Latest Plans of the Party of No
The Republicans latest plans to block the efficient running of an Obama Presidency goes beyond just voting no on legislation. They plan to block and hold on nominees. And then complain that not much can get done without deputies or heads of agencies in place. David Hayes, nominee for deputy head of Interior, was voted down by a block Republican vote today. Also Dawn Johnson as head of the Office of Legal Council will probably not be confirmed. No good reasons. Just obstructionism. Without 60 votes in the Senate to avoid filibusters, aka just shut down all business, the Democrats seem powerless against the obstructionist Republicans.
