1. Dems Find Way Around Their Minority Status, Launch Investigations

Now this is what I call good old fashioned Democratic ingenuity, the kind you learn from growing up in working class families where evcerything is handed to you on a silver spoon.

Democratic senators to convene aggressive policy committee hearings

Democrats plan aggressive policy investigations

By John Byrne | RAW STORY Editor

Democratic senators plan an array of policy committee hearings in which they plan to resume an aggressive congressional oversight role on Bush policies and decisions, RAW STORY has learned.

The committee the Senate Democratic Policy Committee is a longstanding caucus committee of Democrats which was created in the 1940s. It will, Democrats believe, allow them a platform from which to conduct hearings and investigative action despite the fact that Republicans have an edge in both chambers of Congress.

On Friday, Democrats will hold their first policy meeting on Social Security. But this meeting, a top Senate aide told RAW STORY, is only the tip of the iceberg.

Waxman: Democrats' Eliot Ness
by David Corn



It's nothing new, says Representative Henry Waxman. For decades--literally--this Democrat from the Westside of Los Angeles has mounted high-profile investigations and hearings while churning out sharp-edged reports: on toxic emissions, the tobacco industry, pesticides in drinking water. But during George W. Bush's first term as President, Waxman, the senior Democrat on the Government Reform Committee, established himself as the Democrats' chief pursuer of purported wrongdoing within the Bush Administration. He has mounted a series of "special investigations"--of Halliburton, Enron, the flu vaccine crisis, conflicts of interest at the Department of Homeland Security, national missile defense. He has produced reports on secrecy in the Bush Administration, misleading prewar assertions made by Bush officials about Iraq's WMDs, Bush's politicization of science. And he has won considerable media attention for his efforts.
