Several Dems Call for Rangel to Give Up Chairman Post

The Politico reports:

After months of holding ranks, Democrats are finally turning on House Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) in the wake of an ethics committee finding that he violated House rules by accepting a Caribbean junket. 

Early Friday, Rep. Paul Hodes (D-N.H.) told POLITICO he wants Rangel to quit his powerful committee post — and that was quickly followed by similar statements from a pair of deep south Democrats, Mississippi Rep. Gene Taylor and Alabama Rep. Bobby Bright. 

Health care on the ropes and the Democratic Ways and Means chairman under a cloud of scandal. The parallels to 1994 keep getting eerier.
