In a stunning display of political cowardice, 39 House Democrats caved to Republican fearmongering and voted with the GOP in favor of a bill that sabotages the ACA.That they would desert the President of the United States in attacks on his signature legislative achievement is no real surprise. Republicans have been out to destroy his legacy since his first Inauguration. When John "The Crybaby" can depend on nearly 40 members of the Democratic minority to not only desert the leader of their own political party, while simultaneously joining Republicans in denying health coverage to millions of needy Americans, it may just be the time to prune some partisan pear trees.
If Democrats don't stand for the principles of the party they're elected to represent, maybe they should try their hands at being elected by their Tea Party compatriots.
Unfortunately, the number of surprises on this list are small. Other than Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, and Krysten Sinema of Arizona, not one of these turncoats surprises me. It's a shame.
