Representatives we send to Washington are expected to govern. That is not an unreasonable expectation. In addition, they don't seem to know the difference between a bill presented for their passage, or not, and a law that has been enacted -- and upheld by the Supreme Court.

We should expect them to be working for the American people -- common good.

The fear of losing a position by catering to the radical few is not leadership and is certainly no profile in courage.
