Senate Judiciary Sends Barrett to Full Senate for Confirmation Despite Dem’s Boycott

The White House from Washington, DC / Public domain

The Democrats boycotted the Senate Judiciary vote to send Amy Coney Barrett to the full Senate for confirmation. The Republicans were unfazed and sent her anyway.

According to The Daily Wire:

The rules say in order to have a quorum, at least two members of the minority party must be present.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday said “to my Democratic colleagues, you had four days of hearings, two days to question the judge. She deserves an up-or-down vote. She did an outstanding job representing herself… She deserves better than this but she will get out of the committee today. I have the votes to get her out of committee.”

Instead of showing up, Democrats on the panel put pictures of people who rely upon the Affordable Care Act in their chairs.

Graham waived the rule requiring minority participation and the committee voted unanimously 12-0 to move ACB’s nomination forward.

Graham then hit the Democrat with this: “As to my Democratic colleagues’ refusal to attend the markup, that is a choice they are making. I believe it does a disservice to Judge Barrett who deserves a vote, up or down.”

Well, good on Graham, and now in true lefty fashion, I didn’t get my way I’m gonna throw a temper tantrum. I’m not coming! So what’s next more “peaceful” protests? You going to kill more conservatives? The problem with the left is they are dirty in everything they do. So their assumption is the right is too, and while there are some but as a whole lefties are flat crooked lieing murderers.

Once again, the democrats are negligent in their duties. They took an oath and swore to defend the Constitution and perform their duties. They did neither. The solution is simple: unless you want more of this and a dis-functioning congress, vote all democrats out of office in November.

Notice to the criminal Democrat Party Mob leadership, if you had won the last two Senate races, you would not have this problem!!! Once again the American voters are a hell of a lot smarter than you are by keeping the Republican Senate!! Besides, you all are all always “sore losers’, aren’t you???? We love to see you go “crazy, insane and just plain nuts, so just do it again for us like puppets”!!!!!!!

Lindsey is certainly a puzzle. Sometimes he comes out swinging and looks like a great constitutional conservative and other times is the definition of RINO. I like the conservative version and hope that he settles on that, heaven knows we do not need RINOs . Our great president needs people he can count on to back constitutional ideals and not blow in the wind.

Tell who you are with and I will tell who and what you are. Barrett has shown absolutely no character in accepting the nomination from a law breaking president. She should have demanded to delay the appointment until after the election and give the voters an opportunity to voice their favorable or unfavorable stance on who goes to the Court. Her presence in the court will cause a much needed integrity and has been a part of a farce and disrespect to the voters.

Way to go Senator Graham, You are to be congratulated. Your “colleagues” as you called them are a disgrace to the Senate and to the country they claim to serve. The people who voted them into office should be ashamed.
