President Barack Obama has done his job by putting forward an undeniably qualified, highly-regarded nominee. Now it’s time for senators to fulfill their own constitutional responsibilities and give Judge Merrick Garland a full hearing and a timely up-or-down vote.

The American people expect their elected representatives to do their job and stop playing politics. Our country needs a fully constituted Supreme Court, Judge Garland deserves a fair hearing and the American people are entitled to a government that works, not one hobbled by obstructionism.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
