It is truly amazing how cowed (or ignorant) the Repugnicans are when they throw away the most restrictive border bill created in the last 70 years! Pathetic, but, once again, It is at our own peril that we elect people who don't believe in the US constitution and the rule of law. Definitely a win for Democrats for November.

They need issues to attack Biden so the border is the issue. They want to keep using it as an issue; solving it would be a feather in Biden's cap. They have nothing else. Let's hope abortion brings women in droves to the polls. Women's reproduction is an issue for women and their doctors -- not the politicians.

This, good people, is why a November bloodbath is predicted. You get a wishlist of a flawed bill and then trash it because of a madman lacking basic political skills. All of your eggs placed in the basket of a future felon who's hellbent on not being perceived as a loser. Trouble is, he is indeed a loser regarding everything he touches. That the GOP is a cult was established when trumpanzee descended the escalator. The embodiment of all things white supremacy exudes sans intellect. The low information spread from the voter to the party that figured their leader would provide all they desired. Well, you see the results of hiring a narcissist. The lawmakers prostrating themselves to a grifter who doesn't share. Now you can share in the utter humiliation in November.

It's not ironic OR hilarious that the border "crisis" is backfiring on the GOP and handing Biden a big victory.

Because Dark Brandon is a Judo Master. He knew very well that PAB wouldn't let Congress give him a victory no matter WHAT he proposed, so he called their bluff brilliantly.

And as for us in the progressive community, we played our parts very nicely too, broadcasting our outrage - which just serves to sell the plan to non-cult GOP voters and then ask themselves "Well, why DID they all say no?"

Now we can honestly say, we gave you the best deal you could have asked for and your King still vetoed it. Why should we compromise any further when it's obvious that you're not serious about solving the problem?

Trump evidently told Johnson, “Don’t take yes for an answer!”

The Democrats will use this “Border Bill” as a sledgehammer against the Republicans. It’s the beginning of February. Are the American people supposed to wait a YEAR for another President to handle the border??? Because that’s what it will be by the time dumpkin would be sworn in if the hellscape happened that he actually won the Presidency. A FRICKING YEAR!!! That’s what Mike “Renfield” Johnson is willing to do for his human orange overlord. Once a traitor always a traitor. The people who are looking to the Republicans WANT that border handled now!! So - let the Democrats get as many of the border agents etc. on their side and advertise the hell out of who is holding up the process and making everyone miserable.

I drive around the Capitol every day. Sometimes I stop the car…I step out … and I look at it I think of how these Maga idiots are making a decisions for We The People and the mess 🍊 is putting us through. My Republican friends are embarrassed by what’s going on.

I know we will most definitely prevail! We gotta werque, work, wurk!! We need and will blow it out of the water! 🌊

It’s almost like Putin is more interested in Ukraine failing than fixing our immigration system.

I can foresee a new Reality Show after ‘24, with DJT as host, “The Groveler”, so he can continue to deride all his R senators and congressmen and media lords who failed him.

I have wanted Biden to use state of emergency to fund Ukraine and I know he does not want to, but seems like a great opportunity when the house rejects the bill and the state of emergency is the border ( which Republicans have called it for years and don't want to end) Biden could the do the good things in the bill- more money for judges, giving green cards to those waiting for asylum, etc.
