    1. @Fraudster Biden-Dickknuckle Except this time they agree with conservatives about taking the fence down and sending the troops back.

    1. Of course they’re against democracy. They’re spineless and brainless Trump front men.

  1. There’s only truth and they got to stop being like kids and telling the truth 🧐🧐⚖️⚖️

  2. Manchin, Sinema, if you vote No on this bill, we can’t be held responsible for what we’re about to say to you.

  3. Can’t Republicans vote for anything? I am sick of them being so negative on EVERYTHING, and it has only been 5 months!

    1. The leader of their party Mr. Turtle said his SOLE goal is to block the Dems from doing anything, and passing any bills. (and you know he’s good at it because he said, and successfully did, the same thing when it came to Obama’s nomination of Supreme Court Justice Merrik Garland, and much more from the Obama era)

      So no, they really can’t vote for anything. But at the exact same time they scream for bi-partisanship. They’re a satirization of themselves at this point

    2. Yeah — 5 months of a Dem majority. And they STILL can’t get anything done. No $15 minimum wage

    3. @Harvey Manfredsenjenson You need 60 votes in the senate for that 1 and the republicans are not on board. 50/50 split is just not gonna cut it

  4. Of course Republicans voted against supplementing Capitol security. They’re have zero respect for Capitol law enforcement.

    1. They apparently thinking that beating up Capitol police officers is “typical tourist behavior”

  5. As somebody who was massively in favor of the Jan 6th commission, I am actually against this bill. Weirdly enough, I agree that whenever there is an issue, we tend to just throw money at it hoping that the problems get fixed. It’s not the money that I’m against, but I just dont feel the bill is in-depth enough. I wish they would have waited until findings about Jan 6th are complete so they could really go after the root of the problems.

    1. @Sarah F. 4.1 We now have a competent president who will actually call in the national guard in case of an emergency. I dont think throwing more money at the problem, without properly addressing the root of the issues, will make the Capitol much safer than it is.

    2. @Joey Fletcher I can see your point. I live in D.C. and want to see everything possible done to deal with this, however, and feel comfortable that this bill will help. Have a good day.

  6. To apply what the GQP is saying about the AZ “audit”…. “Hey republicans! What are you afraid of them finding??” 😂🤣

  7. $1.9 billion is alot of money for signs at the Capitol stating ‘Lethal force may be used by Police’
    Ultimate deterrent.

  8. _”$1.9 B, oh no!_
    _That’s ¼% of the defense budget!_
    _How will we ever afford it?!”_

  9. The republican party turned my brother into a nut case. Practically have to do a drug like intervention just to pull him out of the Qnmoron cult. Thanks republican party.
