"Hereís a losing argument for 2018: We didnít reform the tax code or cut your taxes all that much, but at least we followed all the Senateís budget rules."

The Senate has an important role to play in giving the President its ďadvice and consentĒ on nominations, and I take that role very seriously. Yet weíve only just begun to fill the key vacancies in the executive and judicial branches because the unprecedented use of filibusters, holds, and other procedural tactics has delayed an extraordinary number of highly qualified people. Filibusters are sometimes even being used on nominees that Senators actually support, in an effort to extract other promises or just to slow the Senate down. Itís time for this to stop. For our government to function the way itís supposed to for Minnesotans and all Americans, it needs to have personnel.


President Trump nominated Minnesota Supreme Court Justice David Stras to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals four months ago. Justice Strasís nomination has not been taken up by the Senate because it has been blocked so far by Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. They have withheld their blue slips to prevent the Senate Judiciary Committee from holding a hearing.

"Are Ryan and McConnell next?"

Maybe Rand Paul should be next.

Democratic Leadership Looks Like Old Soviet Politburo

Which is better for their cause, stay in office forever or groom new leaders for tomorrow?
(Remember that 'their cause' is to personally hold onto power for as long as possible.)

Darling of the LEFT John McCain has brain cancer.  Yet he pompously goes around giving anti Trump speeches and voting against anything he comes up with :

Should someone with brain cancer be in the Senate?  Waiting for him to seize in NJ.....

I too dislike McCain, but IMHO his having brain cancer does not enter the conversation.
