22. Exactly

Republicans have no political courage whatsoever. You'd think the possibility of losing an upcoming election was the end of the world.

In Australia, when they passed strict gun legislation, members of Parliament knew supporting the bill was a huge political risk, but they voted for it anyway. When asked about it, one legislator who lost his seat said he had not regrets, because it was the right thing to do.

There is life after congress and if politicians aren't willing to take a risk by doing what is right, perhaps they are in the wrong occupation. It is not like any of them will starve if he have to leave DC.
