoria Burke)(CNSNews.com) – The embattled chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), is involved in what may be the most important fight of his political career.

    Rangel met privately Monday night with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and discussed the status of his chairmanship of the committee that oversees the nation's tax laws.

    In a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, according to the New York Times, Rangel's lawyer, Lanny Davis, said that Pelosi supported Rangel staying in the chairmanship.

    While I'm on my roll, these jokers are the only ones in the world who decide their own punishment. When you see a guy with tax problems sitting in the Tax-Writing Chairman seat we see the problem with Washington. Unfortunately, this isn't something the president or VP can fix.

    This is where we the people need to take our government back.

    I agree, it was no change to include the pressure it finally took to get the speaker of the house, newt to step down. She is an example of politics as usual... Shame on her! :thumbs:

    So you're right about not having an ethical congress I just don't believe it's exclusively a democratic problem.

    What else can we expect from the culture of corruption in the Democratic Party.

    LeBuick...here we agree 100%!!!
    I'm about to take Glenn Beck's advice and get me a pitchfork and torches for the rest of my family b/c that appears to be what we need to take our country back.
    It is easy to focus on the White House...but that changes every 4-8 years; we o alsneed a change down the street from there in the halls of Congress. How many of them have been there way too long? How about in your state's delegation (for everyone, not just LeBuick)...has anyone over stayed their welcome?

    These people don't have a 9% approval rating for nothing.

    When libs mention any distortions they see McCain as saying they mention it alone. When their candidate is brought up as doing the same thing all of the sudden all politicians are that way.
