If I were a Republican in Congress, I’d introduce a bill — tomorrow! — banning, and, in fact, criminalizing, such seizures in the United States. That would be popular, and if the Democrats were dumb enough to oppose it, it would make people wonder what they were up to.
Neither Boehner nor McConnell would ever permit such a bill to reach the floor.
It might be too embarrassing to their Democrat friends. And we certainly wouldn’t want anything to interrupt the ongoing GOP cave to the Democrats.
