  1. So, I just read the whole text of the bill … really, really, cannot understand why any representative of any party or affiliation
    would have voted no.

    We live in the twilight zone.

  2. So we know who the top insurrectionists are and they should all be charged and arrested because they’re supporting the actual insurrectionists in the field. ridiculous!

  3. It seems unlikely that a second January 6 will happen in 2024, a large aspect of why it occurred at all was because Trump intentionally lowered security and disregarded all threats, because he knew exactly what he was doing.

    It won’t happen again under Biden, and if Trump wins in 2024… Well, it’s going to be a dark for years. I’m hoping, the red line for a lot of Republicans and Democrats, is if this guy is seriously tries to make himself president for life. I know too many people who still have their heads in the sand about how malicious and awful this guy is.

  4. The GOP is just a recreation of Pink Flamingos. They’re all competing to see who can be the most disgusting human beings, because, I guess that’s what their base wants? I’m just waiting for DeSantis to eat a piece of dog shit.

  5. And those 9 Republicans? Not coming back, so they were free to vote their conscience for a good bill. That makes me sick, because if they were worried about reelection they would have voted against it. What a bunch of cowardly pieces of excrement the rest of them are. The Republican party is a sick, twisted, immoral, unconstitutional body that needs to be disbanded, for the sake of this country.

  6. >”To all those who oppose this legislation, I ask you, how could anyone vote against free and fair elections—the cornerstone of our constitution?” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)—who leads a party that has repeatedly fought to keep more progressive challengers [off ballots](https://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/19/us/democrats-legal-challenges-impede-nader-campaign.html) and [out of debates](https://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/09/06/jill-stein-blasts-two-party-cartel-controlling-presidential-debates) across the country—[said](https://www.politico.com/news/2022/09/21/electoral-count-act-democrats-maga-trump-00057843) Wednesday on the House floor.

    The author: I said what I said 💅

  7. Does this mean they actually think use of violence to take/remain in power is ok? Are the voters ok with this? Another mystery to a foreigner like me.

  8. Aren’t all nine of them retiring? For representatives, it’s a club that you pay admission in votes on the floor. Once you’re going out, NOW’S the time to do the right thing.

    Sleazeballs. Once they don’t worry about retaining power, they suddenly grow a conscience.

  9. “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)—who leads a party that has repeatedly fought to keep more progressive challengers off ballots and out of debates across the country—said Wednesday”

    Talk about a biased author lol.. that has nothing to do with the article.

  10. Duh, the Republicans want to take absolute power, and I am convinced they will get it, Because the system of white supremacy is too strong.

  11. Because they know that Dems would never pull the same insurrection shit. Well maybe that’s where the messaging needs to go. Hmmm? You don’t need a crazy violent mob to simply deny election results and refuse to vacate the White House.
