Republicans Holding America Hostage…..Again – ‘McConnell: No Lynch vote unless Democrats relent on bill’
A vote on the Attorney General should be a simple up or down vote.
But when it comes to Republicans and governing…..nothing is simple.
Let’s hold the Attorney General vote hostage in exchange for Democrats caving in on putting an abortion rider into a Human Trafficing legislation.
- ‘Democrats have pointed out that Lynch’s nomination has been held up in the Senate longer than any U.S. attorney general nominee in three decades’.
Washington (CNN) ‘Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday said he plans to hold up attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch’s confirmation until the Senate passes a now-controversial human trafficking bill’.
“This will have an impact on the timing of considering a new attorney general,” McConnell told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.” “I had hoped to turn to her next week, but if we can’t finish the trafficking bill, she will be put off again.”
- ‘Democrats noticed an abortion provision embedded in the bill that would prevent victims of human trafficking from using restitution funds to pay for an abortion’.
Because a women who is kidnapped or lured into forced labor or sex trade and gets pregnant needs to have that baby…….because it’s a gift form God.
