Thirty-eight white men, most who hail from the eleven Confederate states, have been holding the Republican party, the United States Congress, and the entire country hostage by refusing to compromise on almost any issue. These men consistently block their own party’s leadership, oppose the President on every policy he proposes and ultimately, spit in the faces of U.S. voters, voting against legislation which is strongly supported by large majorities of American citizens.
