Calling Out the GOP’s ‘Surrender Congress’

After taking control of Congress — the House in 2011 and the U.S. Senate in 2015 — Republicans have done nothing but accommodate. They’ve caved on the debt ceiling, on the budget, on Obamacare, Obamatrade, on immigration, on Planned Parenthood – on everything. Far from reasserting their authority and reining in spending – they have engaged in chronic capitulation, most recently approving a reckless two-year budget plan.
