271 Trump nominees blocked by McConnell's inaction

The GOP - A Party of Whores

  • Only 16 out of 51 GOP Senators bothered to sign a letter urging that The Donald's nominees be approved.
  • I broke out laughing that even these 16 Senators still blame the Democrats. Sorry, the GOP is in charge. If BS "rules" block Republicans then McConnell needs to change them not play the blame game.
  • The corrupt GOP Oligarchs don't give shit about the American people or Trump. They drag their feet at every opportunity while running endless Russia "investigations."

(Breitbart)  -  Conservative senators have sent a letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) demanding that lawmakers confirm President Donald Trump’s 271 outstanding nominations and pass a spending bill before the August recess or skip the break altogether.

“We continue to witness historic obstruction by the minority party when it comes to funding the federal government and confirming the president’s nominees,” the letter said. “If we are complicit we are on the track for another last-minute spending battle come September.”

“However, if we take action now, we can break the cycle of continuing resolutions and omnibus spending deals,” the letter said. “Therefore, we want to offer our full support to expedite floor consideration, even if we must work nights and weekends and forgo the August recess to get it done.”

Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) spearheaded the letter, which was also signed by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Steve Daines (R-MT), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Dean Heller (R-NV), Ron Johnson (R-WI), John Kennedy (R-LA), James Lankford (R-OK), Mike Lee (R-UT), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Ben Sasse (R-NE), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).

“At this pace, it is unlikely the president will have all of his nominees confirmed before the end of his term,” the letter said.
