This is way beyond pathetic.

A crucial Senate vote on a bill to create an independent inquiry to investigate the deadly January 6 Capitol Hill riot failed Friday, falling short of the 10 Republican votes needed to advance and illustrating GOP efforts to move on from the insurrection that left five people dead and injured 140 police officers.

The vote was 54 to 35, showing the bill had a bipartisan majority of support with six Republicans voting with Democrats. However, the bill needed 60 votes to advance. The six GOP senators who backed the bill were: Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Rob Portman of Ohio, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Ben Sasse of Nebraska. Nine Republican senators and two Democrats didn't vote.

The Republican opposition highlights the hold former President Donald Trump still has on most of his party, and underscores the deep partisan divide surrounding the fallout of the attack on the US Capitol, a point Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made following the vote.

Bullshit that 11 senators weren't even there to vote. Pathetic! Fvckem all!

The dems just need to have the balls and run with it anyway.... you know, like the pubs would do if the situation was reversed. Expel every single one of those enablers and conspiracy theory morons. Dems need to stop being such pussies about everything. Ridiculous.

It's been FIVE fvcking months since Biden won..... why the fvck is trump still walking free living the dream off of taxpayers money?????? He should've been in cuffs at 12:01 January 20th.

Democrats have the MAJORITY! Why/how are trumper Republicans still calling the shots????

If I had a nickel every time I heard that the republican party was going to be buried for good....
To be fair, it might not happen, but they are giving it their best shot. Unfortunately there's still way too many millions of Americans that just fall in line and believe all the bullshit. There's basically no room any more for true conservatives with a brain.

Apparently none of the R's that voted against the commission realize that they, too, will be thrown under the bus and dragged at some point in the near future to the benefit of trump.

At least Sasse and a few others are smart enough to stay loyal to the party and Constitution, not a wana-be dictator.

It happens for whichever party loses the presidential election and then at the midterm it's the other party's turn to be on it's deathbed for two years until the next presidential election

I think you’re missing the point of the commission Bob. Equal members from both parties would be on the commission. What are you afraid of?
The communist demoRats didn’t want to look into antifa/BLM and other brownshirts their party funds so the hell with them!

Administrators/ Monitors "monitoring" us great unwashed need to be more informed about what they are posting. Truth is not in todays "drive by media" (RIP Rush). "Administrators/Monitors" should have more accountability on truth than the average Jimmy and Josie on the site. Just an observation.

There was never a Republican Party that capitulated to one person like this one. It’s not the Republican Party anymore, it’s Trump’s cult. Nothing more than that.
No it is the anti-DemoRat party and that is what is needed, nothing for the godless communist demoRats ever!

The Dems will screw up the next couple years and the Pubs will win the Senate and House. It’s pendulum politics. Both sides blow.

The Dems have been known to blow a good hand so I couldn’t rule that out. They need to get a bipartisan infrastructure bill done and hang their hats on that.
I have zero faith Mitch let’s his team vote for infrastructure even if Dems include a laundry list of pub priorities. It’ll be reconciliation, and if they go that route don’t even bother including pubs in the talks.

Nancy P. gave the Republicans everything they ask for and that bill went to the senate and they still vote against the Jan.6th investigation.

Might get one via the few remaining true conservatives. Kasich, Mitt and Cheney would be a good start, along with the Vet in the House that can’t stand what Trump has done to the party. That guy has a future in somebody’s party.
What vet are you talking about? I don’t buy your so called true conservatives starting a third party.

Kasich is a democrat through and through and has no balls, Mitt will be voted out in 25 and Cheney might not even make it to 22 as Wyoming has had it with her treason!
