Sen. Johnson’s “Doing Nothing” strategy now official GOP position on SCOTUS hearings
Unfortunately for Ron Johnson, “doing nothing” while the nation’s highest court sits deadlocked won’t cut it.
After Johnson spent a week touting Donald Trump’s strategy of “delay, delay, delay” until President Obama leaves office, his Republican allies in the Senate have finally united in their obstructionism.
Mitch McConnell stood on the Senate floor today to announce that Republicans will “withhold” consent on any Obama nominee. It gets worse: not only are McConnell and Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley united in opposition to any potential nominee, Republican leadership is publicly against even holding hearings.
Emerging from a leadership meeting Monday evening, Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican and member of the Judiciary Committee, flatly said “no” when asked if the Senate should convene hearings, saying voters in November should render the judgment.
Ironically, Johnson may get his wish after all. Come November, the American people and the people of Wisconsin will decide that they want leaders who actually do their jobs. Unfortunately for Ron Johnson, “doing nothing” while the nation’s highest court sits deadlocked won’t cut it.
