Put the country before politics! (LCAction)

In addressing the Senate Democrats’ recent actions to derail President Trump’s Cabinet, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared, “Democrat obstruction has reached such extreme levels that the smallest number of Cabinet officials have been confirmed in modern history at this point in a presidency.  It’s a historic break in tradition, a departure from how newly-elected presidents of both parties have been treated in decades past…. Now is the time to put country before party!”
The gridlock must be stopped.

During the Cabinet confirmation process, Senate Majority Leader McConnell has repeatedly rebuked his Democrat colleagues for the obstructionist tactics being used to block the confirmation of President Trump’s nominees, and employing mean-spirited rhetoric used to impugn their character. He sternly reminded his colleagues across the aisle …

“The American people elected a new President in November. Democrats don’t have to like that decision, but they do have a responsibility to our country. The American people want us to bring the nation together and move forward. It’s far past time to put the election behind us and put this President’s Cabinet into place – just as previous Senates have done for previous newly-elected Presidents of both parties.”

+ + The president deserves his Cabinet!

Yesterday, in an historic event, Vice President Pence cast the deciding vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. Many friends of Liberty Counsel Action participated in our campaign ahead of the vote to encourage Republican Senators to hold their ground and confirm DeVos as Secretary of Education! It worked! However, last night in another stall maneuver, Democrat senators waged yet another overnight vigil to oppose the nomination of their colleague Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, during which, Sen. Elizabeth Warren was silenced for breaking Senate rules.

In contrast, President Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, Eric Holder, who was steeped in controversy prior to being confirmed, had an easier path to confirmation in 2008.

It’s important that we keep the pressure on our elected officials in the Senate to do the right thing and give the president his Cabinet. If you have yet to do so, please strongly consider sending a powerful message to your two senators and up to 98 others to stop the obstructionists and confirm President-elect Trump’s Cabinet picks!
Your faxes will be sent immediately to the Senate using your own letter or one we have prepared for you.
Everything you need to send your message is one click away.

Still ahead this week will be the confirmation hearings and possible votes regarding Thomas Price, of Georgia, to be Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Steven T. Mnuchin, of California, to be Secretary of the Treasury.

Liberty Counsel Action’s Fax Barrage will send an immediate message to the Senate demanding that President Trump’s nominees be confirmed and give his administration the opportunity to do what we elected him to do.

God bless you for taking action with us!

Mat Staver, Chairman
Liberty Counsel Action
