Election year 2014 is upon us, and the time has come to call our representatives to account. In 2013 Republicans in Congress delivered a shameful, unprecedented spectacle of disregard for the American people that cannot be excused or forgotten. This is no longer a matter of a few Tea Party wacko birds.
The government shutdown and foolhardy hostaging of the debt ceiling proved that anti-Democratic extremism has become the platform of the Republican Party leadership. We now know exactly what we’re dealing with when it comes to the GOP: a pack of thugs unwilling to participate in the democratic process.
