    Waxman's primer on legilation

    Henry Waxman is easier to respect than to like. His book is a useful primer on how the legislative process works and he has some important reforms under his belt. There is a certain element of self-congratulation in the book, but based on his performance on CNN in hearings, he is an incisive interrogator and no-one to cross. He believes that government can accomplish good things with a positive effect on ordinary people and regrets the loss of confidence and element of irrationality becoming more prevalent in current debate. He has not been able to make any headway against the powerful NRA lobby, but has achieved the bureaucratic regulation of tobacco by the flawed FDA. Worthwhile and earnest in tone.

    Henry Waxman a Man of Honor

    This book was the best read for me in July 09. The books describes in detail how and why Congress works as it does. I learn a lot from his book and the process of legislation. I recommend this book. Congress needs more people like Henry Waxman in Congress and less Repugs that only work to provide comfort to their Lobbyist!

    Garbage In; Garbage Out

    If Waxman was at all honest, he would have written about cowering to a party line rather than voting your conscience; he would have written about the power of special-interest dollars and how that easily sways how a politician votes. Heck, he would have covered how disgusted America is at the entire political spectrum, party affiliation aside, and the arrogance of Washington. Until he does, this book is good to take camping in the off-chance you run out of toilet paper on the trail.
