According to reports in the press, Susan Collins “had a visibly angry reaction confronting Chuck Schumer” after the vote on whether or not to create a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection. Really? She’s mad at the Democrats?

Where was her visibly angry reaction when 35 members of her own party voted not to create the commission, or when nine Republicans didn’t even show up to vote?

Where is her visibly angry reaction to her party’s continued refusal to accept the results of the 2020 election of Joe Biden?

The For the People Act would implement automatic voter registration, same-day voting registration, end gerrymandering, and provide matching federal dollars to candidates who pledge to swear off large campaign contributions. Why doesn’t it make her visibly angry at Mitch McConnell who has declared the defeat of the act his party’s No. 1 priority?

She may be considered one of the more bipartisan members of the Senate, but what really does that matter at this point when her party has no interest in responsible governing? Why isn’t she visibly and loudly angry about that?

She’s got a safe seat for the next six years. What’s it going to take for her to actually renounce the direction of the Republican Party, its continued attempt to undermine the republic, and its refusal to get to the bottom of the insurrection?

That she continues to support this travesty is what really makes me angry.
