Not a Rubber Stamp
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
“Nowhere in [the Constitution] does it say the Senate has a duty to give Presidential nominees a vote.”
Those words from Senator Harry Reid, who stated them in the May 19th, 2005 Congressional Record. Reid said. “It says appointments shall be made with the advice and consent of the Senate. That’s very different than saying every nominee receives a vote.”
On the same day, Harry Reid added this to the Congressional Record: “The Senate is not a rubber stamp for the executive branch.”
Let’s make sure Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican Senate don’t forget it when it comes to any Obama Nomination to replace Justice Antonin Scalia. Call them at 202-224-3121, that’s 202-224-3121.
