The Shame of the Senate and Tennessee

Time to “Man Up,” boys…

While Tennessee Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander have “officially” endorsed Judge Neal Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, as late as yesterday they were cowardly refusing to publicly say whether they would vote for the so-called “nuclear option” to force a vote on his confirmation, which is expected this Friday.

“But the two Tennesseans wouldn’t say whether they would support the so-called “nuclear option” to change Senate rules to allow the confirmation with a simple majority”.  — The Jackson Sun 4/4/2017

Really, Senators?

The key vote is not whether you will vote for Gorsuch, Lamar and Bob — it’s whether you will vote to allow majority-vote, bypassing the 60-vote rule to overcome the filibuster.  You know that.  And to pontificate about anything other than that is an insult to the intelligence of every citizen in the state.   Yesterday, in a TV news interview Corker was even questioned as to whether or not he was a RINO and was asked if was trying to cut some sort of deal with Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and the Democrats.

Just tell us if you will vote to stop the Democrats’ attempts to block an up-or-down vote, damn it, and quit jerking us around.
