Knee-jerk obstructionism is nothing new in Congress.
Extreme members have led government shutdowns, held up cabinet and judicial appointments, fought tooth and nail to take away health care from millions of people, or prevented movement on key issues like immigration reform and common-sense gun safety legislation.
But the appointment of our next Supreme Court Justice has to be different. Our Supreme Court is too important to be held hostage by the same partisan gridlock that has slowed progress on so many priorities.
We deserve a fully-functioning Supreme Court, and OFA is working to make sure obstructionists in the Senate get the message -- add your name to the thousands of supporters demanding a fair and timely nomination process.
President Obama is taking his constitutional responsibility seriously, and he's going to do the job he was elected to do. If Senate leaders choose to do the opposite, they'll be making a dangerous and unprecedented choice.
This year, the Supreme Court is set to rule on some of the most important issues we face, and their rulings will impact our country for generations to come. They shouldn't be hindered by working for months with an empty seat on the bench.
A vacancy on the highest court in the land caused by partisan obstruction is just inexcusable.
Speak up for a fair nomination process and a timely vote -- sign OFA's petition:
