Tell the Senate: We've Had Enough. Stop Republican Obstruction.

This petition had 48,646 supporters

Judicial nominations have been the centerpiece of Republican obstruction in Washington. Using every trick at their disposal to filibuster or deny votes to qualified nominees, they’ve created a vacancy crisis on the federal bench that is denying access to justice for countless Americans.

The recent election should be a wake-up call that it's time to stop blocking the confirmation of the president's nominees -- virtually all of whom are definitively uncontroversial and enjoy bipartisan support. We now have a chance to right a very serious wrong and confirm all the nominees who have already been confirmed by the Judiciary Committee but whose confirmations are still pending.

It’s time for the obstruction to end once and for all. Take action today and tell Republican Senators to confirm the president's judicial nominees!
