WaPo: Blame the Democrats

I'm not sure how real it was, but the WaPo claims there was a moment on Wednesday when the House had a chance to enact genuine lobbying reforms. Whether real or not, the reforms the WaPo liked lost on a 216-213 vote.

The GOP opposed the measure by a 212-16 margin.

The Dems voted for it, by a count of 197-4.

So who killed it, the Democrats or the Republicans?

The WaPo titled their piece, The Feckless Four: How a small group of Democrats helped the GOP kill real lobbying reform. And put the focus (and the onus) squarely on the four Democrats, rather than the 212 Republicans.

'Nuff said.
