Will the Other Republicans Please Stand Up?

Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, has stood up in favor of another extension of unemployment benefits. At the moment, the vile Senator Jim Bunning, Republican of Kentucky, is single-handedly blocking the extension. What caught my eye in Senator Collins's remarks is that she says her effort is being made
on behalf of numerous members of the Republican caucus who have expressed concerns to me
Well, you bunch of cowards: stand up and be counted, for crying out loud. Are you just afraid to back a Democratic effort on behalf of your constituents?

Yes, they are afraid. Party discipline is about all they have left.
