"Here's the problem: Republicans can't pass the annual funding bills alone. We need cooperation from the Democrats," said Sen. John Barrasso, Wyoming Republican, on the Senate floor. "We need the House Democrats' cooperation, and here in the Senate you need to clear the 60-vote hurdle, so we need Senate Democrats to be involved in the process as well. But Democrats prefer impeachment grandstanding rather than governing — that's what we're facing here today."
Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., said he'd be chairing an Environment and Public Works Committee session.
