The disastrous Fast and Furious operation armed dangerous drug lords in Mexico and directly resulted in the Agent Terry’s death.

Last night, years of House oversight efforts yielded three big breakthroughs. Here’s a quick rundown of what happened:

The Obama administration’s pattern of obstruction is a disservice to the American people, and an affront to the Terry family and all those law enforcement officers put at risk by this failed operation.

The Obama administration has a bad habit: it seems to never want the American people to know what it’s really up to, and it seeks to avoid accountability at all costs.

“Unemployment has never been this high for this long after a recession,” says Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) in the Weekly Republican Address. And yet, “the president and his party think now is a good time to raise taxes on small businesses” and destroy more than 700,000 American jobs.

A new report sheds some light on Operation Fast & Furious, the flawed gun-smuggling operation run by President Obama’s Department of Justice that resulted in the death of border agent Brian Terry.

Speaker John Boehner told CBS News the president’s health care law is driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire.

During a speech on the House floor today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) called on the House to support a resolution holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over subpoenaed documents related to the Fast & Furious operation.

The family of Border Agent Brian Terry and the American people “have a right to know what happened” in “Fast & Furious.”
