Nasty Democrat Majority In Senate to change Senate Rules to stop Hero Tuberville
"Senate Rinos like Lindsay Graham and Mitt Romney are working with Senate Democrats in the majority to halt Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville's objections to using government funds for abortions and drag queen promotions in the U.S. Military, " says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
News Reports confirm: The Rules committee has passed a resolution to change Senate rules to allow a vote over the objections of Senator Tuberville.
Senate Democrats pushed ahead Tuesday with a resolution that would allow for the quick confirmation of hundreds of military nominees, an attempt to maneuver around a blockade from Sen. Tommy Tuberville over a Pentagon abortion policy.
Almost 400 military nominations are in limbo, and the number is growing, due to Tuberville's blanket hold on confirmations and promotions for senior military officers. Despite bipartisan outrage and pressure from members of his own party, the Alabama senator has dug in as he fights the Pentagon to end its abortion policy. It's a stance that has left key national security positions unfilled and military families with an uncertain path forward.
"There has been a lot of negativity and dysfunction in the Senate these days, but Senator Tuberville has singlehandedly brought the Senate to a new low," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said at the Senate Rules Committee meeting where the resolution was approved.
