Democrats Fail to Open Debate on Bill to Create January 6 Commission in Senate – These Republicans Who Voted with Democrats

The GOP finally successfully blocked the Democrats in its first filibuster of the Biden Administration.

The effort to open debate on a bill to create a commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot failed in the Senate on Friday in a 54-35 vote.

60 votes were needed to move the bill forward.

Here are the 6 Republican senators who voted with the Democrats in favor of a January 6 commission:

  • Collins
  • Murkowski
  • Romney
  • Cassidy
  • Sasse
  • Portman

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was triggered and feared Friday’s filibuster may be the beginning of a trend of Republicans blocking other bills.

One can only hope, but with Republican’s like this, it makes less and less likely; maybe it is time, we the voters, did something about this, primarying all of them out of office, put in someone who represent ‘we the people’ rather than their petty vendettas and hatred for everything Trump.
