GOP drags their feet on Trump appointees

GOP Senators are Fucking Losers
The retarded GOP Senate can't even approve 
Trump's nominees. I feel it is all part of the
bipartisan Republicrat plan to block Trump.

  • Only a FOOL thinks that a Republican controlled Senate can't get anything done.  They are in control. PERIOD.
  • It defies common sense that the majority party is not in control of their own chamber.
  • My theory (long held) is the GOP has zero interest in helping Trump or his blue collar supporters in any way.

(Daily Caller)  -  The White House sent another 12 nominations to the Senate for confirmation Tuesday, but the slow rate the of confirmations caused by procedural motions by Democrats will take the executive branch over 11 years to fill the posts, Republicans claim.
According to the most recent edition of the “U.S. Government Policy and Supporting Positions,” commonly known as the PLUM Book, there are 1242 appointments that require Senate confirmation and since July 11, 2017, 49 Trump nominees of those jobs have been confirmed by the upper chamber. Of those 49, 30 required cloture votes, so 1,193 posts await to be filled.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Office said in a statement Tuesday, “In the 173 days since January 20, 2017, the Senate has confirmed 49 PAS [Positions Subject to Presidential Appointment with Senate Confirmation] nominations, or one every 3.5 days.  At a similar rate of 3.5 days per nominee it would take 11.4 years (4,175 days) to fill the remaining 1193 PAS positions listed in the Plum Book.”
