Maybe eventually they'll deal with real reform...

Maybe it's just me but when you hear the title, "The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee" you think of a group designed to oversee government and suggest reforms that will make government more efficient. Less costly, of greater benefit to taxpayers.

So, what's the latest from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee? This:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A House committee announced Tuesday it will examine how the Pentagon ended up spreading false stories about the capture of Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch and the death of NFL star-turned-soldier Pat Tillman.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is scheduled to take up those cases in an April 24 hearing, the panel announced Tuesday. The hearing will feature testimony from Lynch and relatives of Tillman, who was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004.

The House committee "will examine why inaccurate accounts of these two incidents were disseminated, the sources and motivations for the accounts, and whether the appropriate administration officials have been held accountable," its leaders said in a written statement Tuesday.

Hopefully someday they'll start dealing with No Child Left Behind...now that would take weeks of hearings if they really wanted to create reform...
