Senate rubber stamps Obama nominees

July 30, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement reacting to the impending confirmation of two Obama nominees to the National Labor Relations Board:

“The rubber stamping of two nominees to the National Labor Relations Board without even a semblance of basic Senatorial vetting, signifies the damage done by Senator John McCain and his Republican followers who gave away the threat of filibustering nominees.

The Senate’s new “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” confirmation approach is a disgrace to the institution and a disservice to the people who elected Senators to perform their basic constitutional duties.”
