Tell Senate Republicans: Stop blocking President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee

Since the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Senate Republicans have been promising to block President Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court. President Obama — twice elected by the American people — has the constitutional duty under Article II to nominate a new Supreme Court justice with the advice and consent of the Senate. If Senate Republicans obstruct the president’s nominee from receiving fair hearings or an up-or-down vote, it would be an unprecedented abdication of their constitutional responsibility.

Senate Republicans are making it clear that they are willing to subvert the Constitution in order to have a chance to appoint a justice who opposes women’s health care, sides with corporations over workers, will allow big money to continue to hijack our elections, and more.

  • Tell Sen. Grassley: Stop obstructing and allow a vote on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee
    Since the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Senate Republicans, including Sen. Grassley, have been promising to block President Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court. President Obama — twice elected by the American people — has the constitutional duty under Article II to nominate a new Supreme Court justice with the advice and consent of the Senate. If Sen. Grassley obstructs the president’s nominee from receiving fair hearings or an up-or-down vote, it would be an unprecedented abdication of constitutional responsibility. Every Supreme Court nominee since 1980 has been given an up-or-down vote within 125 days of nomination.

It’s pure partisan obstruction. Senate Republicans, including Sen. Grassley, are making it clear that they are willing to subvert the Constitution in order to have a chance to appoint a justice who opposes women’s health care, sides with corporations over workers, will allow big money to continue to hijack our elections, and more.
