Barely an hour after the news broke of the death of  Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made it clear that he has no intention of letting President Barack Obama replace the conservative icon.

Mitch McConnell stated, “The American people‎ should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice”.

McConnell stating that “The American people‎ should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice” is an outrageous statement.

The American people have already spoken… they elected Barack Obama as President and he has nominated a new Supreme Court Justice as required by the United States Constitution.

Mitch McConnell and Republicans has made blocking President Obama their top priority above serving the American people. 

On January 20, 2009, the day of President Obama’s Inauguration, Republican leaders in Congress plotted to obstruct everything President Obama proposed to make his presidency a failure with no regard to how it would negatively affect the American people, so they could win the White House back in 2012.

Those present who attended the meeting included Republicans Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, Pete Hoekstra,Tom Coburn, Bob Corker and Newt Gingrich who plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America’s Economy by among other things “Just Say No” to everything President Obama proposed.

On Oct. 29, 2010 Sen. Mitch McConnell stated in an interview with the National Journal, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."

Now Mitch McConnell and Republicans plan to block President Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee, Merrick Garland.

In a letter to Mitch McConnell signed by Republicans on the Judiciary Committee which included Chuck Grassley, John Cornyn, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake stated “to protect the will of the people, this committee will not hold hearings on any Supreme Court nominee until our next president is sworn in"

Refusing to consider a Supreme Court Nominee during the last year of this Presidents term is unprecedented. Ronald Reagan nominated a Supreme Court Justice during his last year in office and Mitch McConnell voted to confirmed his Nominee. 

Republicans has put hate for this president above doing their jobs.

We DEMAND that Mitch McConnell and all Republicans who are involved in blocking President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, to DO THEIR JOB or RESIGN FROM OFFICE.
