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!
- U.S. Senate
The Senate must confirm the judges who will keep faith to the Constitution--its amendments, its history, and its core values like equality and justice under the law.
We've had enough delay and procedural foot dragging. It's time for Republicans to stop their obstruction of judicial nominees. We need as many Americans speaking up and telling the GOP to end its delays as we can get.
