Nearly every GOP senator, along with six Democrats, voted to filibuster a bipartisan bill designed to crack down on migration and reduce border crossings.

The vote was 43-50, falling short of the 60 needed to proceed. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was the only GOP senator to vote to advance the bill Thursday, while six Democrats voted with the remaining Republican senators to block it.

This never stood a chance of passing, It was meant to be a symbolic vote to make Republicans appear to not really care about border security.

But thanks to the six Dems who don't have the balls to stand up and do the right thing, and terrible messaging by Democrats, I think this is very possibly the final nail in the coffin of Biden's reelection campaign. Why, even as they are often trying to do the right thing, do Democrats so often give the impression of ineptitude?

Ham handed move by Schumer to do this without the full support of his party.

The Dems always step on their own d*&^s. Schumer is a terrible leader that should have been replaced years ago and he continues to blunder and make stupid, theatrical moves that only reinforce his ineptitude.

So Nowehe stupidity brgins? Blaming Biden and Schumer for a Republican defeat of a Republican bill? Really? If you can't convince a suicidal man with a gu not to shoot himself does that make it your fault when he does? Now, the Republicans own the problems at the border, they have no one to blame now except themselves and the same goes for Trump,This wa stupid politics and, try though they will, it can't be blamed on Democrats. The Republicans are now the proud owners of the peoblems at the border and trump can't deny that he led them to this self-inflicted wound tp the GQP. If Trump actually shows up to debaye Biden is going to eat him alive with this incredible blunder of their own making. I am pretty sure some Republican Senators will make sure Trump gets his fair share of responsibility for this.
