Some Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) may be bailing on Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer’s plan to block Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Politico reported.
While Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), and Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) have not promised their support for Kavanaugh, they did say openly that Schumer would not be able to influence their votes. All three of these senators voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s first nominee to the high court.
“I’ll be 71 years old in August, you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you-know-what,” Manchin declared, referring to the idea that Schumer could pressure him to oppose the nominee, according to Politico.
“I’m going to vote the way I’m going to vote regardless of what the leader says,’ Heitkamp insisted.
“My decision won’t have anything to do with Chuck Schumer,” Donnelly stated simply.
Even more liberal senators like Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) seemed to resent Schumer’s demands.
“He doesn’t come to me and say: ‘You’ve got to vote with us on this.’ He knows I’ll tell him to take a flyin’ leap,” McCaskill said. Adding that she would vote how she thought was right and that “it has nothing to do with the party.”
McCaskill also said that Schumer “knows better” than to ask her to vote with the rest of the party.
All four of these senators are in danger of losing their seats in November. They are all from states that voted for Trump. The chances of them voting for Kavanaugh are very high. The question that will have to be asked by the voters in their respective states would be: Where were these senators when the tax cut and tax reform was before the senate? All four voted with the Marxist/Progressives. Where were these senators when the vote to repeal Obamacare was taken? All four voted with the Marxist/Progressives. Where were these senators when the vote to close the borders was taken? All four of these senators voted with the Marxist/Progressives.
Now these four senators are trying to show they are independent senators and not consistent voters with the Marxist/Progressive agenda. Voters in West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri, beware. These four senators will vote for Kavanaugh only for the purpose of trying to fool you. They have proven they favor the Marxist/Progressive agenda; the agenda that has attempted to destroy our American principles. If they are sent back to the senate, they will fall in step with the Marxist/Progressives for at least the next five and a half years. You have been warned.
