Yeah right. They blther and dither and do nothing. They’ve sold Trump and the country down the river with their inept ways.
You are absolutely correct. I believe in my heart of hearts that the grand majority of so called republicans are actually avid supporters of the One World Government bunch. They want Trump gone and their goals to continue. RINOs rule the party. They are no different than the commies. One and the same.
Excellent. About time.
If a judge nominee needs a simple majority vote to be placed ‘on the bench’ there should NEVER be a procedural process to block or stall the appointment that requires more than a simple majority.
Likewise - a bill that only requires a simple majority vote to pass into law should NEVER be allowed to be held up by a procedure that requires a greater vote percentage than that required by the Constitution. We see cloture votes requiring a super majority blocking items that need only a simple majority to pass. That has virtually the same effect as requiring a super majority to pass anything. This, in effect, has changed the Constitution, but without actually going through the correct process to institute that change.
IOW - how on earth can a Constitutional vote be held up by a non-Constitutional vote / procedure? This should never have ever been allowed in the first d@mn place!
