BizpacReview: Senator Mitt Romney joined five other “Republican” senators in voting against funding President Trump’s border wall. In a move that surprised exactly no one, Romney voted in favor of a Democrat funding bill that excluded money for a border wall.
The other GOP defectors included Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Susan Collins of Maine, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
Remember these names:
– Senator Lamar Alexander
– Senator Susan Collins
– Senator Corey Gardner
– Senator Johnny Isakson
– Senator Lisa Murkowski
– Senator Mitt Romney
They voted on a bill today that would end the government shutdown without funding for the border wall.

As it is, neither the Republican nor the Democrat-backed bill passed amid the ongoing partisan stalemate. The GOP-backed bill failed 50-47, while the Democratic measure failed 52-44, the Daily Caller reported. The funding bills require 60 votes to pass.
By caving in to Democrats’ open-borders agenda, Senator Susan Collins of Maine opted for a short-term bandage over a long-term solution to the border crisis.
“This shutdown, the longest in our history, must come to an end,” Collins said on the Senate floor last Thursday (Jan. 24). “It has already caused far too much harm to 800,000 dedicated federal employees and their families.”
Many Democrat lawmakers have expressed a willingness to negotiate in good faith with President Trump to fund the wall. But Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi the highest-ranking Democrat in the US won’t let them.
In fact, 30 Democrats urged Nancy Pelosi to give Trump the vote on wall funding if he re-opens the government.
30 is not an insignificant number. https://t.co/QE028uJzbz
