When we first began telling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his band of Republican obstructionists to #DoYourJob by holding a hearing and vote for President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, we didn’t realize just how deep the problem ran.
According to a new report, this year’s Republican-led Senate will be in session for the fewest days in 60 years:
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has worked painstakingly to craft an identity that's distinct from the raucous presidential contest — one built on stability and passage of legislation the Democrats couldn't get through when they controlled the Senate.
But the chamber is on pace to work the fewest days in 60 years, the party continues to insist it won't act on President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nomination, and Republicans' ballyhooed strategy to shepherd all dozen spending bills through the chamber is in serious trouble.
It probably shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. When Senators refuse to perform the most basic, Constitution-derived requirements of their office, there just isn’t much of a need to show up for work.
You can tell Mitch McConnell you don’t approve of his attendance record by signing a CREDO Mobilize petition started by a local CREDO activist to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
