Ted Cruz Dares Democrat Senators To Boycott – If They Do, Ted Threatens To Confirm Amy Faster

What’s Happening:

Democrats have been trying to find ways to slow the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.

They threatened to impeach Trump, pack the court, and obstruct in other ways.

Some have even promised to boycott the hearings, meaning they wouldn’t attend. Perhaps as some form of protest.

Sounds like a vicious response? Not exactly. Boycotting wouldn’t slow down Republicans.

In fact, Sen. Cruz is daring them to do it, allowing Republicans to do this:

Excellent idea!  And if you & all your Dem colleagues boycott the hearing altogether, we’ll avoid the political circus & the desperate attempts to smear Judge Barrett and her family.

And we’ll confirm her faster!

Democrats appear to be making a largely symbolic gesture of disapproval by refusing to meet with Trump’s nominee.

Although their Constitutional obligation is to participate in this process, some have said they’d just boycott.

Sen. Cruz is looking on the bright side of this apparent left-wing temper tantrum. He explained that with no Democrats involved in the process, they can approve Barrett even faster!

We saw how Democrats tried to stop the confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Although they did not have the votes to stop Republicans, they hoped to turn the process into a circus by spreading unsubstantiated allegations.

This time around, it seems they want to avoid being a part of the process altogether.

What does it say about a party that is so bitter that Trump is in charge, that they’d ignore the duties required of them as senators?

Yes, Cruz is right, that would speed up the process. But it also shows that Democrats just might have little respect for the very laws they swore to uphold.

They are required to question Barrett and vote on her appointment. Even if they don’t want her on the court, that’s their job.

What do you do with people who refuse to do their job?

You fire them, don’t you?

Key Takeaways:

  • Democrats threatened to boycott the Barrett hearings.
  • Ted Cruz said that without Democrats obstructing they can confirm Barrett faster.
  • Democrat senators are obligated to participate in confirmation hearings.
