Why won't Congress debate the ISIS war?
Jon Stewart quotes a regressive House member, noting their strategy is to avoid a debate at all costs: "At a time of war our Congressional inaction is pure political calculation." This after all the regressive rhetoric that they would like to discuss the situation, since ISIS is going to kill us all. But the President just hasn't invited us to do so. Congress doesn't need the President's permission for debate on the issue. Regressives just really don't want to debate it, instead preferring to avoid taking responsibility for their vote on the war. They are cowards and liars, but we already knew that.
