Do Congressional Republicans want to lead — or just be Dems’ opposition?

President Donald Trump has taken quick action on immigration and other thorny issues during his brief time in office.
Congressional Republicans, on the other hand, appear to growing weak-kneed when it comes to a proposed tax cut, border wall and repealing Obamacare.
Their inaction is getting to media pioneer Matt Drudge.
“No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” Drudge tweeted on Wednesday. “But Republicans vote to shut Warren? Only know how to be opposition not lead! DANGER.”
That was followed by, “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now. Just lots of crazy. Back to basics, guys!”
A short time later, he even zinged White House priorities:
Drudge’s observations beg the question: Do Congressional Republicans actually want to lead? Or do they prefer being the opposition party and complaining on Fox News all day?
House committees, as well as the full body, passed numerous pieces of legislation ranging from an Obamacare repeal to canceling Michelle Obama’s onerous lunch rules while leaders knew they had no chance of garnering President Obama’s signature.
By 2014, the Republican-led House had already voted to repeal Obamacare SIX times, the Washington Examiner reported.
Now, with man-of-action Donald Trump in the Oval Office, Republicans could run the table — if they have the guts.
