Impeachment is an option

Friday, July 06, 2007 by Dave Winer.

A picture named think.gifGeneral William Odom: "Congress clearly and indisputably has two powers over the executive: the power of the purse and the power to impeach. Instead of using either, members of congress are wasting their time discussing feckless measures like a bill that 'de-authorizes the war in Iraq.' That is toothless unless it is matched by a cut-off of funds." Permalink to this paragraph

We're never going to get change in this country until we start routinely using the power to impeach and remove officials who aren't serving the interests of the country. Permalink to this paragraph
