USAToday has a great headline today, one that speaks for itself:
“Senators swore to support America, not the filibuster. Kill it to save the January 6 commission. — If Republicans filibuster the January 6 commission, they’re joining Trump’s insurrection. Will Democrats choose democracy or a rule that undermines it?”
They’ve got it right. Democrats need to push as hard as they can to get the work of governing done, within the rules, and ignore the foot-dragging, hypocritical moves of Republicans. On budgets (getting money to the parts of America that need it) and on investigating the insurrection, put the pedal to the metal. Leave the Republicans behind and let them whine. Until they remove the cancer that is/was Trump from their party, they don’t deserve a seat at the adult table.
