It figures. :roll:

$1:
The Senate vote was 54-35 — short of the 60 votes needed to consider a House-passed bill that would have formed a 10-member commission evenly split between the two parties.

It came a day after emotional appeals from police who fought with the rioters, the family of an officer who died afterward and lawmakers in both parties who fled Capitol chambers as the rioters broke in.

Six Republicans voted with Democrats to move forward. Eleven senators — nine Republicans and two Democrats — missed the vote, an unusually high number of absentees for one of the highest-profile votes of the year. Some said they had scheduling conflicts.

Of course they blocked it. If there was an investigation, they’d have to investigate themselves. Members of the GOP actively helped to try and overthrow American democracy and are acting like it was no big deal.

Also, how fucked is it that with a 54-35 vote, the minority vote actually won? The Democrats absolutely have to get rid of the filibuster if they want to truly accomplish anything meaningful because the next time the GQP gets control, that will be the last time there’s a fair election in the US.

The mask is off. There is no dealing with terrorists.
