Mitch McConnell & Senate Republicans: Do Your Jobs

To Senator McConnell and Republicans in the Senate:

President Obama has fulfilled his constitutional duty by nominating Judge Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court created by the passing of Justice Scalia.

Senator McConnell, you have a constitutional duty as well — to give Judge Garland a fair and timely hearing and a vote. Yet you have made it unequivocally clear that you do not intend to fulfill that duty.

This is an issue bigger than any political party. The American people expect you and other Republicans in the Senate to do your jobs, put politics aside and commit to bring President Obama’s nominee up for a timely hearing and a vote.
