THE HOUSE

The talking points, reproduced below, suggest that Democrats sought to derail the ethics process, though it was Republicans who forced through a controversial ethics page in January that gave the Republican majority the upper hand on a committee that was supposed to be bipartisan.

The talking points are reproduced below. RAW STORY has also obtained a letter sent by GOP speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) complaining in a similar vein about the Democrats' moves surrounding the ethics impasse.
