Asking as a registered Republican, what would stop a future U.S. Senate from declining to provide “advise and consent” for a Supreme Court nominee for two years? For four years?
Sen. Thom Tillis’ position is ridiculous; the voters have had a chance to express their opinion on the matter and elected President Obama. He certainly has the right to vote against the nominee, but his argument to delay consideration is dangerous. It might be the beginning of a slippery slope that destroys our way of government. How does he address this?
