They Have No Shame

The Huffington Post reports:
On Wednesday, the Judiciary Committee was forced to cancel a hearing as was the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) tweeted today : "Disappointed. Rs refusing to allow hearings today. Had to cancel my oversight hearing on police training contracts in Afghanistan."
Sen. Mark Udall also complained that he had to delay a hearing on the cause of Western forest fires.

Republicans just have no shame. This is no less than an abdication of their duties as representatives of the citizens of their respective states. The United States Congress has a job to do. If they really are going to refuse to govern, then the honorable thing to do would be to resign en masse. How can they continue to justify their lavish salaries, their gold-played government health care, and their expensive pensions when they won't even do their freaking job?
