Call it as you see it, but these Senators are set to hurt President-elect Donald Trump before he steps into the White House.
Trump doesn’t owe any lobbyist or congressional member anything as he rode the wave of the American voter to their house on Pennsylvania Avenue. Now these rat diseased Senators want Trump to play ball with them as if they owe him something. They are playing DC politics with a non-politician who will reset things when he steps in the Oval office.
Sens. Pat Roberts of Kansas, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina will not help Trump get his Supreme Court nominee confirmed to replace Antonin Scalia. The nuclear option put into place by Democrats is available but these men (and I use the term loosely) are playing hardball.
From Washington Examiner:
Key Senate Republicans say they won’t support a change to Senate rules that would allow President-elect Trump to quickly get his Supreme Court nominee confirmed, a sign that Trump may find it harder than he was hoping to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Trump’s stunning victory helped Republicans maintain their majority hold on Congress’ upper chamber, and set up the possibility that the GOP might change the rules to allow Supreme Court nominees to advance by simple majority, instead of the current 60-vote threshold.
A strong argument for imposing the so-called “nuclear option” is the expectation that Democrats will do all they can to block Trump’s nominee, since Republicans blocked President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, for nearly a year.
But an ongoing Washington Examiner survey of Republican senators shows that Trump may have a hard time convincing them to blow up decades of Senate rules. Republican Sens. Pat Roberts of Kansas, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have all said they would not support a change.
If these nuts in the Senate decide not to exercise the Nuclear Option, as the Democrats have done, then this country will come apart at the seams. Once the American people understand what it is, they’ll demand the Republicans do it, if they don’t, they can expect to have their computers and phones melted down.
They will have to contend with protests as they’ve never seen before the Tea Party to force them to act on behalf of the people in this country. State legislatures should be setting up recall laws, as I type this article, in order to let the Senators know their state will recall them for dereliction of duty if they don’t comply with the wishes of the people and their president.
Fill the seat and get America moving again or face the wrath of American voters!
