Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wasted no time, not even giving the public an opportunity to grieve, before insisting that the Senate hold a vote on President Trump’s nominee to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
In 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to allow a vote on President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee in the eight months leading up to the election, stating:
"American people are perfectly capable of having their say on this issue, so let's give them a voice. Let's let the American people decide. The Senate will appropriately revisit the matter when it considers the qualifications of the nominee the next president nominates, whoever that might be."
We knew Republicans would apply this “principle” only when a Democrat was President.
But we can hold the GOP accountable at the ballot box.
