39. This has nothing to do with "cowardice". It's deeply malevolent and cynical.

This fits in with the rethugs pattern over the past 10 years+. McConnell is doing this because the stated aim of the GOP since the Reagan era has been to "reduce the size of government to the point it can be drowned in the bathtub", as Grover Norquist advocated. They don't care about anyone other than the <1%ers - their so-called donor class. Everyone else can go pound sand. They don't give a shit that personnel are working without pay. They don't care about those furloughed, as they'd just as soon they never went back to work. Miss a mortgage payment? Not their problem. The mopes should have saved more. Veterans needing medical care? Who cares? That's their problem. Besides, they shouldn't have allowed themselves to be wounded in that IED trap. Big deal. There are people standing in line to take their places. Next!
