Don’t allow the obstructionists to win (LCAction)

Politico is reporting that “Senate Democrats are preparing to put Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks through a grinding confirmation process, weighing delay tactics that could eat up weeks of the Senate calendar and hamper his first 100 days in office.”

Let’s rally to stop the obstructionists! Friends of Liberty Counsel Action, rise up and tell our United States Senators what we think of President Trump’s nominations. You can access LCA’s special Cabinet Poll by clicking here.

Hearings commenced this week in Senate committees for President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees. As expected, Democrat obstructionists are pulling out all of the stops to delay the confirmation processes.

Already this week, Senator Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s pick for Attorney General, was vilified by Senate Democrats heaping insinuations of racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and anti-Civil Rights on Senator Seasions.Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) has accused the GOP of attempting to “jam through” Mr. Trump’s nominees.Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is calling for the confirmation process to be delayed until extensive background screening tests are completed.

+ + A blatant double standard exists in the Senate.

As reported by the National Review, “By the time of his inauguration, [President] Obama had nominated cabinet heads for twelve of the 15 executive-branch departments. Of those nominations, the Senate unanimously confirmed five and confirmed another five in broadly bipartisan votes in the span of a mere six days at the end of January.”

Townhall’s Guy Benson reported that the Democrats are tripling down on their battle plan:

“Rather than angrily decrying obstructionism – some convenient exceptions to these complaints always applied – they’re returning to the pro-obstructionism approach they haven’t embraced since, well … the last Republican administration. So yet again, Democrats are looking at escalating the arms race of tactical partisan warfare in the US Senate.”
