Washington, DC – As President Obama prepares to nominate a new Supreme Court justice, Republicans have already vowed to block the nomination. AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka.
[Rich Trumka]: "It's a somber and momentous issue. But Senate Republicans are already planning obstruction. They say they will ignore the president's nomination. Refuse to act on it. Simply abandon their vital constitutional responsibility to advise and consent on Supreme Court nominees."
Trumka says the GOP stance is a shirking of their job responsibilities.
[Rich Trumka]: "This is an absolutely shameful, un-American position. And we cannot stand for it. I have one message for Senate Republicans. Do your job. That's what the American people who hired you expect you to do."
