Nearly five months after the attack on the Capitol on January 6th of this year, Republicans continue to downplay and naysay the attack. Time seems to have diminished their memories of that fateful day, and they claim it was nothing more than a few ‘tourists’ or ‘patriots’ having a good time. Never mind that five people were killed and 140 police officers injured, and never mind that if the attempt to overthrow an election had succeeded, we would be living in a very different country today, one ruled by a madman and his cronies.
Robert Reich explains the utter importance of investigating the attack and the events that led up to it, the people who may have played a role in instigating it. If we fail to learn from the past, then we are destined to repeat it. Listen closely to his words, for he speaks the truth. We the People pay to sustain a government that operates in our best interest, yet nearly half of those in Congress have completely forgotten their oaths, forgotten their purpose, and their only goal is to cement their own positions of power.
