    Dems: Confirmation Hearings Schedule Limits Scrutiny

    Senate Democrats are frustrated that Republican leaders have scheduled six confirmation hearings for Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees next Wednesday, the same day the president-elect will hold his first press conference in many months.

    Democrats oppose several of the appointees and hope to drag out the vetting process, thus maximizing the public exposure of their complaints. They are concerned that with multiple hearings occurring simultaneously, it will be more difficult to fully question and evaluate the nominees in public settings. They’re also concerned that the schedule coincides with Trump’s press conference – and will take place the day after President Obama’s final speech in office – further taking attention away from the confirmation process.

    More two faced methods employed by the right-wing.

    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”

      More snowflake wailing.

      They have been losing seats every election since 2010. Wake up and smell the coffee.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
