#SpinelessGOP: Republicans Run Scared From Their Constituents

Feb 06, 2017

The first two weeks of Trump’s administration have sparked a wave of protests against a Republican Congress that has proven too spineless to stand up to him. Now, GOP Senators and Congressmen are running scared from their own outraged constituents.

From stripping health care from 32 million Americans, to repealing financial reform that will benefit millionaires and billionaires, to supporting Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, cowardly Republicans have embraced Trump’s dangerous agenda. But while House and Senate Republicans cower, count on voters to hold the #SpinelessGOP accountable.

Here’s just a sample of the brutal coverage of the #SpinelessGOP:
