McConnell promises a Senate vote on Supreme Court nominee

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday at 87 years old, opening up a seat on the high court, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)  has promised to bring a vote on any nominee President Trump puts forward.

Once again, we will keep our promise. President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.

For Democrats, this is a worst-case scenario. They, along with Ginsburg were hoping she could hang on to her seat until Joe Biden could take office.

Democrats shouldn’t be shocked, though, as McConnell has warned them on multiple occasions that he will attempt to confirm any new nominee no matter how close to the election it falls.

Already the Democrats are calling foul, saying that it is not fair for the majority Republican Senate to place another Trump nominee on the Supreme Court, decidedly weighting it to the Constitutional side of the judicial spectrum.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the Johnny-on-the-spot of the Democrat party, rushed out to demand — only hours after Ginsburg’s death was announced — that no appointment to the court should be made “until we have a new president,” a direct quote from McConnell who refused to bring President Obama’s 2016 SCOTUS nominee, Merrick Garland, up for Senate confirmation 9 months before the 2016 election.

But McConnell affirmed that the Senate will vote on a nominee and pointed out that it is appropriate because Republicans control both the Senate and the White House. In 2016, the Democrats only controlled the White House.

President Trump released a list of potential SCOTUS picks last week, including GOP Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Tom Cotten (R-AR), and Josh Hawley (R-MO). Let’s hope he picks a young, strong Constitutionalist.

Perhaps Biden will now actually release his list of possible Supreme Court Justices.

The Democrats are ALWAYS yelling foul, when things don’t go the way they PLANNED. What they are now doing in reality is saying their own stinking nickname “foul” every time. We all know the foul democrats, don’t we! What a bunch of Marxist LOSERS.

Pelosi and her EVIL gang will always lose in the end. The Lord will not let them win as there is not a good Dem in any of them. Do what you have to Mr. President but don’t let them win a thing. Then this country will be back on course for success, GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY

I find it interesting that the democrats are afraid of another constitutional judge. America is about the constitution and judges should be constitutional. After all, the constitution is what puts teeth in the rulings. We need a judge that is ethical and is well versed on the constitution and plans to uphold it, and uphold all of it, not just one groups interests.

If the table was turn the Dems would think it was ok to appoint one. We need to keep Trump in and keep America free.

The Demonrats had their chance when KING OBAMA was in office. He’s gone so they FKED UP! RBG was just another tin plated Dictator like Obama who got to full of themselves and will fade away as among the worst that America ever had. Thank You RBG for giving this Country another chance to keep the leftist Commies and Globalists from doing more damage.
