A Soft and Malleable Spine – But Growing. Democrats Stop Two Chumph Confirmations

31 Jan

What I am hoping is the beginning of Democrats growing a spine. Let’s hope they discover the courage to also trash Sessions, and the rest of the rats. They need to block every singe one.

Empty Seats as Democrats Boycott

Senate Democrats Block Committee Votes On 2 Trump Nominees

Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee boycotted planned votes on Tuesday morning to advance the nominations of two Trump Cabinet nominees.

The committee was to begin voting at 10 a.m. on the nominations of Georgia Rep. Tom Price to lead the Department of Health and Human Services and Treasury Secretary-designate Steven Mnuchin. Committee rules require that at least one member of each party be present for a vote to proceed. If and when the committee does vote, their confirmations would still need the approval of the full Senate.

Price has been under a cloud of controversy for weeks over questions about whether he properly disclosed stock trading of a biomedical company, which says the congressman was able to purchase with a discount, according to the Wall Street Journal.

As for Mnuchin, he faces more questions about his role in the foreclosure crisis as the head of OneWest Bank. As NPR’s Yuki Noguchi reported when Mnuchin testified before the committee earlier this month, he was grilled by Democrats “for his role as CEO of a company that took over IndyMac Bank, now known as OneWest, which failed because of its bad home loans and later pushed through many controversial foreclosures, ultimately yielding massive profits for Mnuchin.”

The Columbus Dispatch reported over the weekend that Mnuchin “flatly denied in testimony before the Senate Finance Committee that OneWest used ‘robo-signing’ on mortgage documents. But records show the bank utilized the questionable practice in Ohio.”

Ohio Democrat Sherrod Brown said, “We are not going to this committee today because we want the committee to regroup, get the information, have these two nominees come back in front of the committee, clarify what they lied about — I would hope they would apologize for that — and then give us the information that we all need for our states.”

    Oh ,the irony of Hatchs statement that the Democrats are being obstructionists because they don’t like the president! Sounds like business as usual over the last eight years to me. They should be used to it.

      I think I would describe his statement as more on the lines of Hypocrisy. Considering he was key to blocking many of Obama’s nominations.

      I think I have explained to you several times that the revolt against Putin’s Bitch and the Reprobates isn’t going to come from the Chickenshit Democrats in office.

      It is coming from the invisible citizenry.

        You are confused. Black folks will be affected by the shidt, which is why I offer tips on self-defense…

        But I don’t see black folks as being central combatants in what is going to happen. White folks are pissed. They have far less to lose, and the numbers to make it happen.

        I see the first step being a small cyber war, which has already started. When Putin’s Bitch acts to suppress the demonstrations – all hell is going to break loose.

        The boi is picking this fight.
