Sunday Roundup

This week, a day after Democrats voted down an attempt to remove scandal-plagued Ways and Means Committee chairman Charlie Rangel from his post, the House Ethics Committee voted unanimously to expand its investigation of him. Nancy Pelosi, who promised to "drain the swamp" and create "the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history," is, instead, sticking by Rangel. Talk about tone deaf. The Democrats have to make it clear to America's beleaguered middle class that they don't believe there are two sets of rules: one for the power players of Wall Street and Washington, and one for everybody else. Congress' approval rating is at 21 percent, a 10 point drop over the last month. If the Democrats want to see it hit single digits, by all means, keep Charlie Rangel as chairman. WATCH: On ABC's This Week, Arianna calls for Rangel to step down.
