The Tea Party-infected, most dysfunctional Congress in American history sank to an unfathomable depth when the gridlocked Senate minority defeated the bill to merely expand background checks on gun purchases, which was supported by 90 percent of citizens.

Senators who voted to defeat this bill transferred their allegiance from their country to the money and political clout of the arrogant, reactionary leaders of the National Rifle Association.

Lamentably, only some of those senators can be defeated in the next election. Fortunately, all like-minded representatives can then be replaced.
