Plenty of disturbing things happening at state, federal level.
The end justifies the means. One example is gerrymandering. Pennsylvania Republicans lost on this issue in all levels of the courts, so their response is to call for the impeachment of state Supreme Court judges or seek a change in the way we pick judges.
On the federal level, a Supreme Court position becomes vacant under President Barack Obama, and Senate Republicans stonewall his nominee for almost a year. Republicans are willing to hold children hostage just so they can get their border wall that we will pay for. I have never seen so many high-level Republicans run from their own party.
The hypocrisy is outrageous. The GOP's family values are gone, and its calls for fiscal responsibility a joke. The lies and deceptions will continue. The Republicans ignore their supposed values to get a judge, a wall and an immoral president who gives the wealthiest people tax cuts that will never trickle down.
I did not agree with most of Sen. John McCain's political views, but there is no doubt he was a true American hero with values and principles few could equal. The treatment of this hero by President Donald Trump is a disgrace to our American principles by a petty and immoral person.
Republicans' actions consistently appalling
