Issa vs. Waxman -- the Saga (of Sorts)

Congressman Darrel Issa (R-Vista) serves as the current Oversight Committee Chairman.

Instead of wasting time going after steroid abuse in baseball, instead of investigating lead in toys, and instead of partisan witch-hunts which place him before the camera and serve the interests of trial attorneys, Issa has pursued waste in the Post office, the IRS abuses of conservative groups, the flagrant lapses of security which doomed Benghazi to terrorist attacks, and also the infamous gun-running operation Fast and Furious.

Issa has also investigated the federal subsidies to green tech companies, including Solyndra.

And he had some terse words for Congressman Henry Waxman, demanding to know whether the Westside legislator had any connections or financial interest in the company.

Waxman denied any corrupt connections with the industry, yet his weak regret "I'm sorry Solyndra happened" was a slap in the face to the voters and taxpayers in this country.

Darrel Issa -- leading the fight, from which Waxman took flight.
