Another 4-4 Decision at the Supreme Court as Ron Johnson and Senate Republicans to Refuse to do Their Jobs

With governing on hold as Republicans play politics with the court, Americans are growing increasingly frustrated.

MADISON – Republicans continue to fiddle while the Supreme Court comes to a standstill. Today’s 4-4 decision – the third in as many months – is just another reminder of the real world impact of Senate Republican’s failure to do their jobs.

With governing on hold as Republicans play politics with the court, Americans are growing increasingly frustrated. A new WSJ/NBC poll out today finds that a majority of voters want the Senate to do its job and consider Judge Garland’s nomination before the end of the year.

Senator Johnson claims he wants American’s to “have a voice” in the decision, but despite the chorus of American voices asking the Senate to do their job, he still refuses to consider the nomination of Merrick Garland. Instead, he wants Wisconsinites to do what he’s done and just “move on.” He hasn’t even met with the President’s nominee yet. Maybe he’s just not as sociable as he claims.
