Senate Republicans Set New Record for Obstruction

  • 0 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

NARAL-GuinnessAccording to a press release from NARAL Pro-Choice America, the group has submitted an official petition nominating Senate Republicans for a Guinness World Record for “Longest Delay of a Supreme Court Nominee”:

NARAL Pro-Choice America today submitted an official petition for Sen. Chuck Grassley and his Republican Senate colleagues to be recognized as Guinness World Record-holders for the longest delay of Supreme Court confirmation process in history. The letter, which is available HERE, comes 125 days after President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

This ties the previous record for the longest delay in a confirmation process, set back in 1916 during the confirmation of Justice Louis Brandeis. While Senate Republicans have claimed their record-breaking obstructionism has not been motivated by a political agenda, leaked audio from Senate Judiciary Chair Grassley confirms that their strategy has really been about limiting access to abortion all along…

…“The Colorado General Assembly can get the entire state’s work done, including a budget, in 120 days. Senator Gardner can’t even manage a meeting with Judge Garland in 125 days,” said Karen Middleton, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado. “Senator Gardner and his Republican Senate colleagues are setting a record, and not in a good way. Coloradans expect better of their public servants.”

Yes, this is political stunt, but it is a pretty damn good one on a very important issue.
