The GOP demanded a 50/50-split January 6 Commission. Democrats said yes. The GOP demanded a 7-month limit. Democrats said yes. Now Republicans have killed the Commission.

35 Senate Republicans voted to cover-up the deadly attacks of January 6, 2021.
35 Senators showed today their allegiance is to Donald Trump and not to the United States of America.
Any Republican who voted against the January 6th commission and shows up at a Memorial Day event is a complete hypocrite. How can you honor those who died for our democracy when you won’t even defend it with a vote?!?
Capitol Police should no longer provide security or protection for any Republican who doesn’t support the bipartisan, independent investigation of the January 6th insurrection.
Republicans oppose an investigation into January 6th because they don’t want people to know the truth. That’s all.
What a humiliating day for what’s left of the Republican party.
I don’t want to hear about Benghazi ever again.
Quinnipiac poll: 59% of Americans say the Republican Party is *not* acting in the best interests of democracy. 34% say it is.
Republicans won’t vote for Biden’s plans no matter what’s in them. So why not go big? Why not a total repeal of the Trump tax cut plus a tax hike on the super-rich? Why not Medicare for All? Why not a Green New Deal?
Having followed Presidents’ budgets for >40 years, I think it’s fair to say that while I might modify some things in the new Biden budget, it would, if enacted, do more to reduce poverty and inequality than any other budget in modern US history
Trump’s website — including his new blog — is attracting fewer visitors than the pet-adoption service Petfinder and the recipe site Delish. That must be driving him nuts!
