Panicked Schumer Claims The End Of The Senate Is Coming If...
Dems need to take a deep breath and accept that Trump picking another Justice is not the end of the world. Senator Chuck Schumer seems to think that the Senate is going to implode if Trump does HIS JOB and picks another Justice. He feels that it will polarize the two parties, making it almost impossible for Dems and Republicans to work together. Where has he been?
Schumer made this dramatic claim in response to Senator McConnell declaring that they would be voting to fill that vacancy.
“By all rights, by every modicum of decency and honor, Leader McConnell and the Republican Senate majority have no right to fill it, no right,” Schumer said."
"He added that Senate Republicans should have “no problem adhering to Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish” as Leader McConnell “held the Supreme Court vacancy open for nearly a year in order to ‘give the people a voice’ in selecting a Supreme Court justice.”
“I worry for the future of this chamber if the Republican majority proceeds down this dangerous path. If a Senate majority over the course of six years steals two Supreme Court seats using completely contradictory rationales, how could we expect to trust the other side again?” he said.
“If, when push comes to shove, when the stakes are the highest, the other side will double-cross their own standards when it’s politically advantageous, tell me how this would not spell the end of this supposedly great deliberative body, because I don’t see how,” he continued."
Is Biden's forgetfulness contagious? We have been a polarized nation for quite a while now. We just had the Longest Government Shutdown in history from Dec 2018 to January 2019 (35 days). That was because Dems and Republicans could not come to an agreement on spending when it came to strengthening our border security. Schumer is just upset that he is powerless to stop Trump from picking a new Justice.
