Could they do such a trick in the house? A few members hang around for ten second sessions?
Problem is, Republicans don’t have the GUTS!!!!
I believe it’s the Senate that has to vote to confirm appointments. So why would it do any good to keep the House in session if the Senate calls a recess?
The only way the US House can have anything to do with confirmation of appointees is budgetary. The House does not confirm appointees. The Senate does.
Someone appears to be unaware that the SENATE is the only body which can block appointments. And the SENATE is controlled by Democrats. And, since a RECESS appointment is made during a time the Congress is not sitting hence it CANNOT be blocked.
Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware that this tactic was possible, or that the Dems had used it.
"Conversations with Republican Hill staffers in both chambers suggest House GOPers aren't considering this strategy because it would be viewed as an extreme step that would disrupt the sense of comity between the two chambers."
Which is why the ball-less RINOS in Congress lose virtually every time. The Dems obviously could give a sh*t about "comity". The 'Pubbies need to use EXACTLY the same tactics as the Dems, and point out the Demos hypocrisy.
