During a Democratic Party caucus on Iraq, House Speaker-elect Nancy
Pelosi, Majority Leader-elect Steny Hoyer, and Caucus Chair Rahm Emanuel
briefly addressed reporters, announcing that the days of rubber-stamp
budget authorization for Iraq are over. Pelosi said that "Truman-like"
investigations of fraud and mismanagement of funds would take place.
Following the press conference, we caught up to Representatives Lynn
Woolsey (D-Calif.) and Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), who gave us their take on what
needs to be done.
