It is not an accident that there are so many Republicans — John Boehner, Jeb Hensarling, and Ted Poe — in this, and that the Democrats — Brian Baird and Bobby Scott — are Democrats who are sometimes gettable on Republican votes.

Transparency is an issue that Republicans will win every time in the war of ideas, and the House Democrats are already uncomfortable.

Just last week, Blue Dogs and liberals like Peter DaFazio asked for more regular order. The Democrats are exposed. The Democrats know it.

Now it is time for Republicans to stand up and win this fight once and for all.
