Ron Lowe: House GOP — more of same

Daily, there are stories of terrorists around the world holding people hostage. What about America’s own political terrorists, the Republicans holding the nation hostage again with the threat of defunding the Department of Homeland Security? No headlines of America’s political terrorists.

Republicans held the nation hostage as they almost pushed the country over a fiscal cliff. Remember? Then Republicans, playing to their extremist base, shut down the U.S. government. Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans promised to change their ways after the election — not even — they’re still carrying on the same as they ever did.
