Mitch McConnell Folds Under Populist Pressure, Extends Senate Workweek

ㅤ”The Senate will soon move into its 11th month into its congressional term and has yet to pass an Obamacare repeal and replace package, pass tax reform, confirm judicial nominees, and fund a southern border wall.
ㅤLast week, more than 100 national leaders urged Senate Republican leaders to use every means at their disposal to confirm more than 200 presidential nominations currently pending in the U.S. Senate, both for the executive branch and for the federal courts.
ㅤAt the moment, roughly 149 judicial vacancies exist, and yet the Senate has only confirmed seven of President Donald Trump’s 56 judicial nominees- nominees that experts have praised across the board.”
