Action Alert: Tell McConnell to Stop Blocking Pres’ Judicial Noms
Written by Natalie Davis on July 18, 2015
Any sensible person might think that Republicans would eventually get tired of blocking President Obama at every available opportunity. Well, maybe it’s time we stop trying to see rhyme or reason behind what Republicans do. Stand with Senate Democrats and demand that Republicans do their jobs instead of obstructing the president.
Just recently, Mitch Connell revealed on a far-right radio show—perhaps where he’s most comfortable letting his true colors show—that he plans to obstruct the president’s nominees for federal judgeships.
Tell Republicans to stop playing games with our justice system just to one-up the president. Some things are off-limits when it comes to political tricks. Consider that we’re already facing an alarming shortage of federal judges—there are dozens of unfilled posts across the country—and we’ve got a major disaster in the making for our justice system.
The Republicans have been in control of both houses of Congress for five months, and yet their promises of better days have turned up empty. In that time, Republicans have only confirmed FOUR judges, and with McConnell’s new pledge, it’s likely to stay that way for some time.
Stand with Senate Democrats and demand that Republicans DO THEIR JOB, rather than sabotaging the justice system as a political ploy.
