Last night, Republicans in the U.S. Senate stayed up all night to delay a vote on a federal appeals court judge.
“Just to put this in perspective, the Senate Republicans did not force all-night debates when considering immigration bills, food stamp cuts, or many other important pieces of legislation. But, they think blocking the President’s choice for an appeals court is worth holding up the entire legislative process. This Congress is the least productive in history, because of obstructionist tactics like this – which are more about childish vendettas than about doing the People’s business.” – Thom Hartmann
