Calling America’s political leaders cowards is becoming commonplace. How about disgraceful? Stronger words could easily be used, especially after yesterday when our congressional “leaders” stood silently on the sidelines, hands in pockets. And to what end? What agenda is more important than our country? Their silence gave us the answer.  Congress was designed as a check on power.  Not as a bunch of sycophantic suck-ups. Is this the subservient body the founding fathers intended?  Ezra Klein at Vox says NO.
