President Barack Obama may have implemented the most sweeping legislative agenda since LBJ, but that agenda is being challenged. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Cal., the likely new chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform plans to broaden his own committee’s agenda, including hundreds of hearings and investigations of the bank bailout, the fiscal stimulus package and possibly healthcare reform, Politico reports.

Issa also plans to name aggressive conservative Reps. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, Patrick McHenry of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio to chair some of his subcommittees. And he intends to refer some inquiries to other committees, thereby enlisting other chairmen in the cause too.
